About Cypress Ranch
About the School Trustees approved the construction contract for Cypress Ranch HS and Warner Elementary, to be located on the 130 acre multi-campus site at Fry Road and Cypress North Houston, to Pepper-Lawson Construction, L.P. in the amount of $68,673,095.00. The contract amount is $162,855.00 under budget. Cypress Ranch is a repeat design of Cypress–Woods High School with design modifications and is scheduled to open for the 2008-2009 school year. Since this campus is located on a multi-school site with Warner Elementary and a future middle school, the exterior design will be complimentary to the elementary school in terms of brick color and aesthetics. The colors for Cypress Ranch are navy and gold. School mascot will be decided by the students after attendance boundaries are determined. Cypress Lakes HS and Cypress Ranch HS were designed by PBK Architects, Inc. with modifications to existing plans used in the construction of Cypress Woods, Cypress Ridge and Cypress Springs high schools. Each new school will have a modified footprint which includes the relocation of the library above the main lobby. Both facilities will feature their own unique color scheme and front entry design. New mandates from the Texas Education Agency require additional square footage for the science labs and library from previous high school designs which are incorporated into the final designs. Cypress Ranch is expected to provide enrollment relief for Cypress Woods High School and other adjacent high schools to be determined. The Board approved the swimming pool option 2 for high schools #9 and #10 which consists of a six-lane, 25-yard practice pool constructed at Cypress Lakes and an eight-lane, 25-yard meet pool with a five-lane, warm-up pool area at Cypress Ranch. Constructing the meet pool allows CFISD to host larger swimming competitions such as district meets and tri and quad meets in which three or four teams compete. Currently, district swim meets are held outside Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. Campus Goals Demographics (as indicated in the 2008-09 AEIS Report) African American Hispanic White Native American Asian/ Pacific Islander Economically Disadvantaged 11.4% 14.4% 68.2% 0.5% 5.6% 7.9% Enrollment 1508 students as of 9/15/09 Class Ranking Beginning with courses taken between 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 teacher student assistant, local credit, and courses taken under the pass/fail option. High school credit courses taken by seventh- or eighth-grade students and completed by the end of the eighth-grade year will not count in class ranking with the exceptions of Geometry, Biology, and the third or higher levels of a foreign language. (*See additional exceptions for Classes of 2011 and beyond.) Rank will be determined by grade point averages (G.P.A.) of the students. Estimated class rankings are to be determined at the end of the junior year and first semester of the senior year for the express purpose of college entrance requirements. Another ranking shall be performed at the end of the fifth six-weeks 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 Grade points are allocated for a course of study based on the designation of the course as follows: GRADE LEVEL OR COURSE K, AP, and HORIZONS Levels L-Level (on level) Below Level Adaptive Behavior,Co-teach, ESOL, and Resource Life Skills A (90-100) 7 grade points 6 grade points 5 grade points 4 grade points B (80-89) 6 grade points 5 grade points 4 grade points 3 grade points C (75-79) 5 grade points 4 grade points 3 grade points 2 grade points D (70-74) 4 grade points 3 grade points 2 grade points 1 grade points F (below 70) 0 grade points 0 grade points 0 grade points 0 grade points The semester grades are computed by allocating a weight of 2/7 for each six weeks\' grade 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+). *Beginning with the Class of 2011, four mathematics and four science courses will be included in a student\'s GPA calculation. If a student takes Algebra I and/or IP&C in 8th grade and takes four math and/or four science courses in grades 9-12, the four math and/or science courses taken in high school will be included in the student\'s GPA. But, if a student takes Algebra I and/or IP&C in 8th grade and only takes three math and/or three science courses in grades 9-12, the Algebra I and/or IP&C course will be included in the student\'s GPA calculation. Algebra I and IP&C taken at any time will carry L-level grade points. Graduation Requirements for the Class of 2009 Students who entered the ninth grade in the fall 2004 through fall 2006 must enroll in courses necessary to complete the Recommended High School Program or the Distinguished Achievement Program unless the student, parent, and a school counselor agree that the student should be permitted to take courses under the Minimum High School Program.
