School Notes

  • The question we are asked most often by prospective parents is "Why Cannon?"
  • It's the people.  Cannon School is a community of caring and thoughtful people.Our faculty and staff understand that teaching and learning happen best in an environment built on trust and support.Cannon students -- knowing that their teachers, advisors, and coaches care about them commit to the journey of intellectual growth and discovery. Along the way, Cannon students take on challenges. They take risks. They explore.  Sometimes they experience success. Sometimes they fail. But always, their goal is to grow.Eventually surrounded by the people they trust Cannon students find their purpose.  Culture is everything at Cannon.
  • People make all the difference.
