I would like the district to give more power to the schools. That would include letting the schools use more of the state's money in they way they want. All schools need to be treated the same. Corner Canyon has so much money being poured into their school. It is like a small university! Canyons makes changes without consulting the people it will effect. They need to listen to teachers, not politicians.

Canyons School district provides many schools with outstanding courses to take. They make sure you're college ready. The schools that are apart of the Canyons School District are great! Especially for seniors, they are guided through college applications, scholarships, and counselors help very much by following up on your status. Academics are a 10/10. I'm so lucky to be apart of this district. The teachers are always willing to help out, along with wanting to teach students. They come to work motivated and ready to cover the materials needed. There are a large number of clubs all ranging from math club to tennis clubs. I have had a wonderful experience at Canyons School District.
I loved the surplus of possibilities to receive college credit in high school. I was able to receive several credits and was able to have many excellent teachers that cared about me and my education. The theater program was absolutely amazing! Hillcrest especially put on some an amazing plays and productions. Cleanliness never seemed to be a big factor of Hillcrest but was absolutely amazing in every other way. Oh, there was also a few problems with the cooler and heater.
