I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this school!!!! They may rate it a three but I think its an amazing school. The staff are nice and they will help you when you ask for it. They also dont pressure you with 7-8 pages of homework, no homework on weekends(occasionally). We have good sceduals and school ends at 3:11 and it feels like im in school for only a half hour. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL.

I am a student at Helen C. Cannon Junior High School. I love my school, even if it's a little ghetto.. What public school in Vegas isn't? Most of my teachers are there for me, not the money. Cannon is a great school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
