Cannonsburg Elementary School5

Both my boys went to this school last year and they were so pleased we all hate that they have to be leaving this year. They do focus on the kids walking in a straight line and keeping themselves to themselves but it is important that children learn to follow rules and learn about consequences at an early age. The teachers were excellent! My youngest had Mrs. Justice for Kindergarten and he loved her to death! She was very sweet and really cared about his education. Mrs. Barber was my oldest sons teacher and she was great too! My youngest has a speech problem and they really cared about helping him work through his troubles with speech. If I had to say something negative about the school it would be the lack of space in the tiny gym during school functions. I wish there was a way for them to stay in this school but it's not possible. I will recommend this school to anyone who asks!
I went to school here. I received a great education, INCLUDING practical living skills, such as how to follow procedures, respecting others' property, etc. I doubt that the reviewer who wrote about procedures understands that there is MORE to an education than a pencil/paper test. I'm sure the teachers feel that they didn't spend their time and money on college just to teach children how to walk in a quiet straight line. You may feel a bit differently when little Johnny "accidentally" rips your grandson's A+ paper off the wall.
Cannonsburg Elementary is behind in academics according to the KCCT results. I have a grandson attending there and the staff seems to be more concerned with the students walking in a straight line when in the hallway, not talking when in line, and let's no forget please don't touch the wall while walking in line. If they where more concerned in the teaching of their students instead of things like this maybe their scores would be higher.
Cannonsburg is a great elementary that goes above and beyond to service its gifted students. The academic team is a great experience for the children that really forces them to think outside the box. They also take the students on a lot of field trips which I feel is important for growing learners. Experiencing things first hand makes for a much more memorable learning experience.
