Our son graduated from Willow Canyon May 2013. He is currently attending Hofstra University in New York. He feels that he was sufficiently prepared for college. He played sports and developed a great relationship with his coaches.

WCHS is committed to students' learning and to their success in the real world. Teachers are tailoring their instruction to the students' needs and talents. It is amazing to experience the culture of learning and cooperation among teachers, students, and parents.

I had an eldest son graduate from WCHS last year, a daughter in Honors classes ready to go into IB next year and an eighth grader.

Recently, I attended the DECA WRLC in Washington, D.C. Kids from Willow Canyon were also in attendance. The kids were disrespectful, running around the hotel loudly and at all hours of the day & night, slamming doors, they even brought an XBOX to the conference (did they really attend the workshops?), ...  Read more

Education is questionable, but best in district. Plenty of activities and school spirit is very high. Many elective courses are offered and their focus on college is stressed highly.

i agree with the senior that posted that comment about students not caring and the teachers focusing on what you wear rather than to help you exceed in your learnings. i am about to be a senior and ive been there throughout my whole high school experience. To be honest, parents arent involved at all ...  Read more
