If it were not for the leadership of the teachers and parents this school would not be what it is today - A warm, safe, creative place to learn, grow and discover. The Principal holds this school back from reaching it's full potential, she is it's biggest detriment.
Canyon has great, dedicated teachers, strong parent involvement and is small enough that every student can be known and appreciated by the staff. The school lacks a coherent art program, and can only offer PE on an irregular basis. Kindergarten days are short.
This is a very special school--intimate and nurturing--a great way to begin the years of school to follow. What would make it better? Dynamic leadership with offensive thinking about ideas and how to meet challenges to keep Canyon on the cutting edge.
