Cypress Park High School

Last updated: November 30, 2017

About the School

The Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Board of Trustees approved the administration’s recommendation to name High School No. 11 Cypress Park High School during the regularly scheduled meeting on Aug. 10, 2015.

Like other CFISD high schools that are named after geographic landmarks throughout the district, Cypress Park High School was named in recognition of the nearby Texas State Highway 99, also known as the Grand Parkway.

The school will serve approximately 3,000 students and feature a three-story academic wing, community building for fine arts and indoor athletics, dining facility and central utility plant building. It will be part of a multi-campus educational village, with a middle school and elementary school planned for the future.

Class Ranking

Beginning with courses taken between the eighth and ninth grade, all high school courses, including correspondence, night school, college courses taken for dual credit, credit-by-exam, and summer school, are averaged in the class rank with the exception of student assistance, local credit, and courses taken under the pass/fail option. High school courses taken by seventh or eighth-grade students and completed by the end of the eighth-grade year will not count in class rank with the exceptions of Geometry, Biology, and the third or higher levels of a foreign language. Rank will be determined by grade point averages (G.P.A.) of the students.  G.P.A. and class rank are calculated in the fall after students complete the ninth and tenth grades.  Estimated class rankings are determined at the end of the junior year and the first semester of the senior year for the express purpose of college entrance requirements. Another ranking is performed at the end of the fifth grading period to identify summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude graduates. No valedictorian or salutatorian will be officially recognized at graduation.

Honor Graduate Designation

At graduation ceremonies, graduates will be recognized in the following categories: summa cum laude (6.5 G.P.A.), magna cum laude (6.25 G.P.A.), and cum laude (6.0 G.P.A.). A final calculation of G.P.A. and class rank is determined at the end of the senior year and will be reflected on the final transcript which is sent to colleges.

Grading Scale

CFISD uses a weighted 6.0 grading scale.  Grade points are allocated for a course of study based on the designation of the course as indicated in the chart below.

The semester grades are computed by allocating a weight of 2/7 for each grading period average and 1/7 for a semester exam. A student will receive credit for each semester passed.  If the course is a two-semester sequence and the student passes the second semester after having failed the first, he/she may receive the credit for both semesters if the yearly average is passing (70+).

Four mathematics and four science courses will be included in a student’s GPA calculation.  If a student takes Algebra I in 8th-grade and takes four math courses in grades 9-12, the four math courses taken in high school will be included in the student’s GPA. But, if a student takes Algebra I in 8th-grade and only takes three math courses in grades 9-12, the Algebra I course will be included in the student’s GPA calculation. Algebra I taken at any time will carry L-level grade points.
