It doesn't do better than all districts. At least not Katy I.S.D.

What are the high schools like? and what zip code(s) would I type in to look at some homes.? thanks

Recommend Cy-Fair, Cy-Creek and Cy-Woods. The new Cy-Ranch HS which opens in 2008 will be solid as well. Other good choices, but these are the schools and areas I'm most familiar with.

Here are the zip codes for these areas:

77429 and 77433 are the main "Cypress, TX" zip codes (Cy-Fair, Cy-Woods HS)

77070 for Lakewood Forest Area (Cy-Creek, Cy-Fair HS)

77069 for Champions area (Cy-Creek HS)

Cy-Fair was rated ahead of Katy ISD for years up until last year, these two districts flip flop between being the best district in Greater Houston all the time (with FBISD occasionally in the mix as well). Keep in mind the district is growing at a rate of about 5,000-7,000 new students per year which presents quite a challenge for any district. This has long been one of the top-rated districts in Greater Houston. I expect them to be back up at the top again.

I dont know what the area around Bridgeland is, but I went thru Bridgeland today, and its coming along very nice. I turned into development off Fry Rd and like a commercial, geese were landing at a lake and some kids and parents fishing on the other side! I was impressed...I do not know the zip code their. I went thru House Hahl Road all the way out to Katy Hockley, its going to be a huge property when its all said and done. Must see, out there.

Mr. Football probably knows, but I see the three schools (elementary, middle and high school) being constructed on Fry Road, and the Cy-Fair ISD school board just bought another piece of property inside the development for another elementary school in a few years.

Yes, that whole area is 'En Fuego' at the $250K on up price point.

Cy-Fair is planning 2 new HS right now. Not sure where they'll go. I can only assume that one will be in either Bridgeland or Fairfield (even though they're already building one outside of Bridgeland - Cypress Ranch). There are currently 8 Cy-Fair ISD High Schools with 2 more slated to open next year and another 2 that will be built within 4 years - bringing the total to 12 in the short-term.

Default open concept not for my kid

This is why we never even considered Cypress.. The "open concept" would have been a disaster for my daughter... A child has to have a great attention span to learn in that type of learning enviroment. The next county over where we live now, the elementary schools have "open concept" and for the most part I have heard horror stories.. Most people I know from that county have pulled there kids out and put them in private school!

Cy-Fair is so big! Have they ever thought up splitting up the district? I have never seen a suburban school district so big.

Why would they split the district? I think the projections show build-out at around 125,000-135,000 students. With all the complications of splitting a special district (ISD), it will never happen (its easier to consolidate ie: Cypress and Fairbanks)...the area has grown into one community "Cy-Fair".

But it is a suburban school district. I am not the first to think of doing this to Cy-Fair. I saw the proposal somewhere else. If not splitting it up, they should divide it into two different parts, but still have it under one district.
