NFUSSD - Canyons School District

Canyon School District

Canyons School District, the first new school district to be created in Utah in nearly a century, began offering educational services to the neighborhoods of Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Midvale, Sandy and the town of Alta on July 1, 2009.

From the time of the District’s founding, both the elected Board of Education and Administration have maintained a fierce dedication to building a district of national distinction. To that end, Canyons District focuses its attention on four major tenets: student achievement, innovation, community engagement and customer service

The District, which covers roughly 192 square miles in the southeast part of the Salt Lake Valley, serves approximately 33,000 students in 29 elementary schools, eight middle schools, four high schools and four special programs.
