At Cross, the community is very diverse and there is so much that a student could get involved from. The school isn't just centered on athletics although it offers a variety of sports to participate in but also is good within the arts providing such programs as the school musical or dance team. There is also a friendly communication between the students and teachers and often students interact with the principal as an authoritative figure but also as a friend. There's is a variety of AP classes for students to take advantage of and the guidance counselors are very much on top of the students regardless if they are planning to attend college or not.

I stayed at Wilbur Cross High school for the 4 years of my high school career.It was a great experience, every year was something great In Wilbur cross, there's so many sports to play in, which is either spring or fall sports, everyone and anyone can join and be competitive and passionate about the sport they play in. Although they have many sport programs, there's many other activates to do, such as music programs, Dance programs, art programs, acting, drama, etc, many clubs for different people. Our school has a college and career center where our guidance counselors help us out with college applications, our college essays, help us out with FAFSA and much more. Our school has the most honors, and AP classes in our city, a lot of classes from physics, to web design, to computer science, to auto shops, culinary etc . " Cross Pride".

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.
