- For Parents
Crossroads School, Inc. was founded in 1977 by Carol Garnett, a Masters Level Special Education teacher. After twenty-three years of service, Ms. Garnett retired and Dr. Gila Arnoni, an alumni parent, stepped in as the Head of School. Motivated by her wish to meet the needs of as many students as possible, in 2004 Dr. Arnoni applied for and was granted a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit designation and created a Board of Directors. Under her leadership, the school thrived, with a steady increase in enrollment, the purchase of additional property and the development of a Twice Exceptional Program and High School. Dr. Arnoni retired in 2018.
Crossroads School continues to uphold the belief of our founders; students with learning differences will flourish when provided with personalized curriculum, continuous encouragement, a low teacher to student ratio, flexibility, a rewards system and creative teaching methods. Over 40 years, the school has built an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching, the success of its students and the friendly and supportive atmosphere of its community. Today, Crossroads is a recognized leader in the specialized education of students with learning differences.
Crossroads School, Inc. prepares students with Learning Differences (K-12th grades) to integrate into a conventional school or college by facilitating maximum academic and social potential in an emotionally safe and supportive environment.
