    Overall Experience: Most of the teachers do an outstanding job. You can really tell that they're passionate about the subject they teach and are willing to make time with you to teach you things you didn't understand during class one on one before or after school. I'm lucky to have gotten all the passionate teachers during my stay in Cypress High.

    Overall Experience: This school over the past 4 years i thought were boring and pointless. Now i reminisce in solitude thinking about what i could have done more and I wish i can go back. This school is a school that you can actually call home and miss it so much. The students, staff and volunteers are surely amazing. Cypress is a school that will make sure that you will never walk alone.

    Overall Experience: A great school with supportive teachers. AP students and regular students highly segregated. Need more supportive programs in the arts and STEM. Overall great and memorable experience.
