The recent change in administration has dramatically changed the atmosphere of the school. The new rules, regulations, and expectations of the students has risen and the number of incidents (by which I mean in public altercations amongst students) has gone done as well. The academics are great. The extracurricular activities are great as well. The athletic programs and doing well and only getting better. The student atmosphere is one that enables oneself to be who they are and no matter what will always be able to find friends. in opposition to regional rumors, this school is far better than what is said. I definitely recommend this school to anyone who wants their kids to belong and find their calling.

I have two children at this school and hate to even step at this school. It's horrible to know you pay such high taxes and buy your house and know you have to deal with transfers and the fights in your play ground it has to do with allot of these parents not knowing what their child are doing after school. Until a kid that should be in school gets hurt then you'll have some crying parent with remarks that there child was good and never did any wrong but was breaking into working class people s homes. I hate Cy-Fair district we plan to sell about five more years because the schools are horrible. The admin act like they care but really don't you can tell by the tone of speech and posture. Yes change has come but when you have most of the kids that are tired of dealing with the trash at this school and parents that are tired as well take the chance that the new school is the same but at least you tired something new then to deal with the same excuses from the admin at this school. .

Loved Cysprings High School, especially all my AP class teachers, they were all amazing. If you go to this school make sure you do extracurricular activities and AP classes, that's where you find the best teachers. Best teacher goes to Mrs. Hartman or Mrs. Cantu, still can't decide but you both rock!

Have noticed the school is not responsive to parents. When a teacher or counselor is called they do not call back. Also they count the student absent when the student is present. I am from Missouri .. teachers know who are in their classes and are more responsive to parents.

I have found Cypress Springs to be a good school. I have been here for all three years and I am currently a junior. Although I cannot compare experiences at this school to those of another highschool, there isn't much I would complain about. The "problems" we have had in the past are fixed now I believe: our athletic coordinator has been replaced and our principle is retiring. Cy-Springs is what you make it, my GPA is higher than any of my friends from those "better" schools, and we came in 5th in district in academic UIL while Cy-Ranch placed next to last! Our ROTC, Panteras, boys basketball, and boys soccer team are pretty respectable, if not top in district. (I'm pretty sure our new athletic coordinator will improve our other sports.) The teachers in K-level and AP courses are very good and very qualified. However, there is lack of school spirit and patriotism in much of the ignorant (unfortunately, mostly On-level) students, and they are what makes our school look bad. If you're in mostly (not necessarily all) upper-level classes, you are better than fine. Cy-Springs really isn't that bad of a school. :)

I am currently enrolled in my second year at Cypress Springs as a Junior. For students that are willing to push themselves, this school is fantastic. The Advanced Placement teachers are thoughtful and intelligent; they are dedicated to their students' success. Of course, if a student does not push themselves, they will not have a good time. I've been enrolled in a few "On-Level" courses, mostly to fill requirements set by the district, and the experience is much less enjoyable. Students in On-Level (and I do not mean to offend or generalize, this is just my experience) are oftentimes loud and disrespectful to the point where teachers give up almost entirely. Walking in the hallways is a nightmare, as the school rather crowded. The administration often leaves a great deal to be desired. I recommend joining the debate team; we have a very strong program, with very talented individuals. This school is what you make of it. If you want to succeed, you will. If you do not, you will be left in the dust.

I have not enjoyed my daughter attending this school at all. Trying to talk to the administration or the teachers is a waste of time. They don't seem to care or want to work with you for the better of your child. I sat in the classroom and watched a teacher "teach." There wasn't really any instructions going on in the classroom. I asked several times for my child to be moved to a stronger math teacher and had no luck. The lady in charge of instruction only seems to care about herself and made no effort to monitor the type of instruction students are receiving. The administrators don't want to ruffle any feathers when it comes to their teachers and don't listen to the students or parents. Being an educator myself and in the administrative field it is disheartening that the employees of this school seem to care so little.

