I spent Saturday night with the awesome staff, teachers, parents & students of Crossroads School at their annual gala. Crossroads is a non-profit organization that offers an alternative to traditional schools for students with special needs, whether they have a learning disorder or are gifted and simply not challenged in a regular classroom.
There is at least 1 teacher for every 8 students at the school. Parents pay tuition; and the remainder of the cost is covered by fundraisers like the gala Saturday night at The Plaza Club of Houston. The event raised approximately $30,000. Crossroads School Director Gila Arnoni says it’s a tremendous accomplishment for a school with just 45 students.
