Cheering All Students to Succeed
When you consider our tremendous educational programs and unwavering passion for maximizing each student’s potential, there’s no question one of your child’s biggest fans is Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District.
We’re here so that every one of our more than 116,500 students may succeed.
Why Choose CFISD?
At CFISD schools, children learn from top-quality educators in 91 of the most technologically advanced campuses in Texas. More importantly, our students have the chance to try new things, explore new interests and expand their horizons through a robust range of learning experiences and growth opportunities.
That’s what Opportunity for All is all about.
All You Want for Your Kids is in CFISD
From elementary field trips to the exciting new College Academy initiative, we’re fostering active student engagement in a hands-on learning environment.
Students in CFISD schools are encouraged to work collaboratively, develop problem-solving skills, and get a deeper understanding of how they will work in the real world. We prepare our students to be 21st-century learners so that they may become 21st-century leaders.
Do Your Homework
CFISD is open for all students who live within our district boundaries. And despite the perception that public schools suffer from larger classrooms, CFISD is proud to have an average 22:1 student to staff ratio. And let’s talk about graduation! Did you know that 93 percent of CFISD students graduate in four years? Many of our students are accepted to top-ranking colleges in Texas and across the nation. And last year alone, there were 71 Ivy League acceptances among our graduates.
Education That’s on the Money
We are staunchly committed to fiscal responsibility while providing an exceptional education and Opportunity for All! CFISD received the highest possible distinction in all six years of the Texas Comptroller’s Leadership Circle Awards for financial transparency.
After promising not to raise taxes, CFISD lowered the tax rate by 1 cent following
the 2014 Bond campaign. Our taxpayers also benefit from a 20-percent optional local homestead exemption that few districts in the Houston area offer.
Academics for All
At CFISD, we cheer our students to participate in a variety of academic, extracurricular and hands-on activities with many schools offering blended learning environments. Beginning in elementary school, students experience a more relaxed, self-paced atmosphere, with flexible seating in the classroom and an emphasis on technology. This atypical approach inspires students’ interests, while encouraging deeper study and exploration.
What’s more, CFISD puts great emphasis on the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and offers an exceptional array of opportunities, such as Robotics, Engineering Design, Forensics and Advanced Quantitative Reasoning.
For students who thrive on a more accelerated pace, our gifted and talented program provides the depth and academic complexity children need to further develop their talents and interests.
And that’s not all!
From the arts to agriculture and everything in between, your best choice for your child’s education is all right here in CFISD.
Other learning opportunities include:
- Dual High School/College Credit
- Computer Science
- Architectural Design
- Advanced Animal Science
- Digital Art & Media
- Foreign Languages
- …to name just a few!
Fine Arts for All!
Whether it’s band and orchestra, sculpture or photography, fine arts play a significant role in educational development. That’s why, beginning in the elementary years, the importance of artistic appreciation, literacy, and creativity is stressed throughout our schools. For those who wish to develop their connection to the arts further, students in middle and high school are able to pursue the many options in CFISD.
Athletics for All!
At CFISD we believe sports are one of the best and most effective ways kids can learn character-building life lessons, including sportsmanship, teamwork and pride.
From our physical education programs to our renowned organized team and individual sports, cheerleader and drill team programs, sports in CFISD schools are second to none. Just ask 2017 Class 6A Division II State Football Champs, the Cy-Fair Bobcats.
