Canyon Ridge High School Reviews

The Good: The school is relatively new with well functioning bathrooms, heating, computers, etc. I personally had no issues with bullying, but I know it isn't absent from the school environment. The student body is also very diverse as the school has many refugee children, yet the students are somewhat self segregating so I think the school could do a better job to celebrate that diversity. The arts programs are pretty good, funding and support wise. Many of the Honors teachers are very dedicated and do a good job.

The Bad: There is a culture of academic laziness. Many kids view there high school experiences as something to "get past" or "get over with". While the school may not be able to do too much about that, it can be detrimental to the kids. School spirit is pretty weak and sporting events or school dances are rarely attended. All events only have one DJ on contract, and despite numerous complaints he is still the chosen DJ. There is only 2 AP courses.

I am a senior and I have attended Canyon Ridge High School since my freshman year. The teachers here are all very friendly and honestly care about their students; doing all that they can to help them succeed. There is a large multitude of advanced placement and dual credit classes offered at CRHS, many of which are taken through the College of Southern Idaho. In addition to academic opportunities, a student has many diverse programs/sports to participate in, varying from performing arts all the way to football. Overall, Canyon Ridge High School is an amazing school! I have enjoyed all of my years here and feel as though I have been prepared for future experiences/college!
I went to Canyon Ridge High School; graduating class of 2016. I always had great experiences with staff and administration. They’re dedicated to their work and willing to help in any way they can. The classes that I was put in tested my abilities adequately. I never felt like anything we did was impertinent to the subject. I also played sports. The coaches that I had were amazing. They were extremely knowledgeable in the sport. They were dedicated to not only making good athletes but good people. Overall, Canyon Ridge is a great school. I’d highly recommend this high school to parents and students in the Twin Falls area.
