School Notes

  • Crosswinds has served the East Metro since 2000 and is beginning a new chapter in its story with its management by the Perpich Center for Arts Education. We have always been an arts and science magnet school, and Perpich brings an energetic, research-based focus to those activities at Crosswinds. We also serve as a vital inter-district integration magnet school in the East Metro, creating a student body that reaches beyond simple diversity to develop friendships and a true respect for various cultures among our students.
