Cypress Springs High School was established in 1997, making it the sixth high school within Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District to open its doors to students in the Cypress and Katy areas. Since 2015, the school's principal has been Dr. Cheryl T. Henry. From 2012-2015, the school's principal was Mr. Travis Fanning and from 2008-2012, the school's principal was Mrs. Barbara Weiman, one of the former Associate Principal before her promotion to being Principal. Prior to Mrs. Weiman becoming principal, Mrs. Sarah Harty was principal, until she was chosen to be the first principal of nearby Cypress Lakes High School which opened in 2008. The very first principal to serve was Mr. Alan Meek, who helped establish the school in 1997.

History and background

The graduating class of 2008 was Cypress Springs' largest senior class with more than 1,000 students walking the stage at the Richard E. Berry Educational Support Center to receive their diplomas.

In the 2005-2006 school year, attendance at this high school reached more than 4,000 students due to the building boom taking place in the local area, making for a crowded school and crowded hallways.

In 2016 a wave of CFISD high school rezoning occurred. Cypress Park High School opened, taking a portion of the Cypress Springs zone. In addition another portion of the Cypress Springs zone was given to Cypress Lakes High School. In turn, a section of the Langham Creek High School attendance zone was reassigned to Cypress Springs.[2][3]
