    Overall Experience: At Canyon High School I feel like their are very few teachers that will go beyond what they have to do for their students. The teachers and administration don't care about the opinions of the students, when a good 90% of the students doesn't like cougar time but we still do it anyways.

    Overall Experience: This high school has been a really great experience for me. Even as big as the student body is, we all still come together for things like games and competitions but one thing that stands out the most is when tragedy struck our school, we all came together to help the families affected by the tragedy and one another to help cope with it. The students at this school really strive to make people feel welcome and accepted no matter what and that's what I truly love about this school.

    Overall Experience: Though it needs a little work, and the counselors need to be more specific on what to do when getting ready for college, the staff are very accepting of all sorts of people.

    Food: The fruit tastes like bugspray or styrafoam. The breakfasts are meager. The macaroni tastes like glue, and there is no salt or pepper anywhere in the lunchroom. If you want any seasoning, get the ranch. It's fully available.
