Canyon Hills is one of thirty-nine schools in the Orange Unified School District. The school opened in 1974. The school is located in the Anaheim Hills area next to Canyon High School.
Canyon Hills School is a school for approximately 90 special education students, ages 3 – 22 years of age. Students who are identified with moderate to severe disabilities are placed at Canyon Hills through the Special Education process. We have students who attend from all attendance areas within the Orange Unified School District.
We have a Workshop Teacher who helps prepare our students for the world of work and a Job Coach who takes our students, aged 16 and up, to work sites during the school day where they can practice job skills that will make them successful in the work environment.
All students have an Individual Educational Plan which is evaluated annually with the parents or caregivers for a review of the student’s present level of educational performance. A Tri-annual evaluation is completed every three years to determine whether the student continues to be a child with a disability. All students are a part of the state testing process and tested on the alternative test, the CAPA.
Canyon Hills is a special education school for students of moderate to severe disabilities. At Canyon Hills School, the staff strives to educate and develop each individual to his or her fullest potential within the home, school, workplace and community setting. The staff encourages our students to have a positive attitude toward one’s self and life with an acceptance of each individual and his or her differences. Canyon Hills’ staff is committed to developing and implementing programs that will accomplish this goal.
