    Overall Experience: For most of my highs school career I had been attending smaller schools, So when I came to Canyon you can imagine the pressure I felt to not only be able to navigate myself to the correct classrooms but to be able to fit in with people who had already know each other for most of their lives. But my first day of attending Canyon, although nervous I felt a sense of acceptance not only from the teachers but from the students as well. And that is what I have enjoyed most about attending Canyon.

    Food: The school lunch typically represents what is to be expected of a normal cafeteria lunch; not so cheap for mediocre food.

    Administration & Policies: The administration as well as the students are well aware of what's acceptable and what is not. And when one tries to test the limits, rightful punishments follow in pursuit.

    Sports & Fitness: Although we may not have the most wins when it comes to sports, we do have an undeniable sense of sportsmanship within the teams.
