I could not be more proud of our school. 2014 marks my fourth year as principal, and I taught English and was a counselor at North Canyon in the 1990’s. I have some great memories of this school from that time, and being asked to return as principal truly felt like “coming home.” What makes North Canyon special? Our diverse student body and diverse programs make us unique.
In 2013, we adopted a new mission statement, “North Canyon empowers students to care, learn, and succeed, ensuring college and career readiness"; short but very powerful. Our school has a PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) program. Students developed our school wide expectations. “Show your Rattler Pride – Be responsible, be accountable, take initiative, and be respectful.” We continually reinforce positive examples of these practices.
