Canon-McMillan Senior High School Reviews

Canon-McMillan High school excels in offering unique classes and an overall impressive academic experience for many. Our school offers a phenomenal special education program. However, I am disappointed in their continuous failure to stand up for the students who need it most. They preach a zero-tolerance policy for hate, but time and time again they allow homophobia and racism to thrive within our school, creating a toxic atmosphere for many minorities.

The school has a wide array of courses ranging from general to AP, with nearly all of the teachers being exceptional at their job. All of the staff members are willing to help students, whether it be academics or life problems. There is an excessive amount of clubs, but it allows every student to find a group they can connect with. Our sports teams train very hard, as evidenced by our many state titles. Our principal is very passionate about the arts. We have been able to make many beautiful things because of his generosity. With our many AP classes, it is easy for students to get the college experience all four years of high school. By the time they get to college, they know what to expect. Every day, there are a half-dozen cops patrolling the building to make every student feels safe. We run through safety drills on the regular to ensure that, we will be prepared. While the food may be questionable and the facilities may smell bad, it is a great place to go to school.
I have been a student at Canon-McMillian Senior High School for almost a full four years and I will only leave with positives towards the school. Our teachers are extremely educated, our administration cares about how their students view certain decisions, and our school lunches have stepped up their game!! It will be an honor to become a Canon Mac Alumni.
