Soaring to Great Heights!
An "A" School!
For 15 consecutive years, Cypress Ridge earned an "A" grade from the Florida Department of Education. Factors contributing to this award include the high number of students scoring at grade level and above on the FCAT, and the number of students making adequate yearly progress. In 2015 - 16, we missed earning an "A" by one point, despite earning the top scores overall in Lake County in Reading, Math, and Science.
Our students and faculty were committed to regaining "A" school status. We are very proud of our students and of the teamwork of our teachers, administrators, staff, and parents, as it was announced in the summer of 2018 that Cypress Ridge is again an "A" school!Five Star School Award 2019
