    Overall Experience: I am currently attending this school as a sophomore and so far the bast 1 1/2 years at this school have been pretty decent. You don't have to worry about whether you'll fit in or not because there's a social group for almost every type of person at this school. Teacher wise in my opinion we could do better. I've had a few bad teachers so far but the rest are amazing. Classes go by pretty fast so you need to pay attention and not distract yourself with your device or by talking to people around you. The lunches aren't all that great but lets be honest.. are there actually any high school's that serve 5 star meals? Cibola is one of the best high school's in Yuma. Most students averaging a 3.5 GPA or higher, and there are many sports to join here. Cibola is also one of the top high school's in Yuma when it comes to sports like Football, Soccer, and Volleyball.

    Overall Experience: I didn't really like Cibola but it wasn't the worst school it was a typical high school, The school was unique because of the students school spirit and confidence of being the "best public high school" in the county both academically and athletically. If I had to go back and choose a high school I would go back to Cibola because all of my friends were there and some teachers were nice and memorable.

    Overall Experience: My favorite thing about the school is the excellent FFA program. I may be slightly biased in this, considering I am the chapter president, but the chapter as a whole is outstanding. The members are committed and we strive for the best, thanks to the encouragement of our amazing advisor and Agriculture teacher.
