I have thoroughly enjoyed my first three years of attending Canby High School! Filled with a faculty that cares deeply about the students, Canby has been a place of growth and self-realization for me alongside a rigorous academic schedule. Both the student body and staff are constantly pushing themselves and each other to improve in their particular areas. Just as any High School should, Canby has provided me not only with lasting friendships and memories, but also the resources that have allowed me to understand what my next step in life will be. I will be forever grateful to the numerous teachers and staff that have supported me and pushed me to better myself.

Canby High School was much like every high school out there, with weird guidelines/ rules, required state testing that doesn't talk about real world applications of each problem, and the interactions with your classmates. But Canby High also had a community behind it that desired change in the world. Within this district, I have met with South Korean exchange students curious about America (one of which who stayed with me), sang for former president of South Africa De Klerk, hosted a German exchange student and lived with her in Germany, and competed at Oregon State Choir Competition twice. And all of this is from personal experience. A lot of my growing up happened in Canby High, and I cannot imagine spending it anywhere else.
What I like about Canby High School is that teachers are there to help students succed. In this school there is a language, science, and math lab where teachers help you study for a test or when you need help understanding something. What I also like about this school is that there is a great opportunity to get a head start in community college. They offer college credit classes, AP, and honors classes. The school environment is great. What I would like to see a change is in the school lunch. The food is all right, it's not the best. Overall, Canby High School is a very good school and l have had a very good experience.
