    Overall Experience: My first two years at the school there was a lot of violence and fights that would break out all the time related to gangs. After we got a new principle things started to look better but you can still tell from the staff that they didn't care much about us only the money they were getting. And as a student-athlete I could also see that the athletic department wasn't getting the support it should've been getting.

    Overall Experience: Cypress Creek was okay I had great teachers but also terrible teachers. The students were horrible the upperclassmen bullied the underclassmen way too much. The bullying problem at Cypress needs to be dealt with
