Principal's Welcome


Dear Quality Hill Families,

I would like to officially welcome you to The Hill!  I hope that you join in our staff’s excitement for an incredible year full of experiences that will cultivate a love of learning in your scholar and create enthusiasm in your family and throughout our community.  


It is important to me and our staff that QH feels like a team and family, so I’d like to let you know a bit about myself.  I was born and raised in Iowa and graduated from Iowa State University (GO CYCLONES) with a B.A. in Elementary Education.  I moved to Kansas City after graduation and began my career in education teaching 5th grade at Santa Fe Elementary in the Hickman Mills School District.  My passion for school choice lead me to my ventures in the charter school world, teaching math and science at Scuola Vita Nuova.  While at SVN, I earned my Master’s Degree in School Administration from the University of Central Missouri.  I later became certified in the area of special education and began working at the Ewing Marion Kauffman School as a Learning Support Specialist. I continued to fulfill my passion, serving the school’s most struggling students in the area of math and then was later promoted to the Dean of Students where I supported 5th and 6th grade students and teachers in the area of behavior management.  I was thrilled to learn about the expansion at Crossroads Academy and to have the opportunity to open a new school, a dream I have always had.  Outside of school, I am a soccer mom and enjoy spending time outdoors with my daughter and dogs.


Being your Principal at Crossroads Academy - Quality Hill is an absolute honor, and a job that I cannot do without you.  At Quality Hill we are committed to providing every scholar an education of the highest caliber.  We will partner with you to make sure that your scholar is not only excelling academically, but that he/she is also developing as a young citizen, showing kindness and respect to our team and community.  We encourage you to be your child’s biggest cheerleader, and to be ready to come alongside us in the experiences we create.  Together, our team and families at Quality Hill can accomplish great things!


I am beyond thrilled that you are a part of the founding family at Quality Hill, and I’m looking forward to a wonderful year at The Hill.


Best,


Lindsay Yates
