I like Canyons School District because of the diversity, we welcome everyone. I also like how they have the Spanish dual immersion program, which I am involved in. I think the administration does a good job communicating with the students and getting them prepared for college. However, I think they could improve the food, specifically the main line. Generally, Canyons District is great!

Great district! I love the high school i went to, however the way the middle school was run was hard, I wish they had done it better. And it wasn't as focused on the arts, specifically music. Mostly about the football and core academics and stuff, but thats usual and we still were successful nonetheless. But I have learned so much and it has been a great time.
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.
