Experiencing Crosby first hand has made me realize that I am ready for college. The councilors are there for you, the principals listen to your side of a story, Teachers are of GREAT quality, No student left behind. AP/PAP classes are rigorous, teachers WONT hand out grades, your GPA is earned! Tests properly cover the material learned in a correct manor, rules are set and any breaking of them results in punishment, which is fair. Ive seen nothing wrong with this school. Go Cougars!

I am currently a junior at Crosby High School, and I must say that it is probably the most active and spirited community to grow up in. Never have I seen nor heard of any teachers who will go so far to help as they do at Crosby High School. I am currently enrolled in as many AP programs as the school allows and am engaged constantly in Student Council, Cougars Crest(an organization that lets the students and teachers get the rundown on latest school events from the principal directly), theatre, NHS, SNHS, Leo Club, and other various services around the school. As long as students are willing to break out of their shells, they will fit right in with the diverse and buzzing atmosphere at Crosby.

I attended and graduated Crosby High School. I was in the CISD school system the majority of my life, and overall it was extremely disappointing. The majority of teachers lack professionalism and do not prepare their students for college. The Pre-AP and AP program is decent, and if you pay attention and try to get something out of it, you will be pleasantly surprised when you remember something you learned. The regular classes are a joke, except when you have a good teacher, then it is bearable. Students often engage in fights, exchange harsh words and threats on a regular basis. I was appalled at how much disrespect there was with students, teachers and staff. Students are often ignorant of other cultures and lifestyles, which is evident when you talk to foreign exchange students at CHS about their experience in the US.

Crosby High School would be the best school I've ever attended. I went to a couple through out high school. There is no racism from student nor faculty and staff. Theres a bad kid every once and awhile but you're going to get that any where you go. We dont live in a utopian world, things arent perfect and the people most certaintly arent perfect, everyone makes mistakes. Mostly everyone in Crosby tries. Teachers care they arent just in it for the money. Principals are willing to listen to your side of the story. If there is an absence of a parent, a teacher will help. The constables well, they're alright, but the judge they send you to is strict but sees the right side of the story. Students here dont joins cliques for the most part. For those of you complaining, what did you do to help?

Crosby is like many schools, it has good qualities and bad qualities. On the whole the good exceeds the bad. They have an excellent pre ap and ap program for students that are preparing for college. On the down side the standard or regular classes are a hit and miss depending on the teacher that your child gets. The administration tries to treat everyone equally. The athletic program has many achievements,but because we are a smaller school district college scouts do tend to overlook our athletes. We have an excellent music program,theatre program, choir and band. There are many activities for students to become involved in their school. As for parent involvement, we have many that help out, and some that don't. This is of course due to the level of time different people have available.

The schools in the district are safe, and I do not worry about my child's safety. I am generally pleased with the district except for the following: Not all teachers input grade information into Parent Connect on a timely basis. Teachers occasionally make mistakes in reporting grades on report cards. Corrections are not always made in a timely fashion. Deadlines are set for students to complete school projects; however, some teachers fail to adhere to the designated deadline and accept late work. The district needs to invest in an email system that works. The professionalism of some administration staff members is questionable. Phone calls and letters are not always responded to by the Superintendent or principal. The district should obtain bid proposals from vendors on all major projects, up to and including the consulting firm being utilized.

Think twice before you enter this school district. My daughter has been here since kindergarten and now is about to enter the 11th grade. All students should be treated the same and they are not, it's so unfair to those who do want to succeed but don't really know where to start. Crosby takes potential away from each child.

This School is zero tolerence, which is good. But the only things I see wrong here, is that if a student is getting beaten up by someone,and trys to defend them selfs,Then that student is also given a citation, and must go to court also. Even thou they were protecting them selfs. Now that is an 'UNFAIR' practice in my books. Is a student who never gets in troble, and has been bullied most of their school years, not allowed to defend them selfs? I say look at the facts, know your students, and then only cite the one who started it.

Crosby High School is a great place to go, the majority of the students are good, and those who are not, do get punished. The teachers (with the exception of 1 or 2) are very good, and go beyond what is meant to be taught. There are hardly any drugs or violence, (maybe one bad kid here and there) and the school is NOT racist (like some of the other reviewers said) the school has an even mix of blacks, whites, and hispanics, who are all treated the same. The only bad part about Crosby High School is the lack of parental participation. The parents of Crosby don t seem to give a care what is happening and whenever there child is being punished for breaking the law/rules, they act as if there child should have no personal responsibility, and have to face punishment for the offence!

This school has served me and my family well. All three have attended college and have several degrees. Of course there is always room for improvements, but the teachers do a good job with what they have to work with. Most students try hard, unfortunately there seems to be very little support from parents, for their own students and for the faculty and staff at CHS. Those with negative comments towards CHS, I would like to ask, what did you do for your child's education? Sending them to school is only the beginning, being involved has more impact!!

This school might not waste time on reviewing material for a state given test they spend more time teaching things that are more advanced and will help in college. Compared to other schools the drug probalem isn't that bad, crosby's principal jsut cracks down harder on the bad children instead of letting them get away. Many schools want to keep ratings up so children miss out on the discipline seen in this school. Also if crosby were to spend more time on studying for the tasp test it's students wouldn't be as successful as they are currently during ap exams for college credit.

I believe this is the most prejudice school in texas. From the superintendant down, this district does black students an injustice since they do not attempt to educate but hammer the black kid's self estime. No plans ever existed to better improve race relations.

Very poor school. Most teachers do not have proper degrees, drugs and violence are horrible and the principle is the worse seen yet.

Very poor school. College prep courses are remedial at best and other tech offerings are non-existent. The few teachers that are exceptional are struggling with a budget that doesn't exist (except for the sports program). Don't move to this school district if you desire to get a decent education.

I am a graduate of Crosby High (1999). Crosby does offer classes that are supported by local colleges. As far as safety in all my years of living in Crosby there have been no major safety issues. As far as parent involvement, most parents do have to work to support their families so they do as much as they can. If you want your child to attend a school where the teachers will go that extra mile to help in whatever way they can, this is it!

Safety a huge issue! No discipline policy severe enough to deter behavioral problems - lack of parental involvement. Not safe to ride buses home because of the children on them. Not enough variety of real world/college prep classes, no technical classes offered with assistance from local colleges. Poor school to attend - think twice before enrolling or moving to district. We learned too late.
