As a gay highschool student I feel very unsafe because of both the students, teachers, and administrations. Students have called me names and I’ve been told that I’m going to hell multiple times, I even had a teacher say similar things, the teachers (with the exception of few) have rarely done anything to stop this, partly because of lack of awareness and partly ignorance. After arriving as a freshman I felt unsafe and I immediately addressed the administration, and am still fighting to be heard. This has been quite regressive to my wellbeing and if perhaps I had come in as a straight student I could have been heard and better respected by the students, teachers, and administrators. On the other hand, I wont give Cannon a zero because the quality of education is quite good. The teachers are qualified and ready to teach students. Other than Cannon’s regressive approach to diversity, it is a quite good school.

Cannon School is an excellent school. I have been attending for 2 years and am now a senior and I can truly say Cannon has prepared me for college. The courses are rigorous and the teachers are amazing. Cannon pushes self sufficiency and proper time management, they give you a lot of free time which forces students to find the proper balance of having a social life and good study habits. Cannon's student body isn't very big so everybody there feels like family. Students typically know everybody and are very inclusive so nobody feels left. If you are even considering placing your child in a private school, no matter the grade, I think Cannon is a fantastic option. I can honestly say switching from a public school to Cannon was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I attended Cannon from Jr K to 12th grade and it became like home to me. My teachers were so kind, and would recognize me when I would visit them years later. Cannon provides many leadership opportunities should you want them, and it is held in very high esteem by colleges and helped get me into Johns Hopkins University.
