I absolutely love Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District! I have been in this district since I was in kindergarten I am a sophmofs at Bridgland High School. The exposure and experience from living within this community is honestly incomparable. The district is continuously evolving to a better community, it strives to meet the needs of parents and students, also teachers and by far some of the best. CFISD ensures that you're ready for the next level and they're willing to anything it takes to get you there. The schools are well developed with exclusive technology, staff is brilliant , and students are welcoming. Also the sports are something that can't be missed with great stadiums and players. I love CFISD.

Assisting Cy-Fair ISD wasn't only a grand experience in my life, it was THE first educational experience when I immigrated to the United States. O the hospitality by which I was received by my fellow classmates, teachers, and other staff members! If I'd have to mention what needs to be changed in the district I'd say nothing. It got every resource available for those who commend to seek a greater knowledge and expand their future. I mean, we got laptops available to our own use for free, books, a beautiful and comfortable library, clean cafeteria, clean and very handy classrooms. Cy-Fair ISD is a well-known district in Houston, Texas for how they prepare the scholars of tomorrow. Thank you CFISD for letting me grow, use and learn many new things in your facilities.
Cypress Fairbanks offers great tools for prospective students but the district has a horrible grading policy that deprives students of their potential. The students become more concerned about grades and are unable to discover and pursue their interests. Another thing Cypress Fairbanks should fix is their GPA grading system, AP level classes are obviously harder and should award higher points than a K/Pre-AP(as other districts call it). Furthermore, many classes that can become potential careers such as Health are misclassified as "On-Level" which affect student's GPA's no matter if they maintain an A within the class, basically punishing the student for pursuing their career. Lastly, Cypress Fairbanks are beginning to make students wear clear backpacks to "achieve student safety" but really is a major invasion of privacy.
