  • 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 natural curiosity about the world.

  • We offer a Montessori curriculum with an emphasis on visual arts, physical education, music, 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. 

  • The Inquiry Zone allows students to investigate science and engineering activities in their grade level science standards.

  • We are a uniform school.

We offer:

  • Pre-K (full-day)

  • Discovery Club (fee-based, off-site)

  • Outdoor Classroom Experiences

  • Lego League

  • Intersession programming offered three times per year during breaks