Often times I have complained about the truancy around the school and they told me that there was nothing they could do, yet there were officers posted in the school. Gangs are forming and this need to be addressed, other that that my son loves the school.

I have attended Cy-Springs my entire 4 years of high school. I am currently a senior and graduation is right around the corner. I am not anticipating it at all because I love Cy-Springs so much. Cy-Springs has taught me so much about growing to be a better and more respectful young lady of about myself. I never hesitate in the morning going to school because I know of all the great wondes that I will get once I get there. There's always aomething to do at the school. And as long as your someone popular, life is good. Even if your lame as hell, your still guaranteed to have a great time at Cy-Springs. It's such a great school!!!!!!

I am a sophomore at cy-springs soon to be a junior and honestly this school to me is great but that all depends upon the person. For me personally, I went to Langham Creek my freshman year and I didn't like it at all, there was to much drama and it was just completely boring. I am now currently at cy-springs and really like it. I like the diversity, I like that everyone associates with everyone, I love the people! I just really think it all depends upon the person because if your not getting caught up with the wrong crowd, your making good decision, setting a goal for youself and setting it high then you will like Cy-Springs. It's what you make it. Every school has it's flaws and cy-springs flaw is just the whole situation with fights which has gone down alottt compared to previous years.

cysprings was not really a good school while i was attending there. there were fights every single day at almost every single lunch but the students did not seem to mind the fights because they were being entertained.i attended cysprings back 04 my freshmen year and left the last month of my junior year and honestly i did not want to leave. i now attend cywoods high school down the road from cysprings. this school is just like the school off of high school musical, they even have the same mascot wildcats. i like the school , but there was something about cysprings that kept me interested. everyday in cysprings was different, and there were different races that attended the school.

My son has been in CySprings for almost 4 years and this has been a very bad experience. Teachers in there are very rude with students and I just had a teacher hanging the phone at me when I told her about her poor performance as a teacher. CySprings has a very low rating on TASK Test as well as one of the most populated schools as of last school year.

I have been going to Cy Springs for a year now and I am jr. I do not like it here at all. The rules here are ridiculous. You can't be an individual. The school like to change the rules as they go and kids get into trouble for the stupidest reasons. The reason why kids have no school spirit is because it is not a place we want to spend our time. It isn't fun and a majority of the staff is rude. The staff expects the kids to be 'proud, polite, prepared and positive' but they staff needs to set an example and do the same.

For the most part I like the school but the overcrowding makes it hard for studnets to standout and there is no school spirit. My daughter in going into 12th grade in the fall and does not want a class ring. In her three years we have had great teachers and not so great ones. The key is keeping in touch with the teachers and even doing a drive by if necessary. The staff is more than willing to let you come and sit in on classes. Key is to stay involved and go to the website for info on what's going on at the school.

There are fights almost everyday and the APs can't handle it. There is about 6 cops on campus now and its just a unsafe environment. APs worry about the image rather than the students and their high school experience. And there is very low parent involvement. No School Spirit

I agree with some people about the teachers not teaching our children or paying attention to them. There was a teacher my child felt was a waste of time, and when I went to speak to someone about the issue; well, I spoke to the wrong person obviously, because nothing was done about it. This year my child has great teachers and I appreciate all the teachers that try to teach our children. As for the school going down hill. I strongly believe that it has nothing to do with the staff at Cy-Springs, but with the parents and the children themselves making wrong choices. My child socializes with different groups at school, yet she is never influenced to skip school, do drugs, or get into fights. That is my child making a good choice, because that is what I taught her. Can't expect school teachers to teach everything.

I've had 1 son to graduate from CySprings and another son that is currently going to the 11th grade at CySprings and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tell everyone that CySprings has been great! They work with and for the children. I appreciate all of the hard work that they put into preparing for the TAKS test. My kids passed them with flying colors. I encourage the parents to get involved with the school because they are doing a wonderful job with our children. I wouldn't dream of moving or transferring my son to any other school in CFISD. He loves the sports, the academics and the teachers. The faculty and staff at CySprings deserve our support!

