I love Cypress Bay High School! This high school teaches students how to be independent and prepares them for the real world. There are so many AICE classes, Cambridge classes, along with AP course to choose from. Cypress also has a wide variety of clubs, after-school activities and sports programs for their student to take full advantage of. College Advisors are always there to help students through the college application process and provide them with guidance.

I cannot describe in words how much I enjoyed my years in Cypress Bay. What makes The Bay so unique? The "Big Kahuna", Mr. Charles Neely. Our amazing principal has made being a student at Cypress more than just 4 years of school, he has turned it into an experience that none of the alumni or future grads will ever forget. What's the secret? Neely has given us trust in exchange for respect. The freedom that students have on campus is what makes this place so amazing. You can be, do, and say whatever you want as long as you are respecting others and getting good grades. That is the trust that Mr. Neely puts in all his students and we all pay him right back with respect and with amazing grades. No school will ever compare to Cypress Bay and I am beyond grateful to all the staff who made my experience at The Bay unforgettable, and specially thankful to the "Big Kahuna" Mr. Neely. Go Lightning!
Great School with excellent teachers. Offers over 30 AP Courses with consistently high passing rates. Includes a diverse array of clubs and extracurriculars for all students. Many guidance counselors that pay personal attention to their students. Recently got a renovated media center and front office. Overall, I've had a great 4 years at this school and will not forget the many wonderful memories I've made here!
