Crosstimbers Academy Reviews

Reviewed on

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.
