School Reviews

5  
6th.Grade was the first year that my daughter enjoyed and loved to go to school. Teachers really care about students and communication parent/teacher had been fantastic. Kids can choose different elective according to their interests. My daughter chose choir, drama and art, she had a blast. As much as they enjoyed their electives, academics are taken very seriously, and you had to maintain a good average to participate in all the extra activities. Students also can participate in all types of sports, there are try-outs for different disciplines through the year, plus your regular P.E. classes. The school is very well taken care off, the facilities and equipment they have is great. I really enjoyed my first year at Cypress!!
