Principal's Message

Matthew Fernandez

Mr. Matthew Fernandez, Principal

Welcome to the Crossroads School.  My name is Matthew Fernandez, and I am very excited to be joining the Union County Educational Services Commission in the role of principal.

Crossroads School is an innovative public school for children between the ages of 3-14 with Autism Spectrum Disorder focused on the development of sensory integration, communication, socialization, and problem solving skills.  Crossroads School prioritizes communication, socialization, and independence across all disciplines. The integration of the principles of applied behavior analysis is integral to the success of our students, and helps guide our staff to make best practice decisions.
