Cypress Springs High School, zoned to Miramesa, has leaped into the ranks of America’s top high schools according to a report published by U.S. News & World Report.
The Cypress high school earned a prestigious bronze medal on the magazine’s annual “America’s Best High Schools” list based on students’ commendable performances on state-mandated tests and higher than average graduation rate. Only the top 6,041 public high schools of the nation’s more than 22,000 public high schools are awarded medals.
Cypress Spring students routinely score above average on state tests and earned two distinctions — for Top 25 percent Progress and Top 25 Percent Closing Performance Gaps — last year. While only 28 percent of students take Advanced Placement exams, nearly half of them pass. The school also offers dual credit courses in conjunction with Lone Star College.
When not in the classroom, Cypress Springs Panthers excel in athletics programs such as football, basketball, swimming and track. They also have opportunities to join a number of clubs ranging from app development to robotics.
Cypress Springs High School is part of the award-winning Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. Younger Miramesa students attend Rennell Elementary School and Anthony Middle School.
Miramesa is located south of U.S. 290 on Fry Road in Cypress. In addition to access to great schools, the top-selling community features a recreation complex featuring a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse with exercise facilities and meeting space overlooking a resort-style pool as well as an exclusive technology package.
