Fairfield is a neighborhood located in Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (Cy-Fair ISD).
According to the state’s accountability system, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is the largest school district in Texas to have 100 percent of its eligible campuses earn Met Standard honors for the fourth consecutive year (2012–2013, 2013–2014, 2014-2015 and 2015- 2016 school years). The district is the third largest in Texas in student enrollment and trails only the Houston and Dallas school districts in the number of students it serves.
With almost 1,000 new students, enrollment in Cypress-Fairbanks reached nearly 115,000 on September 15, 2016—an indicator that the phenomenal growth trend in CFISD shows no signs of subsiding. Enrollment for the current school year is expected to climb and peak sometime during the second semester. The one-year enrollment record of 7,274 was set during the 2005-2006 school year.
The upward trend in student enrollment has remained constant since the early 1990s when USA Today named Cypress-Fairbanks ISD one of the fastest-growing school districts in the nation. CFISD now ranks as the 23rd largest school district in the United States.
In fact, district enrollment has increased by almost 23,000 students since 2006. The number of students included in this enrollment boom could be equated to the entire student population of the neighboring Klein or Conroe school districts. There are 186 square miles of land within the boundaries of CFISD. This suburban district has more than 875 subdivisions and apartment complexes within its borders.
Students benefit from a wide array of challenging academic and extra curricular activities and from a low overall student/teacher ratio. Fairfield has three elementary schools and a middle school right inside the community. A series of greenbelts allow kids to walk or ride their bikes to school. Currently, schools include either Ault Elementary, Keith Elementary, Swenke Elementary, Salyards Middle School and Cy-Ranch High School. Ault is known state-wide for its outstanding performance. Keith is located adjacent to the Fairfield Athletic Club and boasts a state-of-the-art-design. Swenke Elementary opened in August 2009 and has earned high rankings since opening.
