21 Parent Reviews for Canisius High School

I am a sophomore currently and overall my Canisius experience has been good, but not great. The school is challenging to most kids, and does give 1-2 maybe 3 hours of homework a night. The teachers are very good for the most part but can honestly say that some can AT TIMES be less than eager to help ...  Read more

Could not be happier with our decision to send our boys to Canisius High School. My eldest is very gifted academically and yet was very challenged here. Standards are MUCH higher that NYS Regents standards. My husband is a teacher at another area school as well as a Regents exam reviewer and evaluator ...  Read more

I am currently attending CHS. There are many times when I absolutely love Canisius, but more when I truly loath going through those Blue Doors..The academic aspect is incredible. There are some teachers who are not 'eager' to aid the students, but most are great. There are many problems with drugs, ...  Read more

The administration seemed to perpetually worsen things with unnecessary new rules that only served to aggravate students and teachers. The academics are good, but not exceptional. Although many cite the lack of Regents requirement as an advantage, in my experience (the last year before I left) The math ...  Read more

This school is absolutely terrible! My son went here and hated it. The education is awful. The number of students is way to higgh, the teachers cannot give any individual attention to a student. I gret very much sending my son to Canisius High School.

My son is currently a sophomore at Canisius and we had visited other New York Jesuit high schools before settling on Canisius (my husband's job permitted us to choose NYC or Buffalo) and after touring Regis, Loyola and Xavier in NYC, my son decided on coming to Canisius and staying in Buffalo, and he ...  Read more

I can't say enough to convey how happy I am with Canisius High School. The education my son is receiving is outstanding. The teachers and administrators stress the importance of education, exemplary behavior, and working for others less fortunate. My son loves Canisius, and I'm proud that he attends ...  Read more

I don't know how to describe my Canisius experience in just a few sentances. My older brother went to Canisius and he had a tough time adjusting from public school. Canisius was a bit too rigorous for him. But as I saw him struggle, I also saw him grow. When I first walked into Canisius, I was overwhelmed ...  Read more
