This school is so horrible. Roaches, uneducated teachers, disengaged office staff. Scabies. Omg we have been here 6 months and have already made the decision to move when schools out. This school took all the kids sweaters, jackets, etc and put them in one large garbage bag during this scabies infestation. Lord help us if they open that bag to return these children's things. An epidemic is what we will have.

I hated when we moved from another state from top of the notch/10 thumbs up school to this area and the Canton Public High School. I pulled my child out his Sr year and he finished studies thru a vocational-training school. He was able to get his diploma, graduate on time and utilize his training for a career. It was terrible in 2005 when my child was going there. Happy to know the state took over. Maybe it will be better. I pray people read the reviews on schools and especially this one before enrolling your child. I would homeschool before I put my other 2 kids here. Happy to have moved from Canton.

I taught there 94-99. This was not a fun job. Don't get me wrong I had some great Kids that went on to college and better things. But they had to leave canton to get there. I taught JROTC. If the school could get rid of the trouble makers things could improve. They don't. They use to send the problem makers to the gym and play basket ball all day. From what I'm reading nothing has changed and maybe has gotten worse. I feel sorry for the children that come there to learn, they are the ones who get short changed.

This school is very very bad! As 2009 and up this school has fallen apart at its feet, they now have all new teachers The good teachers have left the school to the new kids who are coming for the new set of teachers who have to put up with the raggedy administration. Since I've left this school and even when I went to this school, I hated to even impose the fact that I go to CHS. The kids there run this school, favoritism is HUGE for any kind of relationship with a teacher or staff member. The badder you are the more known and praised you are for any and everything. This school has alotta work to be done. State has taken over and eventually the school might have to be shut down like the, Thomastown HS. Bad, incessant play in the office and halls, No one there takes anything serious enough. I dont even want to put one star on the school.

I am also a student at Canton High and I think it is a great school. The academic standards are not all of that, but i believe that the faculty and staff are a great contribution to our school. We just need to tighten up a little bit.

I am a senior at Canton High School, and I think most of the teachers are doing a great job, but as far as students, the beahvior and academics are an embarassment. I feel that way because students seem to not take education serious, some of them constantly fail state tests, and fighting has become a hobby.

I am a senior at Canton High School. Canton High is slowly falling apart. After our graduates in May, Canton High will probably be taken over by the state. =-((

I am a senior at Canton High. I have to say that the principal Cleveland Anderson is doing a wonderful job, and most of the teachers have improved on their quality as well. However, controlling the students seems much harder than it has been the past few years; fights break out often. If the parents became more involved in their child's social and school life, I'm sure this school would become more attractive to those living in the surrounding areas.

I'm a student here at Canton High School. I would like to say that the educational process here has improved drastically. relationships between students have also improved. If Canton High School had more programs for leadership and academics than other non-educational extracurriculars, this school would be perfect to attract others in this district to Canton High.
