Welcome to Crossroads Alternative High School

The Staff of Crossroads/Kentwood Community Education, in partnership with the students, parents, and community will create a stimulating, positive, and safe environment ensuring mutual respect.

We believe that all students can learn essential and effective cognitive skills enabling them to be responsible and productive contributors in a changing world.

The Crime Prevention Association of Michigan is proud to announce that Ian Gibson, Dean of Students at Crossroads, has been chosen as this year's recipient for the Outstanding Crime Prevention Practitioner Officer Award. The Crime Prevention Association of Michigan Award is presented annually to honor its members and persons who have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the citizens of Michigan in the field of crime prevention.

 Mr. Gibson has coordinated and led a group called KOPS, which stands for: Kids and Officers Partnering in Schools. The KOPS program began at Crossroads in 2012-2013 school years. The purpose of the group is to bridge the gap with at-risk youth and law enforcement. Also involved in leading the groups with Mr. Gibson are Officer Jeff "Gus" Augustin from Kentwood Police Department and Deputy Tom McCutcheon of Kent County Sheriff Department. Congratulations to Mr. Gibson, the officers and the students for a wonderful program.

 Thank you Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs for supporting Crossroads!

A message from the superintendent
Dear parents and community members:

It is with great enthusiasm and appreciation that we announce the passing of the Kentwood Public Schools Bond request. Our community has considered this opportunity with a great deal of care and interest, and has responded in support of our students, families and the broader community as partners in supporting excellence in education.

Kentwood has always been a district built on fiscal responsibility, demonstrating prudent management of public funds. We are committed to continue to exercise this same responsibility with the funds generated by this proposal. This community decision will allow us to address our district’s needs in safety, technology and operational efficiency for years to come. Kentwood Public Schools values the partnership that’s been built with the community and respects their financial support. Together, we will continue to do great things.

The Kentwood Public Schools remains committed to providing an education of excellence to every child that we serve. Each teacher and staff member at KPS seeks to partner with our families to ensure that positive relationships are developing within the school environment and that high expectations are reflected in the arts, athletics, and within each of our academic programs.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of our schools and community.

Michael Zoerhoff
Superintendent Kentwood Public Schools
