My daughter started Cypress in preschool and is now in 1st grade there. We have had such an amazing 4 years at Cypress, I honestly don't have a single negative thing to say about the school. The entire staff is loving & warm, great educators, followers of Christ and truly care about these kids. We are

My younger son was enrolled in Cypress in 1st grade and has some learning issues. The school has been doing a program called reading recovery with him. He went from not knowing all of his letters at the beginning of his 1st grade year to reading 1 or 2 level books by Christmas. He also had some problems

We considered placing our older son there 3 years before, but chose to continue homeschooling him. The current principal has only been there for two years, but I think he has completely changed the atmosphere of the school from my perception of the school 3 years ago. He is working very hard to get the school up to date with technology, and he really cares about the students. We get an email at the beginning of every week from the teacher giving us the basic lesson plans for the week which I really like. I'm very happy with this school. Read less

The chapel experience sold me on this school. Now that we are there, my child learns about Jesus throughout the day, not just in Bible class. The teacher really cares about their students and you can see they want to help them grow. My biggest job as a parent is to prepare them for the world but not

Even though this school is attached to the church, the behavior of the administration is possibly the least professional and "Christian" I've ever witnessed. This type of behavior is typically reflected in the long term performance of the school. There is a revolving door of Secretaries/Administrators.

As a parent who has had children attend Cypress from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade, I am well satisfied with the academic and student atmosphere that Cypress has offered. My children have taken advanced placement classes in high school and are in the top 30 students in their classes. I also know
... Read more of many recent alumni who are doing exceedingly well in high school and beyond. Cypress has continually monitored their academics and adjusted accordingly in giving their students the best education possible. Although there has been administrator turnover in the past, the current administration is determined to make Cypress Christian a place where children can reach their learning peak. As I noted earlier, Cypress has improved their academic standards, but they are also improving their teaching standards. Part of improving Cypress involves, not only improving academics, but also improving the teaching of these academics. After careful evaluation, I was told that a couple of teaching positions would be changed to strengthen the teaching faculty. In a previous post it was noted that some staff were fired, this is not accurate. Some office staff did resign to pursue other things. Read less

Our daughter is currently in half-day Kindergarten at Cypress and she loves her teacher and classmates. We get e-mails almost daily with school updates and news. We can also log-on and see our child's progress online. I feel our daughter is getting better attention than she would in a public school,

I have two children currently in the Cypress Preschool Program and I'm enrolling my oldest in their 2012/13 Kindergarten class. If you're looking for a school and staff that not only teaches about God but truly exhibits an active faith in Him - this is the right place. The Preschool teachers, the Director

The teachers my kids have had in the 2 years we've been involved with Cypress truly love my kids - and my kids love them. They feel and respond to the honest affection, they're being introduced to their Lord in a genuine setting and they're thriving intellectually. The teachers at Cypress are highly skilled, patient, encouraging and perceptive - they have proactively communicated with us when there have been issues and worked with us (their parents) with full, honest disclosure and concern for the children in their care. I have NO doubt that the staff in their daycare and school programs are every bit as qualified, talented and caring as those we've worked with so far. I can't really "rate" the additional areas as I have no practical experience yet - but I have faith in them. Read less

My children have attended CCS for the past 6 years and have had wonderful experiences each year. My kids have enjoyed all their teachers, class projects, field trips, etc. I have a child entering the middle school this year & I am fully confident in the 6 - 8 teaching staff. Teachers of all grade

The new middle teachers they've hired, along with the one that stayed from last year are youthful, very capable, and seems to really know how to connect with the students on a personal level. Since Cypress only goes up to 8th, we gave our daughter the choice to transition to public now or in 9th, and she made it abundantly clear that she wanted to stay until the end. Read less
