Helping students become college- and career-ready by graduation has certainly become a niche for Canyons School District over the past 13 years.
Niche, a platform for connecting students and families with colleges and schools, agrees.
Canyons School District ranks No. 1 for Best School Districts in Salt Lake County and is also perched at the top of school districts in the surrounding metropolitan area, according to Niche’s grading system. CSD earned an overall B+, receiving an A- in administration and college prep, a B+ for academics, clubs & activities, and teachers, and a B in diversity.
This ranking comes on the heels of Canyons being named the highest-ranked district in Utah for overall testing scores, according to Public School Review. That ranking is based on the percentage of schools within a District to have placed in the top 5 percent of all schools statewide for math and reading test scores. That review also revealed that Canyons has the highest concentration of top-ranked schools (20 percent) in the state.
Canyons students also rank No. 1 for math proficiency scores, per Public School Review.
