    "I graduated from NCHS in 2007. I have never loved anything more. Threre are all kinds of activities to do: Student Government, Mentors, IB/AP, Peer Mediators, AVID, Tutor, Play a sport, join orchestra or band and the list goes on. As long as you get involved and do your homework you will do well at this school. As far as the diversity goes... I feel as if exposure to all the different kinds of people made me the person I am today. A better person. A person who' going to College to be a teacher because of this school. Most of the teachers are amazing, some are not, but that is expected with any school. The administration is decent. They get back to you with your concerns within ample time, but they only focus on the bad kids. But overall I loved going here!!!"

    "I am currently attending NCHS in the honors/IB/MYP and have never hated attending school this much. The teachers are poor, as they do not explain assignments and expect you to figure it out for yourself. When I read it was a '7', I laughed. The students and staff have a long was to go before they're even a '5'."

    "I sincerely hope no other child or parent is treated as poorly as my daughter and I were as she is a victim of a harrassing bully. It seems the VP is more concerned with protecting the school's image rather than my daughter's safety. I give NCHS a big 'F-'."

    "Our family loves North Canyon. We have had 3 students attend IB/AP and are thrilled with the academics, counseling dept., administration and many fantastic teachers. The sports are competitive and coaches have the athletes best interests at heart. North Canyon has given our kids a head start with their future by pushing them academically and supporting them throughout the process. They helped our oldest through the Merit Scholar process and will hopefully do the same for the other two!"

    "My daughter attended NCHS and graduated in 2007, my husband and I both believe that the experience with this school and the teachers were very fruserating. It seemed to us that they were more interested in passing the students rather than teaching them."
