Although CCHS is working on improvements, it has room to grow with academic standards, and in implementing respect. The kids often back talk teachers, and can be a difficult environment. There are certain teachers that stand out however in their dedication, and that is always fun to see. The musical department is amazing! Lunches are gaining in good food too. At graduation there is not a validvictorian, just graduating with honors. This school was one I had to adjust to, but after a couple years you’re grateful for the education and opportunities as well.

Canon City High School is a great school in a smaller community, with a lot of support from it. In addition, there is something for everyone. From show choir to mountain biking club. There are great teachers, and people who truly care for you!
Canon City High School is, in my opinion, a fantastic high school. For a small town, CCHS offers amazing opportunities, just a few being our athletics, music program, and concurrent enrollment. The student body is kind and has lots of school pride. The staff truly cares about the students, and I've absolutely loved almost all of my teachers. It's mostly an older building, but the administration is constantly working to make improvements and renovations. My time at CCHS has been amazing.
