Posted October 29, 2008

I am a graduate of Cannelton City Schools. I feel that my education there was great. Any child that goes to Cannelton can get the same education as children that go to other schools. You get what you put into your education. If you want to learn, then you will learn. As far as parental involvement, it is up to the parent to be involved. My parents were very involved when it came to my education and sports involvement.


Posted December 2, 2006

I have 4 sons currently attending Cannelton City Schools, 1 in elementry, 2 in Middle and 1 in High school. I am pleased with their education, and I am pleased with the attention they recieve from teachers and administration there. They are all good students. That is what is expected from them at home and at school. I am very involved with their learning at home and stay in close contact with the school. Not all parents here get involved but tell me a school where all parents do. My oldest son is a freshman and he is enrolled the the highest level of classes to ready himself for college. All four sons are involved in sports, and many other after school activites.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

About the tests


Indiana uses the A through F School Grading System to assess the overall performance of a school. For the 2011-2012 school year, schools were graded based on performance and participation levels in state standardized tests and student growth using the Indiana Growth Model. In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placment exam results and industry certification exam results.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
