Crosstown High (XTH) will be a public school, serving 500 students in grades 9-12, opening August 2018. It will be located inside Crosstown Concourse, a landmark adaptive reuse development project in the city center. Crosstown High will prepare students for college, career, and life through personalized learning plans and project-based learning; exposure to a diverse community; and critical relationships with our community partners in Crosstown Concourse and beyond.

Our 2016 Essential Question:

How do we create a school in Memphis, TN, that prepares a uniquely diverse body of students for the world they will be entering, not the one in which we grew up?

Our Competencies and Strengths:

Our school will not open until August 2018, so those are still TBD!
