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!
Canyon View is wonderful school. They have a new principal who is outstanding and commited to the kids and their learning. I was happy with the old principal, but am very please with our new one. The kids are learing well, from fabulous teachers. A great enviroment for all our children.
I have two children whom attend this school. It's awesome if you have aconcern they are willing to help get it resolved. My children have grown alot since moving to this school.Just wish more parents got involved.
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.
