Wilbur Cross gets a bad reputation, but in all honesty is a great school. Cross offers AP courses, honors, and standard courses. We have some of the best AP teachers and teachers around. Our sports and school spirit are also nothing to compare to.

WIlbur Cross high school is the under-dog. With the most AP classes, and the highest rate of students not being able to read at a high school level its a hard balance. You can meet students that transferred from the most prestige private schools, and a student who family's just came to the U.S.A as refugees. You can meet student who break down the most complex forms of shake spear and hamlet, and students who can not speak a word of English but has 3 other languages in their pockets. Wilbur Cross is a meeting ground to so many different people and even with being the underdog, Wilbur Cross always finds that balance.

Although the parents and teachers are very involved in school events, they are very student oriented. During every event, the students are completely involved and work together to make the greatest experiences. There are dances, fundraisers, plays and even sporting events that the students take charge of by bringing everyone together with school spirit.
