About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Crosstimbers Academy Reviews
Unfortunately, the school Crosstimbers Academy was has been effectively gutted. The majority of the founding staff, including the principal, either retired or resigned at the prompting of the CEO. Ultimately, the fun, out-of-the-box scholastic experience that CTA provided for the last six years is being replaced by a desire for money: to cram more and more students into classes, and to move towards a diploma-mill atmosphere. None of the teachers hired to replace the founding staff have ever taught, presumably the better for the CEO, who literally disapproved and wanted the resignations of staff who were "too innovative". Low paid, first-year teachers, a CEO indifferent to education and the needs of students, and the collapse of the unique atmosphere it had combine to make Crosstimbers Academy a school of choice that a parent should choose NOT to pick.
Crosstimbers Academy is a great school. The teachers have found a way to make everything easy and fun. It is one of the best school that i have gone to.
