The teachers at my school are ''ok''. I am new to the system and on my first day of school some of my teachers didn't even ask my name, only one was interested in knowing my name. To this day some teachers still don't know my name and my second semester with them just started! The teaching style at the school is listen, then work on your own and if you have a question some teachers have the answers and some don't. In finals week my teacher handed out a study guide, with the need to know for the final. But when the test was handed to him, the test had more information then the studied in the whole semester. He stated to the class that he simply didn't have time to review the test before hand and compare it to the review. Us, the students, were greatly disappointed with this teacher and especially the way he stated the said before. It made me ask myself if his purpose in life is to be a great teacher, who students remember later on in life or one of those teachers that slack off and take their jobs and the system for granted.

I've been at Cy Creek for 2 years and I absolutely love it. They literally have something for everyone. I love that they make the sporting events such a big deal and the school spirit during the morning pep rallies is through the roof! Also they have some of the best teachers you'd ever meet. My US History teacher Ms. Cassidy is the BEST history teacher I've ever had. History was never one of my favorite subjects but after meeting Ms. Cassidy that changed. Going to her class is exciting because she ties history to things going on in the world today. Even on test day I'm excited to go to her class. Her upbeat personality and her eagerness to teach has definitely changed my outlook on history. I love that she keeps it real. There are other teachers that I could go on about but I would like to take a moment and thank Cy Creek. At first the big school was a bit overwhelming but if I had to do high school over again I'd definitely do it here.

Some clubs, such as Science Olympiad, rock! So many teachers help out to give their students the help they need when it comes to their projects. Although, the prestigious clubs such as NHS and Student Council don't do a lot to benefit the school and the students. Being in either of those clubs is just a title, not an honor as every one expects.
