I am a Senior at Canyon and have been attending this school for two years. We recently received a grant of over 1 million dollars for all new equipment and have also had the whole administration changed around. There are some new teachers, a new principal, and new assistants. There have been a great deal of changes to the rules around the school. The library is no longer open during lunch, 1 class period has been added to the schedule and no bathroom passes are to be passed out and a hall monitor must escort a student if they need to go. The education is great as long as you have the right teachers. There are some that do not teach very well and it is very difficult to succeed in their class. Though, with others, you simply HAVE to study otherwise you WILL fail. There are some GREAT teachers at Canyon and I believe they have a great magnet program (I've only heard from fellow classmates on this). Canyon has low test scores, yes, but that can easily change if the students actually cared. There are some students that do not care about their education and take it for granted. This school is more than a test score.

I am a Junior in the Magnet Program, majoring in Law. I have never had a problem with my teachers, but because of other student's decisions, teachers are directly impacted and often ruin the learning experience for the rest of us. I am trying to be the Valedictorian, but it is very hard to succeed in this environment. The classes aren't that hard, but the quality of teaching that the teachers offer is not that great compared to other schools. I have never seen such a lazy set of students than at Canyon Springs. These students really care less about school and that hurts my learning environment. Most magnet students do not even act like their supposed to, they do not uphold themselves with high standards, they just find it easy to blend in with the majority of the non-magnet crowd as lazy.

I am in my fourth year in the magnet program at Canyon Springs, have done well at Canyon, and am set to be the valedictorian. Personally I do not believe that this school is the best, nor the worst, school in Vegas. It is a culture shock coming onto campus and witnessing the diversity of the student body but one gets over it after awhile. There are occasional fights, but I just avoids them. Every school has it's ups and downs. I feel that I've made lasting friendships here and I truly believe that success comes from an individuals attitude; make the most of where you are and judge for yourself. Take out of live what you put into life. You determine your success anywhere you are.

Now sure Canyon may get a fair share of negative news but that is only one percent!! I am a junior in the magnet program (law) and i love it. It does indeed prepare you for the graduating senior thesis paper you will have to write in college. The law majors even take a pre-LSAT to prepare us for the law aspect. We are the only High School in the entire country that (a)has a court room in the school. (b)holds a simulated mock trial. and (c)holds an actual civil court case not many others can say that. Are graduate students have went to some of the best colleges in the nation and that is all thanks to the school. Yeah it is seperated into groups and cliques but name me one workplace, fortune 500 company, or other high school that isnt? I bet you cant. Think about that one.

My daughter and I both regret her going to this school. It has only caused her stress and disappointment. She is a great student who worked extremely hard to do well, but due to the low standards of teachers has stuggled. High school is supposed to be fun for these kids, but she has hated every minute of it. This is not a good school to send your child to.

I myself when i first entered the door of CSHS i was in a surprise. this school is really amazing because of its racial diversity. And on top of that they have amazing programs such as Forensics, which our team is doing really great and even though we have very few debaters in it, we are indeed the most united and most racially diverse, which often tends to frighten the other upper class schools. And our language programs are great. The Latin teacher is the best teacher that you can imagine. She might be tough at times but she can also be your friend and make learning Latin a heck of alot more fun for everyone. And of course our magnet program. I myself love the magnet program because, unlike other schools, if you don't apply yourself like you should, you get kicked out. but thats a good thing

I attended Canyon Springs High School for the magnet program and I had a diverse experience. When you come to Canyon you are diving into a crowd that truly is the high school experience. Their are daily fights, drugs in the bathrooms, corrupt and amazing teachers, violence and racism. I can tell you first hand that in order to do well and be recongnized in the magnet program you must be in student council or hang out with the student council kids. Their is not a lot of support or enthusiasm when it comes to the magnet program and personally I don't believe that you gain any useful skills coming out of the program. Some of the teachers are amazing yet the ignorant teachers rule out the amazing teachers. I honestly can say the vibe on campus is one of violence, hostility and racism. The school needs to be reorganized.

Canyon Springs allowed my daughter to ditch classes without informing me. She was a magnet student and they did not help her when she asked for help. In my opinion, Canyon Springs HS is a disgrace to schools everywhere.
