My oldest son in now in middle school. He went to Canyon View all of elementary. He is an amazingf student. High reading level, math level, and science level. I am so happy the school puts so much emphasis on reading. My son has a wonderful foundation to build upon. I currently have a 2nd grader at Canyon view and my daughter will be there next fall. I couldn't be happier!

My son was going through a lot of life changes when he started going to Canyon View and the staff was great with him. He had a lot of help adjusting and they were great at keeping in contact. This was the second Kennewick school he attended and I would definitely keep him here.

My son has attended 2 elementary schools in the Tri-Cities before this one. A new beatiful one in West Richland and one in Richland. He loves this school! He says it is his favorite and made me promise we would not move again. The teachers 2 out of 3 years have been awesome!

Great school. Seems to really push the kids to the next level. Our family has only seen one real problem. There needs to be more disciplne in the classrooms. Whenever you are with any class from this school you will hear constant chatter. My children constantly tell me how disruptive the kids are in the classes. Moving to the Kennewick area has shown me that this is a wide spread problem at all age levels. I have been surprised to attend field trips where I feel the kids are being very rude and disrespectful while the teacher sits there like this is acceptable behavior. Manners need to be taught at home first but it is helpfull for the schools to follow up because it flows into the middle schools, high schools, and into adulthood.

Canyon View has a very active PTO and parent involement. Teacher quality is very good. Most teachers really go the extra mile for the kids. Wish there were more extracurricular events for kids in all grades. Principal is non-confrontational.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
