Crete-Monee High School is a secondary education facility located in Crete, Illinois, for teenagers in ninth through twelfth grade. Its current building was completed in 2007 at a cost of $60 million.[3] The old building, built in 1954, currently houses the Crete-Monee Sixth Grade Center on its main floor; the second story and bottom floor are no longer in use. Known colloquially as Crete, the school made headlines in 2002 when two girls were chosen as the year's Cutest Couple.[4]



The school hosts one of the longest running cross country invitationals in the state; the Crete-Monee Pow-Wow.[5] At one time, it was the nation's largest cross country invitational.[5]

In his senior season in 2011, Crete-Monee soccer forward Carlos Posada set a new IHSA career scoring record, finishing the season with 177 goals over four years. Posada broke the previous record of 159 goals set by Brother Rice's Billy Savarino.
