Cinco Ranch High School fostered a creative learning environment that encouraged students to work their very hardest. My high school experience here was incredibly enjoyable, and I made so many amazing friends, whom I will miss very much when we go our separate ways.. High school is always a stressful time marked by important decisions, but I have had so many great memories at Cinco. I loved all my teachers and the administration is awesome! My favorite experience from Cinco Ranch, is the time I spent on the Academic Decathlon team immediately after our qualification for the state competition for the first time in five years. The sense of community fostered in this school, especially, for me, in Academic Decathlon, is an incredibly memorable experience for me.

I really liked the variety of clubs and extracurriculars at cinco Ranch HIgh School. They offer oppurtunities such as scholarships, tournaments, and overall resume boosters. Along with this I like the student atmosphere more specifically, the lack of bullying. All in all Cinco is a great high school if you have a choice. The only thing I would change is the cleanliness of the classrooms and bathrooms. Throughout the year, multiple bathrooms would close and remain closed for long periods of time. This is partly because of water pipe malfunctions in the bathrooms and lack of service to fix these malfunctions. And if they weren't closed, they would be riddled with mold, liquids, and mysterious substances. Due to this, many students would get frustrated, so a change regarding these bathrooms would inprove the Cinco Ranch Highschool experience.
Cinco ranch High school is a place where everyone feels welcome and school spirit is encouraged! The teachers are very helpful and understanding however, some can connect better with students better than others. There is much diversity when it comes to the type of classes that you can take, which helps you figure out what you do and don't like. There is also a large amount of school pride and spirit when it comes to sports, the students usually have a spirit section at all the games. The pride that the students and faculty have for Cinco is outstanding compared to other high schools in the district. Overall Cinco has taught me a lot in many different aspects and I would highly recommend this school.
