I like how it’s small enough to be considered a family environment, but big enough to meet new people from all over. Air conditioning would be nice and we have trailers for classrooms. :/ Also a real track and football field would be great things to add!

I wouldn't have rathered attending high school anywhere else. Faculty and students are immensely kind and want you to succeed. Holy Cross offers many service oppotrunities and an excellent focus on academics and extracurriculars, pushing students to find themselves.
Holy Cross High School continually impacts my life as a current Junior. While the facilities are somewhat lacking and communication between the school and the students requires improvement, Holy Cross fosters an environment of challenging academia, lively debate, and--most importantly--family. However, this inevitably creates stress that takes a toll on both students and parents. As a whole, teachers need to recognize this and, thus, become open to the suggestions and grievances of the student body.
