I am a CCHS Alum. If this review could keep 1 person from going to Cannon County High, I feel I have done my job to its highest degree. I graduated CCHS in 2011, with little-to-no appreciation for knowledge or the student body of whom I still keep in touch with...one of. I am now a college graduate, with an appreciation for "the other side of the story" (being, the teachers.) I have no beef with any particular teacher from CCHS, so I don't want it to come across like I have. However, the fact is CCHS is filled with teachers who have "Given up." Daily they are faced with hundreds of students who don't care about school, education, or respecting their teachers. The vast majority of my class didn't go to college but instead went on to work as farmers, mechanics ect. Don't let that come across as an unappreciation for the blue collar community, quite the opposite actually. The students don't appreciate school because they already know what they want to do, which is often a blue collar job that requires little education...so why would they pay attention in school? I cannot help but blame a broken system.

This school is BEYOND horrible. The bullying is utterly ignored. The teachers discriminate. They encourage this behavior in students in spite of the "anti bullying policy" which is a complete joke. The principle rarely addresses the issue and on the rare occasions when he does, he does NOT take measures to ensure that there is no retaliation for reporting bullying. In fact, the students just make it worse on the one who reports it. However, it doesn't seem to be isolated to just the high school. It is county wide and equally ignored. The bullying resulted in homeschooling our middle school child. This has been the behavior in the district for the entire duration of my children's education. (our oldest graduated 2 years ago). There is no hope here.

The high school is not my favorite at all. The students and teachers (not all, but majority) have the 1930's mentality. I understand and acknowledge the history of Cannon County, however ; equality isn't practiced much in this rural part of Tennessee. Not everyone is bad, but the ones that are take away the experience for learning and socializing. Being a minority, from what I've seen, is practically being some sort of outsider that is to be kept away from others.

I put my child in homeschooling after she went here. The school's attendance office lost it's mind. I'd take my child to school and I'd get a call shortly after saying my child wasn't there. I'd even send E-mails to her teachers to check, and they told me she was in class. It's ridiculous.

I loved the small school feeling at CCHS, until there became a problem with bullying. My child has been called names and made fun of daily. Currently there is no policy for this behavior. We need to teach our children to take a stand and not allow bullies in our schools. If the school cannot write a policy it will be up to the parents to stand up for our kids. We need parents who will set an example for our children by standing up for them and all the ones to afraid to speak out.

cchs is a great school. I played football, baseball, and I went to a lot of the basketball games. I graduated in 2007 and the school has changed a lot since then. The teachers there are amazing. They care a lot about each and every student. The school offers a lot of sports and clubs we have. The best FFA program in the state it is excellent our BETA and JR BETA go to nationals every year that I know off. As for sports we have football, basketball, tennis, soccer, volleyball, softball. And if you get involved in any of these programs the community will respect you and notice you. By the end of 2012 6 out 8 of my brothers and sisters will have graduated from CCHS. I could write about this school for hours and hours cause this school and community has done a lot for me. -Franz Walkup

My granddaughter is a 2nd yr. student at CCHS this yr. Last yr. I wrote on this web site about my concerns for her safety there because of all the bullying & harrassment she had to endure on a daily basis. Same thing again this year, same crying out to her teachers, coach, the principal and school board for help. Same lack of concern. With the same problems year after year and allowing same bunch of troublemakers to attend year after year, it's obvious that getting any kind of help at the local level is a waste of time. So it's time to go national. TV, radio, newspaper. I urge you. Whatever it takes to bring this matter to the forefront to keep our kids safe at Cannon County High School. Get out there and contact these folks. Thank you and God Bless!

I graduated from Cannon County in May, and I must say that as far as the teachers go, most of them are wonderful. The majority of the teachers are caring, intelligent, and are determined to help their students succeed. Of course there are always a few who could use improvement. The atmosphere is that of a large family. I'm not saying everyone gets along, but it would be insane to expect that. My senior year, the school witnessed a tragedy and everyone pulled together to make it through. It's true that CCHS is not the most greatly funded school, but that isn't up to them. It's up to the government. And yes, students get rowdy at sports events, but guess what, it's because they're' kids! So, if you're looking for a school where your child will be taught by teachers who will help them succeed, I strongly suggest CCHS!

