Academic Medallion

The Academic Medallion is awarded to senior students who have maintained a 3.80 cumulative grade point average or higher for all of ninth, tenth and eleventh grade, and a 3.8 grade point average or higher for each of the first three quarters of the senior year. To be eligible for an Academic Medallion, a student must complete a minimum of 7.0 credits during 12th grade.

Concurrent enrollment college courses are not included when computing each term's grade point average.

Juniors who graduate early will be considered for an Academic Medallion based on cumulative grade point average from ninth and tenth grade and the first three terms of the junior year.

Honor Society

To be a member of the Canyon View High School Honor Society, a student must be a sophomore, a junior, or a senior student.  He/she must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.80 or higher.  If a student's cumulative grade point average falls below a 3.80, he or she can be dropped from the Honor Society.  A membership fee is charged. Each student receives a special certificate signifying his/her membership in the Honor Society.

Student of the Month (Falcons Finest)

Canyon View High School departments choose student of the month and other service organizations based on specific criteria.

Honor Roll

The Canyon View Chronicle publishes an honor roll at the end of each grading period.  The honor roll is divided into two sections: High Honor Roll, 3.80 to 4.0, and Regular Honor Roll, 3.50 to 3.79.  Ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students are eligible for the Honor Roll.  The Roll is based on each term's grade point average instead of cumulative grade point average.

Academic Letter

The Academic Letter is awarded on the basis of each school year's grade point average. To qualify, a student must earn a GPA of 3.67 or higher for the school year with no F grades. To be eligible for an Academic Letter, a senior must earn at least 5.0 credits during his/her senior year and earn an average of 3.67 GPA or higher for terms 1-3 with no F grades. Students may receive an Academic Letter for each year of high school. Students who earn an Academic Letter may purchase a school sweater or letter jacket.
