My daughter has been attending school in this area since fourth grade. She was in her freshman year at canyon, but since we moved she won't be able to go this year just because we are only a few feet away from the school's zone. We are very sad. My son graduated from Canyon, and I think it's the best school. Now she will have to go to Golden Valley. Any ideas?
This school need a lot of attention in the area of getting its students ready for college. Counselor and some teachers are very political. If you want good recommendation, you need to play some political games. Only a few students get all of the SCV Foundation scholarships, and they are all in ASB officers. Yet every year counselors would tell parents that there are plenty of scholarships, but no student apply.
heyy! im a sophmore and this school really is the great.all the teachers are really cool and their great at teaching, they make it alot of fun. i was scared when i first came here but it turned out i was really happy i did come here instead of golden valley, plus its really easy to find your way around the school. Go Cowboyss! XD
Mr. Messina, the principal at Canyon, really tries to get parents involved. He holds wonderful information sessions (called the Parent Advisory Council, or PAC) monthly, at which he works hard to get a lot of information into the hands of parents, and takes the time to listen to parent concerns as well. All of the teachers and support staff have been wonderful as well. The experience has been beyond our wildest expectations for our son.

I love this school! I am currently a sophomore and I cant get enough of canyon! I would recommend this school to everyone it truly is the best school with the best teachers!
I attended Canyon my freshman year, and it was wonderful. I didn't know anyone when i first started, but the staff and other students are great. Even for the large campus population, it feels like home.
Canyon High has one of the most professional looking football fields I have seen. The students really seem to enjoy the school. It's nestled in the middle of the neighborhood. Easy access.
School is great. Santa Clarita schools are among the best in California and this school seems to be among the best. The teahers really seem to care and the community is great.
Canyon is great. The teachers are top notch, and the environment is positive.
Canyon is a great school and has a great sports dept. The parents are very involved at every grade leval.
Children at the ends of the scale are well taken care off. By that I mean RSP and the honors. I have 2 children that have graduated from CHS and currently have a freshman and a 7th grader. I have had 2 RSP children and 1 honors child. I do have a big problem with the lack of enforcement of the dress code. Overall I am happy with my experience at CHS.
