Visitors observed cosmetology, automotive, child guidance, Ready Set Teach, health science, robotics, JFROTC, and culinary. There were over 100 visitors on campus, which included state representative Tom Oliverson.

"I was absolutely thrilled to have our school selected to participate in School Priority Day," said Principal Dr. Cheryl Henry.  Thursday's visit will provide our community members and stakeholders the opportunity to see for themselves the great opportunities and options available at Cypress Springs."

Oliverson thanked Henry for inviting him in a tweet. “So many bright futures there because of your leadership and hard working staff members.”

On top of politicians, there were members from the community such as journalists, teachers, realtors, CFISD board members, church leaders, and more. Other schools across the district were toured as well, such as Cy Falls and Cy Lakes.

Visitors were welcomed with a song from Cy Springs band and cheer team. They were then welcomed with a speech from Henry and began their rotations through the building. Students from the endorsements also implemented skills learned in school to present to visitors.

"It is amazing how innovative our education system has become in 12 years since I was in high school," said AXA advisor/ guest Brian Eckhoff. "The only thing I saw that surpassed the technology was the excitement from the students to learn and the passion from the educators to see them succeed."
