A District of Winners: Canyons District Takes Home Top Marks in High School Rankings

The saying goes, “winning is a state of mind.” Here in the Canyons School District, our high schools are taking winning to a whole new level. Newly published rankings by U.S. News and World Report show Canyons high schools are coming out on top.

CSD high schools claim five of the top dozen spots when compared to traditional high schools in the Salt Lake Valley, according to the 2023-2024 rankings.

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

College Curriculum Breadth – 10 percent

Graduation Rate – 10 percent

U.S. News and World Report hasn’t released its 2023-2024 rankings for elementary and middle schools. But CSD students in grades 3-8 this year, again, outpaced their Utah peers on year-end RISE scores.

“The great performance of our high schools builds on the foundation set by our elementary and middle schools, which did a tremendous job in proficiency and growth on the RISE tests last year,” said Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins. “We couldn’t be prouder of our motivated students and our dedicated teachers and support staff.”

The U.S. News and World Report rankings come after Public School Review announced Canyons as the No. 1 school district in Utah, based on test scores. Canyons also was rated No. 1 in Salt Lake County by Niche.com.
