I really enjoy going to Cypress High School! I've been to pep-rallies along with sports games and parents are very supportive in both their children's education as well as their physical and mental appearance. Students in Cypress High School are very energetic and involved with lots of the events at school. In my opinion this school is unique because of the staff. Teachers are very helpful with their students education. On January 1, 2015, I had the honor of attending the Tournament of Roses and the Rose Parade with my band. We worked extremely hard to perform to the best of our limit. Overall my experience of attending Cypress High School is a blessing and I'm extremely thankful to my parents for bringing me to such a wonderful school.

Being a sophomore at Cypress High School has already taught me much. My first year there I didn't know anyone but I quickly made friends with the friendly students of Cypress High. The teachers at Cypress are super friendly, they create a learning environment an enjoyable place to be. In the beginning of sophomore year AP teachers expose you experience a college environment which helps prepare us to be ready in the future.Being an athlete at Cypress High has taught me many things, some of them being sportsmanship, leadership skills, as well as teamwork. My overall review of Cypress High School is that it's an enjoyable and pleasant place to learn in.

In all honesty I truly believe that Cypress High School has the best quality of teachers and staff. They all work hard together for the benefit of the students learning and future. Every teacher at Cypress High school has their own style of teaching for example visual learning, social learning, verbal learning, or hands on learning all these styles of learning and teaching helping us as students to have the best learning experience possible. The teachers at Cypress are full of knowledge and demonstrate/share their knowledge with the class everyday each having their own different knowledge gives the students a variety of subjects to learn. A statement that is true is that the teachers at Cypress High take full interest and time for their students 100% each teacher devotes their time and interest into each student there even is a 15 minute class called "Check and Connect" that is used to talk to the teacher about questions and struggles the students might have it is very helpful. Communication skills is key In an education environment and the teachers try their best to communicate with the students personally or through e-mail. The consistency of grading could be better it is understandable that teachers may fall behind in their grading because they have multiple classes but it is also their job to get grading done as best they can with the help of the teacher assistants. Overall Cypress High Schools quality of teachers and staff is the best.
