Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences Reviews

42 reviews
All Categories
At Crossroads School, students thrive as learners, artists, and people. Rigorous coursework, paired with high level discussions of society's major problems, push students to become active global citizens dedicated to making a change in the world. The teachers' commitment to the students is unparalleled; the learning style often asks students to connect curriculum and their own lives, providing for deep personal and intellectual refection. The campus is vibrant and lively: at lunchtime, some students play music and dance on tables while others can be found rehearsing student theatre, playing in the annual ping pong tournament, engaged in one of the school's 30+ community service and social justice clubs, and more. Crossroads is a place where students can explore themselves and their passions in a safe, warm environment, all while applying their newfound knowledge to real world problems. Crossroads students prove that even high schoolers can make a difference!

Crossroads allows students not only to flourish academically, but in their personalities and in the ways they interact with the world around them as well. It's programs like Crossroads' one of a kind Human Development program that make this school shine! From your first Life Skills class, to your first Environmental Outdoor Education (EOE) Trip, to your senior year Rights of Passage trip at the Ojai Foundation, Crossroads is a place that values growth not only in the classroom, but throughout your time in the world!
Crossroads offers an entirely new method of teaching that is unprecedented at any other high school in the country. Students often take part in discussions about race, sex, and religion in our country and world. We are unhinged by the administrations openness to talk about the injustices millions of people face in their everyday lives because of their socio-economic status, race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender.
