Cypress Elementary

The Cypress staff is committed to educating students to their potential and helping them on their way to becoming productive members of society. Cypress students will participate in a standards-based, comprehensive program that meets their individual needs in a positive, child-centered, cooperative environment fostered by parent involvement, a dedicated, caring staff and a supportive community.

Cypress students will become:

  • Self-actualized learners who have mastered a challenging, core curriculum and believe themselves to be capable, significant and able to mold their future as they reflect on their personal accomplishments and direct their own thinking.
  • Skillful communicators who are able to readily acquire and effectively express information, ideas, and emotions through reading, writing, speaking, listening and the use of technology.
  • Problem-solvers who are able to generate practical and innovative solutions to complex intellectual and social problems using critical and creative problems-solving skills.
  • Socially conscientious citizens, who are responsible for their own behaviors, are able to work collaboratively, and demonstrate honesty, empathy fairness, and respect for others as contributing citizens in their ever-enlarging world.
