Crossroads Academy students and teachers was featured on KCPT’s The Local Show on Thursday, May 23rd. PBS camera crews spent several days at the school in April and May filming students and teachers in the classroom, at Barney Allis Plaza, at The Kansas City Public Library and at the Artists Take Flight Art Gallery. The segment will focus on how Crossroads Academy’s urban location is providing students with unique cultural and civic educational opportunities and giving parents who live in the downtown area a neighborhood school option.
The story will be The Local Show’s lead segment on May 23rd. The story will be available for viewing online by Friday, May 24th. For more information visit The Local Show website.
The Crossroads Academy feature is part of a 2013 series of stories on The Local Show dedicated to projects of strategic importance to Downtown Kansas City. For more information about this project visit the Downtown Council of Kansas City website.
