Canton Middle was a very poorly run, dangerous school. My daughter learned almost no math at all in 2 years and had a difficult time in high school catching up. The students at this school make so much noise in the classrooms that teachers started showing movies like Men in Black, Big Momma's House, Barbershop etc. instead of having class. The following year, there was a new staff, but the discipline problems were still there. The art teacher got hospitalized, books were thrown out windows and foods fights were commonplace. My daughter had a 12th grade reading level and was in the same class as kids with 3rd grade reading levels. This school offers nothing to kids who want to learn. This school is not diverse ethnically or racially, it does not offer foreign language, art or music. No stars for Canton.
