Canyons High Schools Continue to Claim Top Spots in U.S. News & World Rankings

If success is hard, sustained success is even harder. Newly published rankings by U.S. News and World Report show Canyons District’s high schools continue to come out on top.

Each of CSD’s five traditional high schools rank in the top 16 when compared to high schools in the Salt Lake Valley, according to the 2024-2025 rankings.

Four are in Utah’s top 25 with most showing sizable gains from last year’s rankings, led by Jordan High, which rose 14 steps to land the Beetdiggers squarely in Utah’s top 45. 

“These rankings are a reflection of the deep bench of talent we have in CSD and a continued commitment to student success by our faculty, staff, students, and parents,” said Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins. “It takes daily effort and a focus on high-quality learning by all our schools, from kindergarten on up.”

In rating schools, the report weighs six factors:

College Readiness – 30 percent

State Assessment Proficiency – 20 percent

State Assessment Proficiency – 20 percent

Underserved Student Performance – 10 percent

Among CSD’s high schools, Corner Canyon topped the charts, placing fourth in the Salt Lake Metro area and sixth among the 217 Utah high schools ranked by U.S. News. Corner Canyon boasts a graduation rate of 94 percent.

Brighton and Alta join Corner Canyon in placing among Salt Lake County’s top 10. Hillcrest and Jordan are both in the metro area’s top 16.

In the state rankings, four of CSD’s high schools realized big gains, jumping between four and 14 places.
