Cypress Bay High School Reviews

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!

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.
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.
