I love the extracurricular activities in Cinco! Although, that is the case because I was in band. I know a lot of my friends who didn't enjoy their time in orchestra and ended up quitting in one or two years. Some clubs here are well-established, and that's wonderful. One of the wonderful things about the extracurricular activities here in CRHS, is that some clubs like robotics or FBLA have a strong foundation. That allows students to fully experience how that club operates and the learn the skill that club is trying to spread. There are actually many clubs like that, there is a small bunch where it's difficult to get to that level. Not because of how long the club has been established, but because of teacher cooperation. There are some tiny problems but, again, overall it was great!
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.
Great school, lots of academic opportunities and extracurriculars. Only complaint is because it is such a large school it is easy to feel lost in the crowd. But unlike some other Katy schools, Cinco is very diverse and it's easy to find friends who share your common interests and ideals. Go Cougars!
