It is our policy to ensure that all students reach thier fullest potential by providing an individualized academic curriculum based on each child's specific learning needs and abilities.
Small Class Sizes
Our strict 1:8 teacher-to-student ratio means that each student has maximum one-on-one contact with each teacher. It also provides our students with the emotional support that they often
require in order to be successful.
This teaching method relies on using different practices to increase aptitude and learning through the engagement of modifications and compensatory techniques to enable students to fill in
existing “gaps” in their knowledge base.
Teaching techniques that aid a student in areas that need compensation are essential for academic advancement. Students are taught the necessary skills to compensate for another skill
that they may lack.
These 30 minute classes change every nine weeks. These classes focus on developing artistic creativity, social skills, gross motor skills, written expression, keyboarding and fine motor
Crossroads students are given access to Co-Writer software, a writing assistant with intelligent word prediction that helps struggling students build and write complete and correct sentences.
It reduces the number of keystrokes needed to produce a word or sentence, limiting the student’s frustration and allowing them to enjoy their creativity.
Theater visits allow us to incorporate and integrate drama, music, and art into our school curriculum, encouraging the students to compare varied media, language and productions.
Field trips enable our students to apply practical experience to what they have been exploring academically in the classroom.
