    Overall Experience: When I first went to Cyprus I really didn't want to go there, I wanted to go to Hunter but since I didn't have a ride to Hunter I had no choice but to got to Cyprus. I'm really glad I did. I made lots of great friend and had a lots of teachers I loved. There were a few thing I didn't like but other than that it's a great school.

    Overall Experience: The tennis courts were bad all four years I played and the only sport that had funding was wrestling. We were in the hardest sports district in Utah when we are selves were never very good at anything but wrestling. The teachers and staff never really pushed us. I remember the senior orientation was please come to class and we will graduate you. I just wasnt impressed with what was offered. There were good people there though.

    Academics: I don't feel like we have enough academics, they should provide more options for us. We get a lot of work thrown at us the first 2 weeks of school which is like a slap in the face for the sophmores who have no idea how high school even works yet.
