  • Crossroads is the only year-round school in the district, with a 45 days on, 15 days off schedule.
  • Montessori education encourages childrent to learn through their natural curiosity about the world.
  • We offer a Montessori curriculum with an emphasis on visual arts, physical education, health/wellness, science, engineering and technology.
  • Students solve problems, design solutions, and meet challenges through robotics, 3D printing, coding, and hands-on building in the engineering lab.
  • 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.
  • We partner with a Playworks coach once a week throughout the school year. Playworks helps schools make the most of recess through on-site staffing, consultative support, professional development, free resources and more.
