    Overall Experience: Most of the teachers at this school are amazing. They aren't too serious but they teach well so when you are in class you can have fun but still be able to learn.

    Overall Experience: I do like my school but there are some flaws to it. The school food is just terrible and makes me sick to my stomach, and the three lunch shifts makes it even worse. Some of the rules for students can be alit bit over bored, and i don't like it. I like rules but when your over doing it with the rules system that when i start getting mad. The education system that they have now is honestly ridiculous, my school was used a giney pigs to a new standardized test that no one else took and practically failed half of the sophomore class.

    Overall Experience: I love cypress creek high school, I started their my freshman year and I will graduate from there. Although I don't have many friends because I'm shy I love the people there, everyone is so sweet and the teachers are motivated to help you. Over all the school has amazing school spirt and they motivate each other to do better.

    Overall Experience: I really like Cypress. So many students, parents and just people that don't know anything about it assume that it's ghetto and a horrible school. I've had very many great experiences not with just students, but with staff as well. Yeah, there's some teachers and students that are annoying and i don't understand how they became a teacher or got that far in school but that's normal. I've enjoyed most of my teachers and courses and i could've graduated earlier if i wanted to. I honestly prefer Cypress over any other high school.
