    I personally went to this school my sister went to this school and my niece is going to this school the staff is very friendly and the teachers work very hard to educate each student. This school has been in this community a very long time and has gone thru drastic changes and overcome many obstacles. The teachers are so kind and attentive to the students. Through the years of watching this school grow I would highly recommend it to any parent. This school provides the attention a child needs.

    I don't think that this school is great. I have always to go over there to find out what was going on with my son for my the teacher Mc Klusky of kingergarden is the worst teacher that my son have she is really a sarcastic person The Staff is the worst they need good person there it is so sad to see how much that school have change in least the 1 year. At lest the principal Mrs. Dr. Brown tries to help everyone and there secretary Mrs. Olga she is one of the few goodones in that school.. I change my son to another school and he is know wayyy better than before in Cypress Park elementary. I hope this help for you

    The teachers really care for the students at cypress Park Elem.Music arts and sports programs are great.The one downfall is that there is not an after school program for the children other then the one they have to walk 1 mile to.My son loves it here though.

    On my first visit to Cypress Park Elementary I had mixed emotions. The school is situated among trailer homes and I was worried that the school would not be as challenging or safe as a parent would expect. However Cypress Park Elementary is a good school. My son is now in 3rd grade and has been definately challenged this year. I will note that I was disappointed with 2nd grade. The teachers were laid back and he breezed through. For example he had the same homework assignment every night from the start of the school year to Christmas break -- write 2 sentences. After the Christmas break that was changed to writing 3 sentences every night for homework. Even after I spoke to the teacher the homework assignment didn't change. In 3rd grade homework varies and he sometimes has science math reading. He actually has to think now.
