Principal's Message

Welcome to Canyon Middle School. It is my honor and privilege to serve as your principal.  I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the entire school community on receiving so many accolades including the Distinguished School designation from our State and National School to Watch desingation.  Such accomplishments are not possible without an entire community of faculty, staff, students, parents, and partners coming together. Your commitment, dedication, and hard work provided the foundation for the academic excellence that we achieved.

This school year brings an opportunity to continue on our success.  We are embracing the implementation of Common Core State Standards in all of our courses.  Our staff continues to look for ways to include every student in learning and provide avenues for personal growth.  Our students are learning that SOARing is a part of every aspect of school.

My goal as your principal is to ensure that every student sees themselves as part of our Canyon community and that they know they can be successful in whatever adventure awaits them.

Once again, I look forward to working with you and serving you this school year. Please know that my door is always open and I value discussion and collaboration.

Best wishes for a successful school year and remember to SOAR, Canyon!


Matthew Steinecke
