Crosby Ironton

With preschool through sixth grade classes, it is our goal to nurture, direct and help each child reach his or her full potential. Enrollment at CRES is approximately 620 students with 100 staff members. The school is arranged in a "pod" system, with each pod housing a grade level and specialist classrooms. We have a library chock full of children's books, two full size gymnasiums, two computer labs, a "maker space" we call the Creative Cafe, a music room, a band room, an art room, a newly upgraded playground and most importantly a dedicated staff that cares for each and every child.

We encourage you to get involved and support our school's mission of fulfilling the promise of educating each child in a safe and nurturing environment. Contact the school office if you'd like to volunteer or schedule a tour of our wonderful school.

Letter from the Principal

Welcome to Cuyuna Range Elementary School.  At CRES, it is our distinct privilege to partner with parents and the community to offer our students an education focused on excellence.


CRES is a preschool through 6th grade school nestled in northeast Crosby, Minnesota, and we feature two gyms, multiple computer labs, a music room, a complete band room, an art room, and a fully stocked library.  We also have a newly-updated playground with a lot of room for children to have fun.

CRES offers many unique opportunities that allow our students to discover and develop their passion.  Our classroom teachers teach the general subjects, and we have specialists who teach music, band, physical education, and art.  We offer our students many opportunities to utilize technology in their education.  This includes the use of mobile laptop labs and iPad labs.  Each of our fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students is assigned an iPad that they use in school and at home during the school year. The staff at CRES is second to none.  We have a well-trained and caring staff that is focused on providing all of our students with a world-class education.   Everybody at CRES is dedicated to developing bright minds for a bright future in a safe and nurturing learning environment.  If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact any one of our staff members.
