Attending Cinco Ranch High School is something I am proud of. The school had great school pride, a great location, and what I feel like were high standards academic-wise. Many other schools in this district were known for one thing or another (academics, a certain sport, a certain social class), but I feel like Cinco Ranch had a healthy balance of all these things. The school had many organizations and encouraged school spirit through pep rallies and theme days. I do feel, however, that the faculty varied too much on what they valued. Some staff were very kind and encouraging, some were strict and harsh. Some were avid rule followers, some made up their own rules. I believe that this difference allowed some students to have very different high school experiences, which is very unfortunate. Overall, I am glad to have been a part of a school that prepared me for college, both academically and socially.
