Hello Canyon Families,
I want to welcome you to Canyon High School, a California Gold Ribbon School in the award-winning William S. Hart Union High School District. There is a legacy of family generations that have graduated from and remain connected to Canyon High School. In collaboration with Canyon’s students, alumni, parents and community members, we are committed to the success of each and every one of our students.  Canyon provides a rich scholastic environment for our students that emphasizes rigorous academic opportunities, extraordinary co-curricular involvement, and a culture that champions the advancement of student learning,  Our students benefit from high level college prep programs in the core curricular areas of English, mathematics, science, and social studies with access to outstanding arts and world language curriculum. Additionally, they can choose to be involved in our incredible performing arts programs, our nationally ranked athletic programs, our career tech offerings, or one of our exceptional clubs and service organizations.
