Cypress Bay High School is an excellent school. I am a senior enrolled there, and I have enjoyed the past three years. The school offers so much to everyone, such as a medical program, a business program and a television production program. There is something for everyone! The school offers a variety of advanced-level classes (Honors, AP, and AICE), and over 30 clubs and extracurricular activities. The teachers are very caring, and administration is very helpful.
Review Cypress Bay High School
Everything about CBHS is big! The student body is approaching 5,000, the campus is similar to one of a college, and there are numerous clubs and sports here. The home of the Lightning is also the home to students of many backgrounds and personalities. The "new kid" won't have too much trouble fitting in. CBHS offers a variety of courses that can meet the standards of any student. The Bay is an exceptional school that simulates and prepares students for college.
Cypress Bay High School is an amazing school with loads of opportunities for expressing individual character and passion. There is a club made for everything and anything, and there are many interesting class selections available to everyone. The teachers are very well qualified, and the curriculum is well thought out and prepared. The amount of students can be overwhelming; there are around 4800 students attending Cypress this year. Areas such as hallways, stairways, and especially the cafeteria are heavy with traffic. Cypress is an all around great school with many opportunities to succeed and shine bright!
