The challenges faced by students in high school are both varied and unique. We hope to help our students navigate some of these challenges by providing resources to help both students and parents as they work through any obstacles that can sometimes hinder academic performance and social and emotional growth while here at Corner Canyon. We hope you find these useful.

Bullying and Harassment
Bullying is defined as “aggressive behavior that is intentional and that involves an imbalance of power or strength.” A student is being bullied or victimized when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students.
Cyber-bullying is defined as “sending insulting, threatening or harassing messages by phone or computer, or electronic messaging.”
If you have knowledge of cyber-bullying or any misconduct please meet with your assistant principal as soon as possible. Canyons School district also maintains a site where students and parents may report instances of bullying, harassment, discrimination, hazing, or abuse:
