I graduated Class of 2017. I had average grades A/B's all 4 years, I TOOK NO AP & NO IB classes 1170/1600 SAT and still got in to all 9 (Top 100 US College/University) The school does an amazing job helping you prepare and get accepted to Universities. I will say If Canyon had better teachers (like El Rancho did) than I would have no doubt that I wouldn't have struggled as much academically the first year at my University. My ADVICE to fellow students and parents reading this would be to have your students take a mixed Regular & Honors classes, AVOID AP & IB classes, that way your student can actually enjoy high school, than I would recommend to go straight to Community College, the only 3 good ones in the OC (based on what % transfer into decent Universities) are Santiago (SCC), Orange Coast College, and Irvine Valley. Don't bother going anywhere else! This way you cut your college DEBT in HALF! BEST ADVICE EVER, I personally ended up on 70% scholarship to a top 60 US rank University

Canyon High School has been one of the most challenging, yet one of the best times of my life. Everyone says that high school comes and goes like a blur, but the friendships and memories I have made at this school is something else. Sure, the food may not be the best and the teachers can also be pretty lacking when it comes to teaching ability, but as an overall experience Canyon has been great. I have grown so much as a person at this school and the people here can treat you like family.
Was graduate in 1979 and this school has always been class act! All the teachers I came in contact were always willing to help. As a student who graduated from Canyon when it was in it's infancy it has garnered well earned kudos for how it has turned out. Thanks Canyon!
