    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.

    Overall Experience: One thing I like about Cibola High School is its diversity; there are students of all kinds of backgrounds. Since there is a myriad of types of people, most are welcoming and do not exclude or bully others for being different.

    Food: The foods variety is average yet there a lot of snacks to chose from.
