Crossland High School is a high school that is located in Plainview. It is where Greg's older brother, Rodrick attends as a junior.

It is the only known high school in the town that Greg lives in, as he has never referred to other high schools within his town. However, in the online book, Bishop Garrigan High School was located in Plainview.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid[]

Crossland opens up their haunted house which Greg and Rowley attends after years of hearing Rodrick's experiences. After admission, they were hit with multiple jumpscares before being chased around by the Chainsaw Alley guy. Although their experience was cut short by Greg's Mom, it gave them the inspiration to open up their own haunted house which Greg deems the interior superior.[1]

Bill Walter was shown to graduate Crossland in the year 2003, suggesting the movie takes place in 2021 given Bill's confirmation age of thirty-five.[2]


When Frank Heffley considers enrolling Greg into Bishop Garrigan High School, Greg says one of the reasons why he doesn't want to go is because it's all boys, unlike Crossland where Rodrick is said to be a junior. Later, Greg and Rowley went to their The Labyrinth, which was hosted by the Junior class. After a traumatic experience, Ann Heffley said she was going to write an angry letter to the school's principal.[3]

Eventually, Greg becomes the new goalie of the Red Socks. He sees this as a potential way to get out of going to Bishop Garrigan High School as Crossland has a soccer team in contrast to Bishop Garrigan.[4]
