Originally founded as a one-room schoolhouse in the late 19th century, Canyon Charter School is part of the PalisadesMore Charter complex, a family of schools that the state of California has authorized for self-governance. School standards and policies are set by the Canyon School Governing Board, which consists of nine individuals, including teachers, staff members, administrators and the parents of enrolled children. Canyon Charter School's specialized instruction underscores eco-sensitivity and diversity; enrollment is open to any student who lives in Los Angeles.

Programs include Second Step, which helps students develop social skills; Beyond the Bell, which allows students to use the playground after the school office closes at 4pm; After School Care, which includes additional art and sports sessions; Intramural Sports, operated by Star Education, which serves many schools in California; School Break Childcare, also coordinated by Star;  Enrichment Classes (drama, languages, more); and Junior Gardeners, through which first- and second-grade students learn about pollination, soil and more.
