    "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."
