    There is a strong possibility that students will NOT be able to share materials next year. It is really important that all students have their own materials and something to keep them in.

  • Hello and welcome to the Renaissance program at Canyon Springs! I look forward to having an exciting school year. The Renaissance program is an amazingly unique program where students are able to think deeper and work as a team across subjects and grade levels. We have the ability to slow down and help our students gain a deeper understanding of the curriculum and the world they live in. Students will be participating in many group and individual problem based lessons, socratic discussions, and projects in Social Studies this year. We are a family, who support each other, and learn from one another, and we are excited for a wonderful, new school year.
