About Our School

Mission Statement

. . . To educate children to their full individual potential in a warm and caring Christian environment.

The Cypress Seventh-day Adventist School family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.



The Cypress Seventh-day Adventist School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended.
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity.

The Cypress Seventh-day Adventist School operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.


Iowa Tests of Basic Skills

Each October Adventist schools in North America administer the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) to grades 3-8.  Class averages of composite scores (reading, language, math and information sources) are consistently in the top one-third of national percentile scores.  Cypress Adventist School class averages of composite percentile scores are historically in the top twenty-five percentile range.  For the 2011-2012 school year, four of Cypress School's six class averages of composite scores were above the ninetieth percentile (91, 94, 99, 96).  Cypress graduates are well-prepared for high school and college.  Many enter advanced placement classes.
