Rewind for 8/29/15






June 2011

Welcome blue text alumni, teachers and staff of Will C. Crawford High School. You have landed on the OFFICIAL web site of the WILL C. CRAWFORD HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION located in San Diego, CA.

Crawford High School continues to build upon its great heritage with the support of parents, businesses, teachers and alumni.
This site is where you can reconnect with over 28,000 classmates, teachers and staff--those who graduated from Crawford, and those who may have moved but still shared classes, sports, clubs and memories with us, and your teachers and staff. Elementary school and junior high also. All are welcome to reunite here. 
So what is it that draws us together? It’s the memories of being together at the height of raging hormones, supreme daring, and ultimate idiocies when all things were possible and friendships were forever. It’s the experience of unforgettable times, for better or worse, that ended our teenage years and launched us into adulthood. We want you to feel welcome here, and we hope you'll share a bit of yourself with us, in this exclusive and private community.
