Cypress Woods, announced in 2005 as Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District High School #8, is part of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. The school opened in the fall of 2006 due to rapid growth of CFISD.[2] The 504,626-square-foot (46,881.3 m2) campus was built at a cost of 50.9 million United States dollars[3][4] by Pepper-Lawson Incorporated on a 182-acre (0.74 km2) site. The campus was designed by PBK. CWHS relieved Cy-Fair High School and Cypress Falls High School.

The first graduating class was the Class of 2009. About 140 staff members (including 100 teachers) served about 2,100 students when Cypress Woods opened.

Future students chose Wildcat for the school mascot.[5] The board of trustees approved crimson and gold as the school colors.[6]
