I really enjoy going to Cypress High School! I've been to pep-rallies along with sports games and parents are very supportive in both their children's education as well as their physical and mental appearance. Students in Cypress High School are very energetic and involved with lots of the events at school. In my opinion this school is unique because of the staff. Teachers are very helpful with their students education. On January 1, 2015, I had the honor of attending the Tournament of Roses and the Rose Parade with my band. We worked extremely hard to perform to the best of our limit. Overall my experience of attending Cypress High School is a blessing and I'm extremely thankful to my parents for bringing me to such a wonderful school.
Review Cypress High School
Cypress High School is a great school. Teachers and staff try their best in maintaining a great environment for students. The school provides a good amount of support and materials to those who need them. On top of that, the school looks for ways for improvements. When they say that "Cypress is the best school in America," they do their best to justify that statement. From education to students' involvements, they want greatness for schooling. Considering that there are still some minor aspects of the school that needs attention, I believe the the school is motivated to improve on those characteristics.
Being a sophomore at Cypress High School has already taught me much. My first year there I didn't know anyone but I quickly made friends with the friendly students of Cypress High. The teachers at Cypress are super friendly, they create a learning environment an enjoyable place to be. In the beginning of sophomore year AP teachers expose you experience a college environment which helps prepare us to be ready in the future.Being an athlete at Cypress High has taught me many things, some of them being sportsmanship, leadership skills, as well as teamwork. My overall review of Cypress High School is that it's an enjoyable and pleasant place to learn in.
