SCS is an excellent school where the teachers encourage academic excellence, good stewardship and citizenship. Not only do they want a student to acquire an understanding of the material, they want the students to challenge themselves and put forth their best effort. These teachers work diligently to prepare each student for college success. Parents who are unable to support their children academically and are unwilling to support the staff when a child fails to follow clearly defined rules should find a school with a low expectation of success. This school is not a free daycare.

This school is very strict and the staff writes up students for every thing they do. They are kids. Charter schools are not everything that it is advertised to be. Students that should be in special education are put in the regular population. Students are pulled along even if they don't understand. The school does a great job at teaching the MEAP test itself. Also the staff had a 60 percent turn around in the middle of the school year. They've had 3 different principals in 3 years.

This school is amazing. My son started at this school last year and was almost 3 years behind. In one year the staff was able to help catch him up. These teachers are dedicated to their students excelling. I would recommend the school to any parent out there. We had tried a couple if schools/ districts before going here. My son loves his teachers and loved the school atmosphere. It seems as though all the students respect one another.

Attending South Canton Scholars Charter Academy is like receiving a private school education for free. The curriculum is challenging, but the school recognize the strengths and weaknesses in your child and work to strengthen the weaknesses. If your child have mastered a particular subject they are given advanced work. I have three children attending SCS and I'm very pleased. I'm also grateful that parents are welcomed anytime.

My son has been here for 3 years (since opening.) They've gotten better with each year. My son had issues with bullying at a prior school. My son feels safe to protected and has said "they don't allow bullying here." The teachers in 6th grade ARE STELLAR!!! They've been amazing and helpful when some issues have come up for our son. Academically he does great, he gets good grades in class good test scores in MAP & MEAP. I think regardless to the school my son would do well academically. The love and care he recieves is what makes the difference for us. There are great after school programs too like language classes, roborics, art classes etc. Thanks SCS!

Worst school around. Administration is too scared to do anything about discipline or real issues because they are too concerned about how parents will react. Parents run the show and they are running it into the ground. AVOID AT ALL COST.

If your child is not highly motivated to be successful in his or her educational persuits, your child will not be happy at this school. This schools expectations are way above the bar, and will be a challenge for students and parents. Its a newer school with energetic young teachers, MEAP scores have improved each year with only two years with the current students in the system. Expect similar scores to Canton Acheive, and Canton charter Academy within the next few years after students become accustom to higher standards.

Love the school, really pushes kids to learn beyond the public schools. They are strict which is nice. They take pride in the United States and that is a nice change from public schools who dont even allow the flag. Only downside is the social side. Not much for outside activites. I know that is not the most important thing but for kids, it matters. The education really is wonderful. Teachers care and are responsive. They really push parents to be involved, also good. I would suggest the school to anyone!

This is our third charter school attempt and now- NO MORE. I am sick and tired of the teacher turnover. The public schools pay more and so they get the best teachers, then the left-overs get a job at a charter and have no experience. Thank God we moved to Ply-Cant schools so we can attend the public schools now. This Canton Scholars is not interested in the best teachers possible, like all of the other charters, it is interested in banking a buck.
