High Expectations – We believe our students and teachers are capable of great things and inspire them to actively seek knowledge and understanding, think independently, reason critically and embrace challenges. School-wide goals and expectations are owned by every student, staff member, parent and board member, and equal accountability creates an environment where every student can excel.
Authentic Learning – Our teachers work tirelessly to ensure that learning comes to life for students at Crossroads Schools. Through project-based learning and downtown expeditions, students explore realworld issues and problems through hands-on learning experiences. We strive to create a love of learning in all students.
Creative Culture – Every member of the Crossroads community is a learner and creator. Our students are challenged to be innovative as they solve problems and overcome challenges. Our teachers creatively engage their students, recognizing how each student individually learns and adjusting their teaching accordingly. And our organization uses cutting-edge research, forging and proving best practices, to give our students an excellent education.
Educational Equity – Crossroads creates an environment where all students flourish. Our welcoming school culture is sought out by families of all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, and we are committed to ensuring that every student succeeds. We are a community that reflects our city and our world, preparing students for a global marketplace.
