Student Perspectives

In their own words…

Every year, Crossroads graduates of the Lower School (5th graders) and Middle School (8th graders) share their reflections on their Crossroads experience with the school community. In every grade, students are given opportunities to become comfortable with public speaking. These are some examples of some of these speeches, all of which were written by the individual students with the guidance of their teachers.

“A Passing Glimpse”


“This is the Place Where I Belong”

“What I Learned from¬†Frederick Douglass”

“Inspired by the Odyssey”

“Lessons from Harry Houdini”

“On Becoming Helena”
