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.

The school community is great, and I've really enjoyed the interactions I've had here. I would like to see some improvement in the quality of the English department, as I feel like the advanced English classes allocate too little class time to process pieces. However, the CRHS science and math departments have been impressive, in my experience. It would also be nice to see a bit more concern and understanding from the registrars, counselors, and teachers regarding students' responsibilities and opinions, a currently there does not appear to be much effort given to really get to know the students.
Cinco prepares their students very well for college and helps them succeed in life if they choose to take the opportunities provided. However, the environment is extremely competitive and some of the teachers look down on students publicly who don't take advanced courses and sometimes don't explain subjects thoroughly enough. Advanced courses, for the most part, are stressful but do-able for the averagely intelligent teenager. They are tough on students for attendance and tardies. Although Cinco prepared me well for life after college, I can not say my experience at this school was above average.
