Crossfield Elementary School, opened in 1988, is named after an aeronautical pioneer whose accomplishments include being the first aviator to fly twice the speed of sound and the first test pilot to fly the X-15. A.Scott Crossfield was a neighbor and friend of the school and served as a role model for intellectual curiosity, educational preparation, and high standards of excellence.
Crossfield is a home for the active mind. The school has a strong instructional program in which student engagement with learning is important. Students at all levels are encouraged to develop an understanding of both the content and the process of learning. A well-equipped library-media center is literally and figuratively at the center of the school.
Parents are active and involved in student life at Crossfield. Volunteers are very much in evidence every day. In addition to providing extra hands, the PTO supports a wide variety of initiatives, including funding for student enrichment, staff development, and an outdoor classroom.
Staff members use differentiated instruction to meet the needs of students with varied learning styles and abilities. Crossfield continues to support inclusive special education programs to meet the needs of students with disabilities. An energetic staff, focused students, and a supportive community work together to prepare students for lifelong learning.
