Canyon high school is an interesting places. The best parts about the school are amazing, but the worst parts are impossible to overlook. The teachers who truly care about the students end up teaching them much more than just their respective subjects. Unfortunately, there are many teachers, usually coaches, who do not care about their learning environments. The administration does a decent job of corralling the overabundance of students through the day. These same administrators are often second fiddle to the whim of the parents though, and this can lead to some contradictory rules enforcement's.
Review Canyon High School
I attended this high school from 2013 to 2015. It was big changed from the school I came from, which was Midland High School. The curriculum was way head from anything I had experienced so I struggled at first. Though, the teachers were very helpful with getting me on track and I was able to graduate with in the top 15% of my class. I was also able to play basketball at Canyon among a great coaching staff. We didn't do as well as we hoped during my basketball career, but it was still a good learning experience. The coaches taught me leadership and how to work with a team.
I came to Canyon High School in the 9th grade from another state, and was very much welcomed into the environment. I was very shy and nervous about this school because it was so much bigger than I was used to, thousands here versus hundreds at my old school. Students there helped me to find my way around and helped me to become the person I am today!
