    Teachers: The teachers that I have dealt with were very interested in my education and always helped students strive to achieve and graduate. College was always encouraged as a goal and the teachers helped student to apply and move forward after graduation. Teachers are knowledgeable on their subjects.

    Health & Safety: Cyprus High does not worry too much about any dangerous that threaten the school. Cyprus has not had many dangers happen to this school. This is why Cyprus doesn't have high security. Although, this would be helpful if it was implemented.

    Overall Experience: Most of the parents we have at our school tend to be involved if their children themselves are involved. I think that the amount of involvement parents have is the same amount of involvement their children have. It is not always the teachers fault, however it can depend on a parents dedication to their student. Also the dedication that a student has for school.

    Teachers: The teachers in my school are very encouraging when it comes to our well being of our grades. There is a significant difference between teachers who however teach harder classes. I believe that teachers who give harder classes tend to put more effort with their students.
