    Extracurriculars: From my personal point-of-view, I've attended only one club, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), in my 4 years of High School. Clubs like Honor Society and other academically-based clubs last for a long time, while hobby-based clubs like the Anime Club slowly die out within a few years. So it's easy to see that Cypress Creek is academically orientated, and "fun-options" (except for sports) for extracurricular opportunity suffer from lack of commitment.

    Overall Experience: Looking back at my experience at High School , I had a good experience and I would choose this school again if I had to redo it all over again. I was a person that would avoid events like fights, pranks, and gossip around school, so the majority of my High School years consisted of school-work and video games. When stuff like (1) fires, (1) bomb, or (2) gun threats occurred I remained relatively unaffected and still went to school when others stayed home "for their safety". So the bottom-line is that if you don't get too involved into foolish stuff like fights, then this school reveals its very competitive side in academics.

    Teachers: From personal experience, I've had teachers that are a "4 out of 5" in terms of overall quality. Their teaching styles vary, mainly due to age and subject, which generally indicates their level of experience and friendliness with students. The main con for the majority of the teachers at Cypress Creek High School is the their grading policy. Most of the teachers are late inputting their grades online by a week or two; but the worst offenders don't input the grade for assignments online until near the end of the semester, which is a night mare for students aiming for that A.

    Health & Safety: We are sweeped and checked for drugs at least once a six weeks. They are very on top of safety of the staff and students.
