This school is known in the community for its team spirit and artistic talents. 2011 A new Superintendent (Dr. Judy White) came in and made some amazing changes, all of Moreno Valley schools are soaring now.
My son is a 10th grader that was struggling in some subjects; I attempted to get ahold of one of the teachers to gain some understanding on the areas my son needed help. I emailed his teacher with no response after 3 days, I then decided to send a follow up email with no response. I finally contacted his counselor to verify the teaches email address which was correct; 2 weeks had passed since my initial email. I then hired a tutor that could assist my son some in the areas needed; I still had not heard from the teacher at this point. Before I go any further let me say that I realize not all educators are nonchalant about whether their students actually grasp concepts or not. But at the end of the day, these other uncaring individuals that call themselves "educators" are out there, and they are easy to spot. When you have parents such as myself who are willing to go above and beyond to get their child the tools to succeed it is extremely frustrating to see that the teachers that we entrust our children too are not willing to do the same. Very disappointed in the education at Canyon and the nonchalant attitude from the staff.
I am not very pleased with this school. My daughter went there for three years and my son for the 9th grade and he will not be returning. Teachers don't communicate with parents if kids are having problems or failing, not all the teachers keep the infinite campus tool up do date or even put grades in it at all. This is a great tool for parents if teachers would just use it properly. The classroom sizes are too large these days and students don't get the proper attention they need. If your child is not a genius and tracking with every assignment, they will be left behind or just passed with a "D" so they're not left behind. Why do schools put out dress codes if no one at the school enforces them? I did my part in making sure my daughter left the house in appropriate attire, but she was able to change at school into short shorts and never got sent home and I never got a call or email about it. This is probably just one of the schools that is conforming to this world and just accepting everything just so no one has to put their foot down and stand up for what is right for these kids whether the kids like it or not.
Please excuse the typo. That last post was supposed to read, "This is a really great school at which to teach." Just goes to show, teachers should practice what we preach: "Proof read your work!"
i Love this school, the teachers are friendly and i've made a lot of new friends already it's only my freshman year and i really like it
It is a dangerous school and there is very concern for the safety or education of the students
I attend cshs and might I say that this school is really serious about getting good grades and working hard. learning is priority number one.
I freaking love canyon its the best school i have ever been to i met some awesome friends and the teachers are ok but over all that school is a very good school i miss going there i want to go back for my senior year so bad 'canyon i miss you baby!!!!!!!!!) by the way this school has more activies and clubs and more better funner electives than any other school out there in the world. Love elisa rios ochoa
Good school. Good people execpt for some stupid people but overall nice people. Lots of fun at lunch good food good hangouts. Great wrestling program other sports dont work as hard.
Canyon Springs is a great school! My son attends this school and has for the last 3 years. It has been a wonderful experience and stepping stone for him and his future. The ACT program is #1 and the sports programs as the best. The teachers and administrators are wonderful and very helpful - especially Mr. Rhodes Williams. I'm not impressed with the Principal, Tammy Guzzetta - I think she could use some classes herself on how to deal with parents and students for the position she is holding but overall I would give this school an A++
Its worth the waiting list if you get in. ACT is stil the best acasdemy if you are realy into graphic art and computers, even video production. As afreshmen I really enjoyed Canyon, evan as a sophmore I enjoyed it. Today I enjoy it as a Junior enroled in ACT.
The Canyon Springs HS Academy of Creative Technologies (ACT) program and ROP Print Graphics classes really got me motivated to strive for a college degree and life-long carreer in an area that I love.
As a parent of a previous graduate(salutatorian) and a parent of a new student at Canyon Springs, I have only great things to say about this high school. The key to a successful student is the parents' involvement. Check homework, check attendance, ask your student about school. Again - get involved! What ever happened to giving back to the school - if you are asked to help with an activity - say yes! School spirit is a must! There are so many teachers that want the students to be involved and have school spirit. That is the whole fun of high school - why not have fun while you learn! Thank you Canyon Springs for being a great school!
To many teachers are affected by the students behavior rather than teaching and controlling the class. AP classes as well as high level classes are great, as are the academies, it is when you get into the average classes that behavior dictates learning done not the teachers.
This is not the best school-I am not sure if it is the worst but in my experience as a parent thus far this school is a disaster. Home Schooling Here We Come!
One of the better public schools in the Inland Empire.Adminstrators live in the community and are involved in the community. I would suggest parents get to know your child's teachers where ever they go to school.
This school is ok even though some of the teachers dont know what they are doin and dont teach me anything.
One of the better high schools in the city. Still has somewhat of all small town feel to it. Spring carnivals and homecoming parades.
