Cypress Creek High School Reviews

My experience at Cypress Creek High School has been a rewarding journey filled with learning, creating, and a lot of changes. My school has undergone multiple modifications, which included a completely renovated campus. With this being said, many things still stayed the same. When I entered this school, there were murals depicting diversity and school pride. Although these originals works no longer reside at Cypress, another mural depicting life as a high school student has appeared. Accompanied with this statement piece are other student-created works such as poems and posters that are presented in the hallways. This atmosphere of integration and enthusiasm for academics has provided me a positive experience as well as an interesting walk to class. Student art is also showcased in the main office building, providing not only the students of Cypress Creek an amusing museum experience but also the community of parents, teachers, and educators that walk through our doors.
Review Cypress Creek High School
I'm not going to say i love school because nobody LOVES going to school but I do love this school. I love the spirit, the variety of clubs and classes. The diversity is A+. Some teachers are awesome kind and fun meanwhile some know nothing. Overall i love the school and the extra curriculares. Even the administration is cool!
Over the past four years here, I have come to learn that Cy Creek is a pretty special school. Our campus is filled with diverse students, all with different ideas, opinions, and backgrounds. Yet, we all possess a common drive for excellence and fierce school spirit that never ceases to amaze me!
