    Academics: There is a wide selection of different academics at Cyprus High School. There are different teachers to teach all students different techniques on different subjects. I love how there is a class for every student, so we all don't struggle on different subjects

    Student Culture & Diversity: High school isn't like the movies, but we do have the little groups of friends that all hang out. The jocks and preps. And the "nerds" we all hang out with "our own people" but when it comes to and kind of games we all gather together and are friendly to everyone

    Extracurriculars: Our extracurricular activities are for the most part really good. I think the football team hasn't improved for a long time. We have a hard time scoring, so therefor we have a hard time scoring. But our school spirit is amazing. We cheer our team on like crazy. We support the football team, winning or losing. Most of our sports and clubs are amazing and our school gives so much support for everything no matter what it is.

    Overall Experience: The three years that I have attended this school have taught me so many skills and life lessons that I will need after high school. But also I've learned about things that I will never use outside of High school. I push myself to do better in school, so I can do better in the real world. I have had amazing teachers who have taught me amazing life lessons. I am very thankful for the teachers who have put their devoted time into teaching me the things I know today.
