I have never loved a school as much as I love Cy-Creek. The teachers here are great and I never once felt like they didn't care about the subject they were teaching or about me. The people at Cy-Creek are very diverse and cannot be categorized into one clique. The food is subpar but all school food is. There's lots of extracurricular activities for people to join and lots of events going on throughout the year. Though our sports teams aren't that great, especially the boys, the school spirit at the games and rallies make up for it. I'm proud to go to this school and will happily brag about it to anyone that listens. Also shoutout to the best teacher at Cy-Creek, Mr. Miller for WHAP and AP Euro!
Review Cypress Creek High School
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.
I really enjoy attending Cypress Creek High School. The students there are very diverse and there are multiple clubs/extracurricular activities that are offered at Cypress Creek in which to connect with others and explore interests. The teachers, especially the upper level class teachers, are very diligent in their work and have high expectations of their students creating a pleasant learning environment. If there was something I would change at Cypress Creek, I would make the grade point average for AP classes higher than it is for upper level classes ("K" classes). Although K classes are at a higher standard and grade point average than regular L (on level) classes, I feel AP classes are even superior to K classes because they hold a different standard. I feel they are much more challenging and rigorous because AP level classes have the purpose of preparing students for college.
