Welcome to Cross High School!
A student's middle and high school experiences serve as the foundations of the adult lives. These are the times when students learn who they are and where they fit into the world. Students will use these years as a time to explore opportunities and expand interests that will develop into life-long skills. Cross High School is the place where students’ natural abilities will be nurtured and supported to ensure their success after they leave our halls. We will work together with our parents, students, and community members to make this time in the lives of Cross High School students as fulfilling, exciting, and engaging, as possible. It is our desire that each and every student has a rewarding, positive, and successful experience here at the home of Trojan Pride, Cross High School.
