    Crossland High School offers highly rigorous courses and a college going atmosphere. In 2011 we were recognized by the United States Department of Education (U.S.D.E.) in an electronic documentary known as “Doing What Works.” The USDE used Crossland as a model for the rest of the nation on what it takes to prepare students for college. 2011 was also the year in which over 70 educators from Delaware (including superintendents & principals) visited Crossland to see best practices in action as part of the Department of Education’s Race to the Top Program. Crossland has been featured in Forbes Magazine and the Harvard Business review for boosting academic scores and launching students to college and career success.
