Nestled in the foothills of the city of American Canyon, Canyon Oaks Elementary School serves students in kindergarten through grade five. Canyon Oaks opened in the Fall of 2005. Home to the Mighty Oaks, Canyon Oaks Elementary School serves a diverse community of learners. The school's focus is on a whole-child approach to teaching and learning in order to promote a caring and inclusive community; we promote the social-emotional, academic, behavioral, and physical success for ALL.  Students at Canyon Oaks receive excellent academic instruction supported by collaborative grade-level teams, research-based instructional programs, and highly effective student engagement strategies. Additionally, students are supported by the school-wide Positive Behavior Support programs/BEST Expectations, Toolbox SEL, Second Step, and Restorative Practices.

Staff, students, and parents work together to create a sense of community through special events and programs. Canyon Oaks Parent Teacher Organization hosts an annual Harvest Festival in October and Spring Arts Festival in May. These events are designed to bring our school community together and celebrate the work and talents of children.  Monthly BEST assemblies highlight our school focus to Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be your BEST, including the recognition of student leaders from each class and monthly character traits. Students teach each other about what it means to be a “Mighty Oak”.

Mission: Canyon Oaks students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to help them develop a lifetime love of learning.

Vision: All students will master grade level standards in a learning environment that supports inquiry and collaboration for students and teachers as they make meaning of knowledge.

Parents and Visitors: According to state law and board policy, all parents and visitors must check in at the office and must wear a visitor's badge or NVUSD issued identification when on campus during school hours.
