A few if the teachers here legitimately care about their students, and there is a few administrators that care. They take the time to learn the kids, there are those who don't care they are just there to earn a check. On a day of remembering Texas some of the teachers were more worried about taking selfies with other teachers then making sure the kids were being taken care of. If your child has a disability or if they are different at all, they will give up on that child, and will leave them out of every aspect of extra curricular activity. But on that note I am not sure if it is because they have a disability or if it is because they do not come from Canyon, TX. I actually over heard a parent tell another parent, oh you did not grown up in Canyon, how sorry I am for your child, since your an outsider, your child will not be included in any of the birthday parties, or anything, because we don't like outsiders. How sad for the city of Canyon, that they have that kind of attitude! You wonder why the city of Canyon has had so many children suicides in one year, here is a clue. When a parent makes a bullying statement like that, what must there children learn from them!

As with any school in Texas, the teachers must teach to the test, so they lose the little things that are important to learn. Most teachers there are good, the administration is too small and too self absorbed to really pay attention to the students. The school is too large for students to engage in social learning alongside academic. I had 1 child go Kinder through 3rd without knowing anyone in her class, 4th she knew at least 1 but never got to see anyone in classes outside the partner class. Way to large of a school! Also, ADHD will continue to rise if they won't give the kids more than 10 minutes to run their energy out. Recess is 10 per day. Kids still need to release energy and stretch!

This School has great teachers but needs a new principal. Her clothes, hair and status are important to her. She will put her teachers into tears in front of parents and if you disagree with her she will send CPS to your house and the state apologizes for the false accusations. Brandi Parker should get worst principal of the year. This school has such great potential and needs a leader that cares.

Too many kids for 1 principle, 1 vice and staff spread too thin. Act fast to get a Teacher that Cares, like Mrs. Barnes, they can be requested (highly recommend doing so)
