I have a 1rst grader that attends this school. Yes, it's not perfect, but no school is. He is excelling quite nicely, and we love both the kindergarten teacher he had and his current teacher. He's held accountable for his behavior, and when there has been problems with other kids, both the teachers and the principle have worked with us to address them properly. I was anxious about having my son attend this school originally, but I am now glad we decided to proceed with this vs private school.

I give it 2 stars because of the good teachers and I took 3 stars off because my son has a bullying problem at my school and they won't do anything about it my some is in the 1st grade and gets kicked in the head , made fun of and cursed at!! My son is learning bad words at school , I buy him nice books and good quality school supplies and the other kids take it away from him I had to stop packing his lunch because he wasn't able to eat his food without kids harassing him , of and the part the principle doesn't care oh boys will be boys what can I do, and he even avoided us until the scho was about to close at 4 O'clock waited an hour and he comes out holding around like oh time fore me to go I wanted to smack him upside the head what a horrible staff, they should be ashamed to call that a learning environment!!

I have 3 children attending Cypress Creek and they love it, this year better than last year. Mr. and Mrs. Denny (4th Grade) are great!!! A previously mentioned 2nd Grade teacher is no longer there, that I wasn't a big fan of. I'm in the military and moved A LOT!!! We've seen some bad schools, Cypress Creek is not one of them. It's diverse, but the teachers and principal seem to care about the kids.

My kids hate this school. The cafeteria staff is rude, the principal does not care of the students. The carloop is always a mess and the teacher That escort the student they just come to meet Their coworkers to chit chat, all the times my kids get inside the car and they dont even notice They left already. They dont have any kind of sport or anything to get the kids Involved aside the classes regularly. Excluding two or three others are incompetent teachers. Dont bring your kids to this school.

My main concern about Cypress Creek Elementary is that they do no celebrate black history month. It is only celebrated by the individual teacher. I feel since there are other minority children that attend the school, those of African American Descent should feel a sense of pride and joy when the school show spirit in celebrating their culture. When it is cinco de mayo the entire school is decorated.

My children come home crying every day. They don't like this school and tell me about kids picking on them at school. Teachers seem to think it's boys being boys, but I don't think my children should come home with black eyes. The school has also told us that there isn't much homework given because all the children don't speak English well and they have other responsibilities at home. Our children will be taken out of this school at the end of the year.

My child is in Ms. Shoop's class this year and we have had the worst nightmare dealing with this teacher. Our child comes home with horror stories of this teacher and how she treats the students. Very disrespectful and rude!!!!! Everyday she writes negative things in my childs agenda nothing nice.

My daughter has been going to Cypress Creek Elementary the past 3 years. This year I have noticed quite a difference in her accadmic progress. She has made honor roll the past 3 grading periods. Her second grade teacher was great. I just hope this continues. So far I have been very pleased.

First, Principle Aiken is great. He sets the tone for the entire school and nows every parent and child by name. This is the best elementary school I have ever seen. My children's grandmother works there now in the lunchroom and she could not be more pleased either. When we moved to Ruskin from Apollo Beach, my one son was doing horribly at the elementary school in Apollo Beach. As soon as he began at Cypress Creek, the one teacher helped him and he started liking school again...as he went up in grade level, the teacher moved up. My youngest is currently attending there and is also doing very well. I wish more teachers at more schools would stay with their class as they move up in class level.

Cypress Creek Elementary is a wonderful school, led by a dedicated and caring staff. Mr. Eakins has done wonders for this school and it shows in the way the students perform and behave. As a parent I am happy to have my children attend this school. Thanks to all the wonderful people that work so hard for our children.
