Cypress Woods High School is a secondary school located in Cypress, which is an unincorporated area of Harris County, Texas, near Houston.

The principal of Cypress Woods is Gary Kinninger. The school mascot is the Wildcats.[2]


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.[3] The 504,626-square-foot (46,881.3 m2) campus was built at a cost of 50.9 million United States dollars[4][5] 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.

The first group of students joined the administration in selecting the school's mascot, Wildcats, prior to the school's opening. The board of trustees approved crimson red and gold as the school's colors.[6]

In 2017, as part of high school rezoning, a portion of Cypress Woods's attendance zone will be reassigned to Cypress Ranch High School, and vice versa.[7][8]


The school shares a campus with Robison Elementary School and Spillane Middle School and Goodson Middle School; this campus takes up 182 acres (74 ha) of space.[9]
