Canyon High School Reviews

I'm an overachiever student. I LOVE the fine arts, mathematics, and English language arts. CHS just doesn't have much to offer in those areas. While most schools in our area offer 4 year finance classes, we only offer one year or one semester. Our fine arts program achieves highly, but our instructors tend to belittle the students. And, our English teachers regularly fail to administer new and needed material for testing.
Social groups are secluded, agriculture is over emphasized, and the administration is far too political. Don't get me wrong, there are good people, it's just hard to find good people in the district who aren't known as favorites, or else, blackballed rebels.

CHS is a nice school, but you won't get anywhere unless you're an athlete. As it's a smaller town, cliques have formed since kindergarten, and good luck fitting into them unless you're new, and again, athletic. Also a lot of stereotyping and judgment as it's a majorly white school. But once you do find your groove and the people you want to associate with, you can count on a hassle-free year that flies by. Easygoing classes and teachers. Keep in mind athletics > academics.
I'm a Freshman at Canyon High School, and I expected the stereotypical mean upperclassmen, but that wasn't the case at all. They were all willing to help us out. The teachers are absolutely wonderful, the cafeteria has a large selection of food, and we even have a coffee shop in our Library. We have a lot of clubs and events for students, such as a Spanish Club, an Anime Club, and an all- school musical that our choir and theater department puts on every year. Speaking of that, the CHS fine arts program is undeniably spectacular, with packed auditoriums at choir and band concerts, and a sold-out show nearly every night at the musical. Our sports program is also one of the best, with our varsity girls basketball team won 4 consecutive state championships, and was nationally recognized by MaxPreps. The campus is very clean and very beautiful, as is was built. Overall, it's an amazing school.
