Canyon Oaks High School welcomes you to the home of the Mountain Lions and the Mountain Lion Pride!


We have true pride in our sense of family and in what we do!  We are proud of our institutions and are excited to have you join our thriving academic and social practices culture. We invite you to share our enthusiasm for student learning and success in a safe, challenging, career pathway-rich environment. Our school is known for its positive climate, high academic expectations, and the strong partnerships that exist between school, home, community and industry. Our top priorities are developing innate talents, awakening a life-long passion for learning, and fostering responsible citizenship.


Canyon Oaks High School is designed to provide an atmosphere where students, with a wide-range of needs and educational abilities, can excel in a non-traditional setting. Providing a safe and caring learning environment is a high priority for our staff and stakeholders. Students are allowed to achieve success, discover and participate in career pathways, earn credits toward a high school diploma, and develop feelings of self-worth and responsibility. We celebrate the multicultural experiences of our students and the wonderful diversity of our community.


Make it a great year Graduation Nation. Remember, “Enter to learn. Go forth to earn!”
