Cy-Fair High School is a secondary school located in Cypress, which is an unincorporated place in Harris County, Texas, near Houston. The school is located along U.S. Highway 290 and is part of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. Cy-Fair High School is the only CFISD high school with a hyphen in its official name.[3]

History[edit]

In 1884, a school named "Big Cypress Schoolhouse, No. 2. Dist. 6," also known as the "Cypress School," was built. [4] This school was a one room school. Eventually, elementary and high school students who went to this school were provided with separate facilities. Once this happened, Big Cypress School House was renamed Lamkin Elementary School. [5]

Rural High School No. 5, built in 1937,[6] was part of the Fairbanks School District.[1] The Cypress and Fairbanks school districts consolidated in 1939.[4] Rural High School No. 5 continued to serve as the district's high school until Cy-Fair High School was opened in the spring of 1942.[1] Following court-ordered desegregation, the Carverdale school for African-American students was closed on August 3, 1970, and high school students were transferred to Cy-Fair High School.[4][7]

In 2000-01, the school was renovated and expanded, adding 20 classrooms and a new library.[8]

In 2017, as part of high school rezoning, a portion of Cy-Fair's attendance zone was to be reassigned to Cypress Ranch High School.[9][10]

In August of 2017, the school was flooded as a result of Hurricane Harvey. The school, as well as all the schools in the Cypress Fairbanks District, postponed the first day of school for 2017-2018 for two weeks before reopening on September 11, 2017.[11][12][13]

From September 8 to December 7, 2020, the total number of newly reported COVID-19 cases in Cy-Fair High School was 52, and 43 of those cases were students.[14]

From January 11th to January 17th, 2021, 18 COVID-19 cases were reported. As of July 7th, 2021, a total of 119 students and 26 staff members were reported to have gotten COVID-19. [15]

On May of 2021, to combat COVID-19, Pfizer shots were brought to the school, because the Cy-Fair ISD district partnered with Harris County Public Health to have vaccines available on all 12 high school campuses in the district. [16]

Academics[edit]

For the 2018-2019 school year, the school received an A grade from the Texas Education Agency, with an overall score of 90 out of 100. The school received a B grade in two domains, School Progress (score of 87) and Closing the Gaps (score of 85), and an A grade in Student Achievement (score of 92). The school received one of the seven possible distinction designations for Top 25%: Comparative Academic Growth.[17]

Athletics[edit]

Cy-Fair competes athletically in District 17-6A of the University Interscholastic League.[18]

Football[edit]

The 1985 football team finished with a 13-1-1 record, losing to perennial power Permian High School 7-10 in the state semifinals.[19]

In 2017, the football team went undefeated and won the 6A Division 2 State Championship against Midway High School.[20]

Basketball[edit]

The 1969-70 boy's basketball team advanced to the 3A state championship game, losing in the final.[21] In the 1970-71 season, the team won the 4A state championship,[22] and were given the honorific title of "National Champions."[23] The team advanced to the 4A state semifinals in the 1977-78 season.[24]

The girl's basketball team won the 5A state championship in the 2007-08 season, defeating DeSoto High School in the final.[25] The team won another 5A state championship in the 2009-10 season.[26]

Volleyball[edit]

The 1986-87 girl's volleyball team were the 5A state champions, defeating Amarillo High School in the final.[27]
