    I don't believe students from any high school only submit a one sentence comment. With that said every high school needs improvements. I would like to know what improvements Canyon Lake High school will spearhead in next years educational goals? Students speak honestly about your school and don't let your parents talk for you. You do it anyway on your Facebook site so why not here. Your honest comments are important for the teaching staff and future students at Canyon Lake.

    Canyon Lake High School has an extraordinary student body. They have grown together and weathered the first years of competition as a new small starting to grow school. In sports music dance voice theater military - they have stuck by each other dispite their differences supported each other and raised each other up as no other I have ever seen.In their first full varsity year they have won and accomplished things no one could have imagined. Always there for each other. They are building the bones of a great school to come.
