Canyon Day Junior High School

The current CDJHS building was established in 2002. The school is built into three wings and includes a gym, cafeteria and sport annex. We are located within walking distance from the beautiful White River in Canyon Day. Our mascot is the Rough Riders and the artwork for the mascot was developed by a student, Dion Hawkins.

Our current enrollment is approximately 500 students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. CDJHS has a unique schedule in that 6th grade students take blocked classes and the 7th and 8th graders are on a traditional junior high schedule. There are even courses on campus taught remotely through the Internet. There are 30 teachers on campus and our staff are from the Fort Apache area, Tucson, Phoenix, and even the Philippines.

Popular activities at CDJHS include sports like basketball and clubs like robotics. We have an active Native American club and class.  Our Rough Rider ticket system rewards students for positive behavior.

Being a Rough Rider means our students and staff have grit. We all work hard and play hard. Our staff members work well together and our students are achieving and improving every day.

Being a CDJHS Rough Rider is a positive state of mind and requires determination and hard work. Welcome to Canyon Day where we make every day count.
