Canyon Pointe is a Great Expectations school.  Great Expectations (GE) is a teaching model which reflects a cooperative nature between the educator and the learner through shared leadership.  Leadership is not a title given to one person but is developed in all as a result of a supportive and challenging learning environment.  Shared leadership is based on well-defined roles and responsibilities within the entire learning community.  When learners and educators work together to set goals and achieve them, excellence is inevitable, and the learner will achieve them, excellence is inevitable and the learner will achieve more than was ever thought possible. (Great Expectation Methodology Manual, p.77).
