A big THANK YOU to the staff, especially Mr Tucker, Ms Benson and her 1st grade class, for helping my grandson adjust and feel welcome at a new school with new people. We all appreciate you so much!

In my opinion there are way too many kindergarten students to be supervised appropriately. All Rapid City schools should be air-conditioned.

Love this school. My oldest kiddo just finished 5th grade, their program to help high functinoing autism is great. The principal is very involved with the students.

The principal is a wonderful advocate for the kids, he maintains a level of familiarity that preserves his authority, yet makes the kids feel they can talk to him about anything. Between the PTA and the principal, the school has a great deal of parental support, and the teachers are free to teach knowing they have the backing of both. The PTA strives to make sure every teacher has any materials necessary for their classrooms, and volunteers for their activities. With strong support from the parents. outstanding leadership from the principal, and a faculty of creative and empowered teachers, Canyon Lake is the only school in the district in which I feel 100% confidence. We have tried other schools in the district (4 others, with 3 kids) and this is and will continue to be our choice.