Cy-springs has a wonderful band, great extra curricular activities, some really spectacular teachers...However, with all of the emphasis on the taks test (which is quite stupid), and overcrowding, the brilliance of the students is dulled greatly. Move away from cy-springs so the people who want to learn can.

Ok, My daughter who is now a junior at Cy-Springs is doing very well in school. She is a member of the Panther Band and even with her busy schedule she does very well in her school work and keeping up with her grades. There is way too much emphasis on the TAKS test though. Why is it that when I ask my daughter as well as her friends simple history facts, they don't know the answer? But they can tell you how to read a paragraph and point out the key words. All in all, Cy-Springs is really over crowded but, they do graduate upcoming professionals and respectable citizens.

My teens have had some wonderful teachers here, but it does not make up for the teachers who don't teach, who don't care, and are hateful to the students. If they don't get it in class they just don't get it. Complaints by parents and students are ignored. I do not believe this school really has the students best interest in mind as demonstrated by offering contracts to teachers who are not doing their jobs. Run far, far away.

I thought high school was supposed to be fun and useful. No college preparation, no good study skills obtained, learning to dislike principles and teachers: that was my education at Cy-Springs. It's overcrowded, some teachers don't really care about their students, there is too much emphasis on state tests, and the staff could use some improvement. I spent most of my public school career working on TAAS and once I passed it in high school, it just seemed like they thought their job was done.

Too much emphasis placed on TAKS. Not enough emphasis put on teaching kids good study habits, and college preparation. In some instances rules are too lax, such as allowing kids to wear head phones in class. When asked about this rule it was explained that rather than argue with the students about headphone use they decided it wasn't worth the battle.

School has deteriorated quickly. Teacher turnover has been very high, and re-zoning has continually kept the discipline problem students in the school, while taking away the more academically gifted students. School has had 'gang' problems for the past year, which has left many students fearful. Overcrowding a problem, and looks to get worse. Principal very focused on appearances, but does little to address real problems. Communication with parents is almost non-existent. One of the lowest performing schools in the district - with TAKS scores falling dramatically over the last year. Below state average now.

I have had 2 kids here, I can see changes however, you and your student get as much out of it as you put in it. With the rapid growth I think the staff has put forth 110% in dealing with the growth. There are things that are overlooked or understaffed but it's up to us to help our school and our students. I am busy all the time with school related things and I am not in my child's face all the time. So much can be done with & without direct involvement. More help can be given that school is active every night and day. There are special events, trips and many unpaid hours for our teachers/staff yet they still care and are involved. Academic program has what your kids need if they want to grow and compete with others-Harvard-Yale- yes our kids can get there. Go Panthers!

I think CSHS is overall a good school but much too crowded and too many fights are allowed...the troublemakers should be kicked out for good so the kids that want to learn can without being afraid. my child is pushed and shoved and threatened every single day. I just tell her to look straight ahead and keep on walking. i have never had a problem with any teachers or administrators. something really needs to be done about the reckless driving and speeding around the school. the cops should stay there everyday instead of leaving 5 min before the final bell.

My son never had much trouble in school until attending Cy-Springs. Some teachers will not take extra time should a student ask a question. My son was told when he ask a teacher for a pencil that it was his problem not hers. This kind of teacher with this attitude shouldn't be teaching. And I have noticed once your child has had problems at this school they are a target. One teacher told my son, in front of the whole class, should he even need 1/10 of a point to pass she wouldn't help him. Is this really good teaching skills????

Having a child in need of special education services is difficult enough without subjecting parents, students, school staffers and independent health professionals to this kind of attitude. Education should entail what is in the best interests of the child, not what best boosts an administrator's ego and need for control, nor what makes their budget look best. Parents of special ed students, please, for your child's sake, look elsewhere. This school has a very big problem, and she has a name.
