Cypress Bay High School Reviews

It has a lot of academic opportunities! It has a lot of AP courses, AICE diplomas, and chances for dual enrollment. Teachers are dedicated, some more than others, which I'm sure is the same everywhere. Art teachers might have to buy cheap, but they have supplies. Computers are old, but a lot of classes have them. Students can get nasty competitive, but that type usually sorts itself into a insular clique.
It's a big school though, and if you don't chase down scholarship opportunities, ESE services, counselors, etc., people won't turn up for you, unless you're one very, very lucky teacher's pet. Take the drug PSAs seriously, doing drugs will push you into social groups that genuinely think drunk driving is fun in a way it might not in other schools. Also, although it's better than a lot of South Florida schools in this regard, the bathrooms (as of 2020) are always a little bit falling apart.

Cypress Bay is an amazing high school in almost every aspect. The teachers and staff are always extremely helpful and close to the students, treating everyone with kindness. The school is closed with fences and every student must wear an ID, reassuring everyone of the high level of security. There are different booths in the cafeteria with several options for students to enjoy the food of their choice. The academics are excellent, preparing the students for their future paths in college, work, and their futures. I see the diversity of friend groups and overall friendliness daily. When it comes to sports, the school does amazingly and every student is extremely dedicated and passionate about the teams! The school offers many clubs for everyone to join and/or take charge with officer positions. Cypress Bay has the most school spirit I have ever seen and never stops to amaze me with its new activities and spirit weeks!
Being one of the largest public schools in the State of Florida, Cypress Bay Highschool remains a tight-knit community with phenomenal staff, administration, and safety standards. Countless of AP, AICE, honors, regular and dual enrollment courses are offered to students which have prepared me adequately for college. Could not have asked for a better high school experience. Go lightning!
