    This school is best to be avoided. They built a new school Which is great but the old problems still exist-- bullies troubled children incompetent teachers rude office workers and bureaucratic administrators. All of this outweighs any positive aspects of this school; therefore not worth your time! Thanks to all of this my son will no longer be attending this school.

    I LOVE crossroads elementary. They make every child feel very special and will sit and spend time with you one on one like children need at that tender age. I attended this school and going through the hardest of times I was always drawn out to feel on top of every one else. This is the best school of every school I've been through and has definitely been the one to make me feel the most important the most likely to achieve my goals and help me want to strive for more. Crossroads Elementary is an overly-exceptional school.

    My son has went to Crossroads from K- 2nd. He's now going into 3rd. I haven't had any problems w/ the school. My son is an A-B student. All the teachers he's had have been wonderful. Mrs. Beers is doing a wonderful job. As far as "drama" I've not seen any. It's up to us parents to make sure our kids know how to act in school and out. No we can't hold their hand all the time but it's up to us to teach them right from wrong. Can't depend on others for that! Keep up the great work Mrs. Beers!!

    The school is not up to any standards compared to the school my child attended before. My child has lost any desire to learn or attend school. My child has been dumbed down coming to this state. Her teacher is a lazy person and expects them to 'figure it out' as part of her core fore teaching. In the state of Texas students are taught and not expected to have prior knowledge. Horrible teacher and school all together.

    The principal is worthless and she is so afraid of some parents she bends the rules for some and not others...I hate that my youngest has to even go there the drama is ridiculous.
