    Overall Experience: This is going to be my last year at Cyprus High school and I'm completely devastated. It's such a community based school, we all look out for one another and make sure everyone is involved. This last year one of own was diagnosed with cancer and the whole school teamed up to help the costs. Our drill team made dances dedicated for her, we had our football game "Gold Game" dedicated to here where we helped raise money for her and lots more. We all want to see each other succeed, I love this school and I'm so happy I made the choice of coming here.

    Health & Safety: Cyprus High School has a moderate health and safety system. The school is located in Magna, which has a high reputation of being a "dangerous and disgusting" place. The school itself has had a lot of lockdowns due to crime in nearby areas. But the students are generally safe and there is a strong police system in the area.

    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities at Cyprus High School are okay; there is a wide variety to choose from and those who participate are highly interested. However the extra curricular activities are not wide promoted so it's hard to stay informed of the activities.

    Overall Experience: The parent involvement at Cyprus High School is okay; it's not the highest but the parental impact is definitely noticed. The biggest level of parent involvement at Cyprus definitely occurs at sports events (specifically football) and there are low levels of parent involvement at other meetings and school activities.
