Cypress Elementary School 5

Cypress is a hidden gem in Newbury Park! The teachers are truly amazing, there is a small family feel on campus, and the principal is outstanding. I could not be happier with our experience at this wonderful school and I feel VERY lucky to live in an area with a neighborhood school like this. The academics are exemplary, and equally as important, the teachers and staff truly care about the students. Cypress is the BEST!!!

The teachers we have had so far have been truly amazing in every way- caring, patient, kind, nurturing and have totally prepared our student for the next grade. We could not be more thrilled with the teachers at this school!

Amount of homework: Just right

There is a reasonable amount of homework each night, and is reinforcement of lessons taught at school that day- NOT busy work. There is no homework on the weekends.

The "Ability Awareness Week" that Cypress started really teaches and shows students how to be compassionate and empathetic, and to celebrate our differences and help each other whenever we can.

Cypress is a good school if your child has a good teacher. The principal is open only to certain parent's requests for particular teachers. I'm not sure why some parents get every request and others don't get any requests. Watch out if you ask that your child not be placed in a particular class, they do it anyways. There are some teachers that are not good.
