Canutillo High School's peers are out of this world. They have very vibrant personalities and bullying is almost nonexistent at this school. However, the staff is terrible, they do not focus on the education and mental health of students but focuses rather on dress code and tardiness. The new implemented rule of tardy sweeps are inconvenient to not only students and parents, but to administrators and staff as well. The principle focuses more on the outside appearance of the students rather than what's inside and their health. Would never bring my kid to attend this school no matter what.

Canutilllo High School is one of the best high schools I've ever attended. The staff, administration, and the teachers are all really nice and hard-working, the academic program is of one of the highest quality in the district, therefore students are guaranteed a good education; there are various extracurricular programs that help students build leadership and team skills, and the overall experience enriches our lives with great memories with great people.
What I like about Canutillo High School is how administrators and teacher take the educational process very serious. All teacher are required to have a lesson plan, a goal, and what will they do to achieve that goal by the end of every week. The learning process in my school deals with a lot of projects individually, but most of the time with classmates. Teacher are always trying their best for their student, what I mean is that they explain in a variety of ways if they can. No student is left out everyone has a voice and all opinions are respected.
