Cypress Creek High School is located in south Orlando, Florida and serves students in grades 9 through 12.

Cypress Creek is an IB World School with an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.[1] As an IB World School, CCHS is a local magnet school allowing students from other Orange County, Florida schools to attend.[2]

Cypress Creek High School receives graduating students from Meadow Woods Middle School, South Creek Middle School and Walker Middle School. However, it is a magnet school, so students from surrounding middle schools (e.g. Chain of Lakes, Gotha) also attend Cypress Creek (albeit in smaller numbers).
