    Overall Experience: The students here have school pride for sure. The academics are great, and students will always support and compete academically, but the school spirit here is like no other.

    Overall Experience: Cy Creek is a good school, but it has faced some negative effects that were a result to zoning changes. There is a large contingency of kids who are problem starters at Creek.

    Overall Experience: Cypress Creek High School has impacted me in a great way. I really love how friendly the teachers are. They really try to help students out. I most enjoyed my life in the Choir program. Ms. Paul has taught me a lot of information about music and she has inspired me to continue making songs! Choir is my home away from home, and that is where most of my friends are. This school is unique because of its school spirit!!! The prep rallies in the morning were a great way to start of my day during Homecoming season!!! I would definitely choose this school again because it is very diverse in culture and I can fellowship and befriend so much amazing people!!!
