Upper School students:
- Every five years, Cannon School has an opportunity to reflect on our teaching and learning, our community, our programs, etc. Through this reflection, the school creates a written report and comes up with goals as a school. Because we are an independent school, we are not held to the same guidelines as public schools, but we are held to strict standards agreed upon by independent school organizations..
- A Visiting Team of educators will visit our school, take the report we have written, and do an objective assessment on what we do at Cannon. This team includes other Heads of Schools, Deans, and teachers.
- This year, the Visiting Team will be here on April 21st and 22nd and may be meeting with students, teachers, and parents. They will be visiting our campus, dropping into classes, and will be present in hallways.
- After they leave, they will write a report. That report will commend us on what we are doing well and will offer us things to work on in the next five years. The next team (five years from now) will ask us how we grew as a school based on the last report. We will be reaccredited through this process-this is a really big deal!
- If you are asked a question or you interact spontaneously with a Visiting Team member, just be honest and respectful – remember that you are representing Cannon and will be seen as a representative of our student body.
This is an important process, and we want to be sure that the visiting team sees our day-to-day school operations in the best possible light. In other words, be yourself, proceed
“as usual,” but understand that visitors will take away impressions of our school based on our actions and words that day. We have an amazing school and we want that message to come across in how we “do school” those days. The goal is for our school to be reaccredited and appreciated for its unique strengths.
