• Crossroads
Each day begins with a warm hug or high-five from the director, who greets every child by name at the front door. Inside, our youngest learners experience the thrill of discovery in a diverse environment that values each student’s interests, background and unique point of view.

Learning With Meaning

Crossroads empowers students to problem-solve across all areas of the curriculum. Teachers guide student inquiry through dynamic lessons that are experiential, child centered and socially mindful. Children develop their natural exuberance, playfulness and need for personal expression through physical education, Life Skills and the arts.

Ideas Into Actions

The Elementary School places a strong emphasis on issues relating to social justice. Crossroads gives students the tools to be “upstanders” who speak up for what they believe is right and contribute to their communities and their world.

An Inclusive Community

The Elementary School offers a cozy “second home” where parents, guardians and teachers create a nurturing space for children to flourish. Weekly Monday Morning Meetings and Friday Gatherings—which may feature cultural celebrations, student presentations or a rousing performance by the Parent Band—enhance a sense of unity and belonging.
“You can be who you really are here and not be judged. You don’t have to try and ‘fit in’ because everyone will treat you as equal as anyone else.””
