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.
For Canyons School District, it is very important to make sure all of the kids are making good attendance, getting good grades, are college ready, safe, comfortable and last but not least make sure that they are having fun! There are always so many activities, games, dances, and clubs you can join! There is never a dull moment.
