Open Quote I was the first graduating class to spend the first four years in the new facility at Crosby High School,300 Pierpont RD in Waterbury Ct. The year was 1978 and my years at Crosby were awesome. We had our problems with marijuana and some other drugs, but nothing like today. Rock and Disco were going against each other with Bohimean Rhaphsody going head to head with Rock the Boat and the blue Jean era going against the Club dress. It was the time of sneaking into nightclubs on a Thursday and being too tired to concentrate the day after. The school play that year was TWO GENTLEMEN OF CORONA. It was a great time to be young and graduating into a brave New world, and Crosby H.S was in the center of our lives. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
