Cypress Lakes High School is a secondary school located in Katy, which is an unincorporated place in Harris County, Texas, near Houston. Cypress Lakes, originally named Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District High School #10, is part of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District and serves students in grades 9-12. It was built along with Cypress Ranch High School and opened in fall 2008. Cypress Lakes relieve the population of Cypress Falls High School, Cypress Springs High School, and Langham Creek High School.[2]

History[edit]

The district selected PBK Architects as the designer of the new school which uses similar blueprints to the existing Cypress Ridge, Cypress Springs, and Cypress Woods schools, following the design of a mall, that being of one main hallway becoming split into sub-hallways into the rooms. Originally the school was scheduled to open in fall 2009. The rapid growth in CFISD prompted the district to schedule the opening of the school in fall 2008. The first graduating class was the Class of 2011.

The School's first (and current) Principal, Sarah Harty, was a former Principal of Cypress Springs High School; she moved from Cy Springs to Cy Lakes upon the opening of the latter.[3]

On March 28, 2014, former Houston Rockets and current Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard visited the students at Cypress Lakes High School for winning the "Block Out Violence" program.[4]

In 2016 Cypress Park High School opened, taking territory from the attendance zone of Cypress Lakes. In turn Cypress Lakes's attendance boundary took an area formerly in the boundary of Cypress Springs High School.[5][6]
