Crossroads is the only year-round school in the district, with a 45-days-on, 15-days-off schedule. Montessori education
encourages children to learn through their own natural curiosity about the world. Certified Montessori teachers create an
environment that meets the individual needs and interests of each child. Learning is enhanced through a hands-on approach
in the classroom. Crossroads Montessori offers a Montessori curriculum with emphasis on the arts and technology. Multi-age
classrooms provide opportunities for students to learn from each other and benefit from the consistency of staying with the
same teacher for two to three years. Montessori students demonstrate self-direction, self-discipline, teamwork, peacemaking
and a sense of world citizenship.
