this school is really cool ! hour lunch, we get to get out and go home to eat or we have the chose of eathing at the school cafeteria. also we dont have to wear uniforms. the teachers are super cool and they are really good at teaching they are aslo really frendy and kind.what i dont like about this is that the school starts really early at 7:50 and that we have to walk to the elementary school to go eat but anyways the school isnt very far. i would recomend this school to evryone and also when school beggins you get a free cumputer so you can do your work at school or home but you have to turn it in at the end of the school year

I graduated from Candian High School with the class of 2003. I am currently attending West Texas A&M University. I can definitely assure you that Canadian High is one of the best, if not the best, school in Texas. It definitely teaches you how to be prepared for college and college right now, isn't as hard as I expected because the teachers were excellent and pushed us until we were the best and knew we couldn't be anything but the best. While several students are struggling with their grades and keeping up with homework, I'm far from struggling. Canadian High has made me become a disciplined student. The teachers taught me how to write a great essay, how to actually STUDY for a test or maybe an occasional pop quiz, and how to read your assignments for the pop quiz. I can never repay the teachers and faculty in Canadian for making me be the best that I can be.

My name is Reese Talley. I graduated from Canadian High School in the class of 2003. I now attend Midwestern State University. CHS pushes its students much more than other schools. Which is why a majority of its graduates attend some of the best universities in the state. Because of all the essay writing, upper level math, and the constant homework pressure that I recieved at this school has made my college experence thus far a breeze. Writing papers, and dealing with loads of different coarse work is much easier for me than it is for most other students. I do owe that to the excellent teachers at CHS.