I believe Cannon County High School is wonderful. The teachers are caring and knowledgeable. The students truly care for each other. My son says it is a big family.

I attended cannon county high school from freshman year and graduated a lion in may of 2005 and I loved it. I like the idea that the teachers can know their students on a more friendly basic. As for the teachers, they were all great. -Anonymous

My kids went to Cannon County schools. Academically, the schools were very good. The high school Math and English programs were superior, science was also, until the teacher found a better paying job elsewhere. The music program was horrible. I was so disappointed as to the support the school board, community, and parents gave the program. I was also disappointed as to the methods the band director used to teach music. It's was a sad/happy day when we moved from CAnnon County. Loved the people / the schools didn't offer alot of education opportunities.

I do not know how any parent can say such things about a school that his or her child is attending. I am proud to say that I go to Cannon High and will graduate in the fall. I have learned so much at my school because of the small setting and close student-teacher relationships. Anyone can sit on the sidelines of a basketball game and see the students being rowdy. Go to any high school game. As for the education, we have some of the most caring teachers of any school. They listen, come in early, stay late, go over quizzes, or help in any way they can. Sometimes, it is about the effort put forth by the student. Our teachers do not deserve to be put down. The negative comments do not help the school or the students. I have pride in Cannon County High School.

Ok I went to CCHS, I had some of the best times of my life while attending there,but very few were in the class room. I had some great teachers but they never had enough resorces to anything. So as for the education part I would rather send my childern to a better funded school.

Having graduated from Cannon County High School and now having my child attend elsewhere, I know I made the right decision. If you like small town gossip and board members who don't listen to your opinion, then you've come to the right place. They have good teachers at Cannon County High School but I can say I am very disappointed with their extracurricular activities. They have started getting more in the last 5 years but if you want your child to be inclined in music and go further with getting a music scholarship, go elsewhere. It's sad that the board members feel one person should teach it to all the schools (grammer schools,also)and still teach their children the basics in high school when they should've learned it years ago. I take music seriously. It's not just a room to throw your child in because they need a credit.

I am very proud of CCHS. I am a product of CCHS, and I have chosen to return here to teach. We are a small school where we love and care for each other. We have many successful graduates who have gone on to major universities, technical schools, US military, and directly into the work force. We encourage our students to work toward lifelong goals and dreams.

I think CCHS is the best school ever. About the discipline, if you asked me, it has too much. Some of the students need a break sometimes too. But the sports and epically the FUND-RAISING, is guite elegant. CCHS is filled with many talented people. This school is overflowing with many different groups, sports and activites, your child could not get bored. CCHS has a very friendly enviroment, and has many friendly faces, due to its small size.

Cannon County High is a great school. It is a small setting so you can get to know your teachers, i know because i go to the school. I recommend this school. And as for the person who said that it is a horrible school, is just plain wrong. they say that they saw some students behaving badly at a basketball game. They see a few people act badly and they think that everyone is like that. And as for thier child learning the basics, they teach what they can with what they are given. If they have a problem with what is being taught then they should contact the government so that they can make a difference instead of just pointing the finger. Its easy to complain, but it takes a lot more to make a difference. -Andy D.

How do you expect a school with little funding to teach more than just the basics??? I just have to say that with the population in Cannon County growing we have to focus more on rebuilding so that we can accomidate the for the over populated High school. So if you say that CCHS is a bad school then complain to your state representative. The teachers are qualified to teach the more advanced subjects if we had the material. As for the students.... Don't hold all us students accountable for what a group of our peers happen to do.

Cannon County is a terrible school. I have recently witnessed Cannon County's students at a basketball game. As a parent who has their child in the school it is a disgrace to be known as a member of the school. I am disappionted I put my daughter in a school that shows so much disrespect, and she has only learned basics. I do not recommend this school!

Cannon county is better for it is a smaller school so the parents and teachers have a really good relationship and the teachers and students have good relationship. There are more teachers to help the students since there are less of them.
