One of the few minority students that went here. Was moved to sit with other minority students in all my classes and was subject to subliminal racism from the teachers. Students harbored strong resentment towards me for "not being white" and I was frequently told to get a dictionary and learn english from the gym teachers. I don't know what other world these other guys are in, but I for one, am glad that I moved. Enjoy this school if you can. The teachers overall are very helpful but it's not worth the trouble.

I am a former student, and at the school they put aside students with high academics, but praised athletes.

I have an an excellent experience with CMHS. I can't say anything bad. The faculty works very hard with each student's individual learning needs.

I'm a current student there and I love it. The new principal, Mr. David Helinski, has really done a phenomenal job. He's brought a sense of pride to the school that it didn't have before he got here. The school is a lot more disciplined but he also knows how to have fun

I graduated from Canon Mac in 2001, and I loved it there. I am now teaching in Florida, and I have to say that the education in PA is excellent in comparison to other states. Canon Mac had teachers that cared immensely about their students, took the time to show them new things and also made time for fun.

Academics are strong overall, especially in the areas of science and English; somewhat weak in the area of math. Staff involvement and interaction with students is excellent. Wide variety of extracurricular options - there is definitely something for everyone. Sports could focus a little less on football, a common theme among all schools. Administration is very accessible and supportive of parents.

For a school its size, it is okay. One of the problems is the school board. Safety is a concern and again it goes back to the school board. Our child attended high school and was bored most of the time. Classes did not challenge him, he did get accepted to college. Don't go here for sport unless it is wrestling or football. They don't really support other sports like swimming or cross country.

I can't say enough about Canon McMillan. From the elementary schools to the high school this district all around is just great. The majority of parents in this community are very involved and the quality of the academics here is outstanding. The teachers care about their studens and you can tell. Anything that your child may want to get involved in is offered here! I give this school 1000 stars!
