Cannon Elementary is a GCISD school. It's within a great school system. They are an elementary STEM school. AND every child, K-5 take home iPads everyday. When we moved to this area and was assigned to Cannon, we had no idea how innovative this school was. The children have individualized assignments, as well as work teams, which is a good simulation of the real world. The principal is laser focused on education. The assistant principal is nurturing. They make a great team. Parents are down to earth and teachers are approachable. As a former private school parent, I'll tell you, this school gives me no reason to go back.
Cannon Elementary's teachers, principal and staff are a great asset and this school deserves recognition beyond the 'stats' that are used to rate schools. The STEM program, dual-language options and GT classes make it a great place for kids. 2 of my kids have been through K-5 at Cannon and the third one enthusiastic attending now.
Absolutely love this school. STEM, Dual Language, 1 to 1 iPad initiative. Cannon has so much to offer our daughter. We love the diversity.
What an outstanding place to send your child. Both my son and daughter go here and I have nothing but good things to say. There are so many after school activities and clubs as well as great projects my kids are involved with its staggering. The principal Mrs Blizzard (formerly Taylor) is great and is really leading this school in a positive direction with STEM education, Bi Lingual curriculum and, in championing the school by seeking grant money and supporting Cannon's awesome robotics team. There is always something happening here. So many of the parents I know who have children here are involved in some way. There is a very active watchdogs program where dad's can come volunteer and be part of their child's day. I've done it a few times and am thrilled with the interaction I have with their teachers. There are so many great, caring teachers at Cannon I feel blessed that my kids are there.
This school really deserves a higher rating and in time it will show. I am so impressed with how this school runs like a well-oiled machine! It has a lot to say about the Principal and her dedication to our children and her amazing staff. Every child has their own ipad that they take home which is unheard of! As well as the STEM program they offer. My child is so excited to get to school, just absorbing as much as possible and loving it! There's nowhere else we'd like to be. we are definitely at the right school!
My son has been at Cannon since 1st grade.....today he starts his first day of 5th grade. He has had the best experience here at Cannon. I have had excellent communication each year with every teacher he has been involved with. Mrs. Blizzard has always done a phenominal job leading this school. He has counsellors that genuinely care. I can't say enough positive things about Cannon!
My son has been in this school for three years. All of his teachers were great! The Principal is also doing a fantastic job on education in this school!
It's sad that this school wants to diagnose and medicate little boys because they are a challenge and require teachers to actually teach. The principal get an D- for poor parent communication and lying to cover up their mistakes.
Makes me sad to see this great school rated lower than others around. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, we have had our kids in other schools in this district and they don't begin to compare with Cannon. Strong leader with creative vision and is always bringing new opportunities forward for our kids that they couldn't get anywhere else. We love Cannon and so do our 3 kids!
The teachers are great and the education my child receives is greater than it would be at most other schools.
My granddaughter is smarter than the average bear thanks to the great education received at Cannon Elementary. :-)
My son has been in this school for the past year and i have to say thank you Cannon, his first grade teacher and the whole school staff are the best of the best.
Just move in from other state and there are no negative things about this school, Tim the principal is great with kids an the whole staff is wonderful.
Awesome school! I couldn't ask for a better place for both of my children to attend school. There's a lot of diversity in the student body. This school really has it together. Its one of the top schools in the area. We couldn't be more pleased here!
Good School with dedicted teachers, some teachers are very young and clearly are still developing skill, however they are caring and kind. Principal is hard to reach and seems to stand back but must be a strong leader for school to be so strong.
Principal is very supportive and interested in best education for child.
