As the third-largest school district in Texas and the largest employer in Northwest Harris County, Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District impacts the lives of far more than the 115,000 students and thousands of teachers, employees and administrators across 88 elementary, middle and high school campuses and special program facilities that study and work within our walls. In fact, we’re proud that as a top-rated school district, the work we do within our school system extends beyond the schools and permeates within our neighborhoods and businesses, making the greater Cypress-Fairbanks community a better place to work, live, study and play. The Cypress-Fairbanks community excels because of our CFISD cheerleaders; the individuals and businesses that invest in and support our students and community at large.
Today, we highlight Keith Barber, CEO of Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital and senior vice president of Houston Methodist.
Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital
Why are you so passionate about being a part of the Cypress-Fairbanks community?
Cypress-Fairbanks is home to one of our emergency care centers and the Houston Methodist Primary Care Group practice on State Hwy. 290. Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is committed to faithfully serving the health care needs of residents in this area and I personally see myself as a part of the Cy-Fair community.
How has Cypress-Fairbanks ISD impacted you, your family or your business?
CFISD is a rapidly growing school district with a long history of pursuing academic excellence. The district is not only a prized member of the immediate Cypress-Fairbanks community, but a contributor to the progress and success of the greater Northwest Houston community. Thanks to the publicity opportunities available in CFISD, our organization regularly places advertisements and other informational materials in the district’s newsletters and through other promotional avenues.

What’s your favorite thing to do, see, eat or experience in our community?
