When I had started high school I didn't know a single soul, but after just the first day I had made so many new friends and the teachers and staff were amazing! Now I am a senior and over these past 4 years I have had the best time of my life, the staff at Cibola have done so much for me and all the students to make sure we have a good time and learn at the same time. Thank you teachers and staff at Cibola High School!

Throughout all four years at this school, I have had plenty of opportunities and help available to me. All the staff I have interacted with have all been very kind and have put in plenty of effort into helping myself and my peers succeed. Although I cannot speak on the sports programs, as I did not participate in them, the clubs and organizations available to students are fantastic. There's a great variety of clubs and activities. I strongly believe that this is one of the greatest strengths of this school. In addition to the clubs and organizations, the electives are also stellar due to the variety available and the passion of the teachers who teach the courses.
I think the teachers that I've been exposed to are exceptional. You can tell they care. They want to be there and they want you to succeed. They're not just going through the motions. They'll take the time to give you extra help if you're struggling and they won't judge you. The student population, however, tends to bring down the overall aura. The security guards, for instance, are great people who love talking with students, but a lot of times, they are driven to a state of frustration. You can't blame them. Some students just love causing problems and they can be mean. To staff and other students. This makes me appreciate the faculty even more so. Not only are they able to deal with these bringers of havoc, but they still prioritize education and a positive environment. Even with these troublesome kids, they hold out hope and attempt to guide them to a different stance on life. I wish to change this "hate-all" mindset just as the faculty try to do.
