    Great school great people love the staff there. The secretary can be rude though. I don't know why she seems to hate her job I guess. Anyway my kid loves his teacher and she seems to genuinely care for him. SHe's kind of new and only been there a few years but she really seems to like her job and it shows. I like the prinicipal too she seems to know the students and tries to resolve issues as they happen. Great place to have a my kid I heard negative things about it but I must say I don't see anything but good stuff going on there.

    I like Cannon alot. My kids have went there for the last three years. The teachers are great and seem to really care about the kids and they challenge them and expect them to follow rules.
