My experiences at Canyon High School have been pretty great for the most part. I am involved in Varsity Volleyball, which is very supported by the school and parents, National Honor Society, and Class office. All these things keep me busy and involved, and having this perspective allows me to see the great "family like" community our school strives to have.

If i had to do it all over again I would choose a different school to have better teachers and get more serious about getting me ready for college.
