In my opinion, the best elective to take is any elective that Mr. Davis. He's a great teacher and makes learning fun for the students. I haven't met a single person who doesn't like his classes.

Cactus Canyon is a great school! We have many electives such as journalism which I have been taking for two years. It is an amazing class. Students from Journalism Two write for the school blog. See our school blog at: http://cougarnewsblog.com/ Comment please!

This year I was nervous about starting a new school but overall this school has made me feel very comfortable. It is the 4th day of school and I feel like I fit right in. As far as "innappropriate behavoir" there are a couple people of course but this a very controled school. The principle is excellent. If you are thinkin of not sending you child here you should have them come here. CCJH is the only school so far in the country that uses laptops instead of text books! Also the phisical fitness is very pushed at this school! And also the food is great and they are based off th the governments "my plate" it isa balanced food plate! The teachers sre great and so are all of the extra curricular activities@ Every year you have the option to go to catilina island or sea world at a reasonable cost! BEST SCHOOL EVER!

I'll admit we were nervous about the two schools merging, but it's turned out to be a easy transition. My daughter loves all her teachers and enjoys her classes very much. She's increased her GPA since attending CCJH and I feel the teachers all really care about their students achievement. The principal is highly involved and stays very active throughout the day. I make it a priority to visit the office and when I do, I'm always greeted nicely. The AIMS and benchmark scores will all show scores of some major improvements for 2011 once posted.
