Canyon Ridge High School overall is a great school. Having been built relatively recently, the facilities are amazing. Many of my teachers were favorites of my whole academic career. I was involved in the Arts, both as part of the school's band as well as part of the school's show choir, "Synergy!". Though support wasn't always felt from the student body, with much more attention going towards the football/basketball team, for example, we were provided much opportunity by the school to perform at games, in concert, in competition and generally just do what we loved. My biggest issue with the school was just a lack of awareness and recognition in regards to myself. Despite graduating as valedictorian, time and time again I felt that the school, excluding my teachers, had no idea who I was. Not winning certain academic awards which are teacher nominated I can understand, but at my own graduation, in which I was one of 6 valedictorians, my name was forgotten in the program.

My name is Nasreen Khogiani and I been in canyon Ridge High School from four years I am graduating this year 2020, I had a really good time in this school, Canyon Ridge High school helps me learn a lot of new information about everything that is important, it makes me get prepare for my future goals. I really love this school this was amazing opportunity for me. After graduation, I will definitely miss this school. yes sometimes the food was not really good but it was what they could serve. Being in Canyon Ridge High School helps me do My CNA which is a certified nursing assistant after my graduation I can work in hospital as a CNA nurse which is really, it makes my future plan easy. I want to be RN in the future and Canyon Ridge High School had the opportunity for me to take some college classes in high school I did I take advantage of that opportunity now I have about 33 colleges credits in college.
I enjoyed my four years at Canyon Ridge overall, and I did graduate. The school itself pushed dual credit and college courses and offered resources to students to complete them. However, these courses were often at the cost of a normal high school education- the basics in courses were not always covered for each individual student because they were encouraged to complete college courses when they may or may not have been ready. The one thing i would like to see change is more of a focus on students education, rather than getting ahead. High school is a unique period of life, and should not be pushed to the side in order to take extra courses that will most likely not transfer to the college of your choice.
