Canton school system is a joke, they have iep for those having a hard time that cater to their needs, but the giep allows for 2 hours a week in a gifted class. Unlike the iep, the giep does not give special consideration for tests homework etc. The school tries to raise your kids. Canton elementary had a copy of a custody agreement yet let the non custodial parent withdraw students from the school, and then fined the custodial parent for not having the kids in school. The learning leaves a lot to be desired, kids are passed just to be passed, there are not even enough books for every student Seriously stay away

If it wasn't for the administration, this school might not be as bad as it is. Truth is that rules are based on who you are related to rather than being based on an honest and fair system. The materials are also outdated and substandard and if faculty offers any new ideas they are quickly dismissed. Do yourself a favor and stay as far from CASD as you can.

I'm a recent graduate from Canton, and honestly I can say I wasn't very well prepared for what came next. I attend a very challenging college and it opened my eyes to the fact that I was not challenged at all in high school. I had to learn how to study in college, which is something I never did in high school because I never really had to study since the material was so easy. I think that Canton needs to learn to challenge their students more and really try to cram as much knowledge into us as possible. Or at least give this opportunity to the students who care about their education and future, and want to not only excel, but also succeed.

Canton is a good school and the teachers are there for the students.Sports are important but an education is also important and I think you can get both here.

I'm not a parent at this school. However, I am a student, and would like to give a review on my school for parents or any other person whom is considering going to this school. Though some of my words may be harsh, this is how I feel. I feel that our school is focused on only one thing. And that's sports. Students who are involved in sports are favored more over others who are not. I believe that many things that happen in this school are unfair, many rules are unfair, and many people are unfair.

I am an 8th grade student at canton. I think canton is a terrific school. we have the best teachers we could ever have, we make friends with all the teachers, and students. for the people who think that their students arnt getting good grades is because of the teachers theyre wrong. the teachers try to help us but if we dont go to them how would they know that we are having trouble with whatever we are have problems with? my teachers try to help me as much as they can! I never want to move from this school. if I would have to Canton Jr/Sr high would be my favorite school out of all.

My daughter graduated in 2004. As you can see, the test scores for this school are not the greatest. This is a rural and poor community without much for the kids to do. There were several teen pregnancies during her matriculation and it was very difficult to resolve problems within the adminstration. She has had to take remedial courses in college and overall I was very dissapointed with her experience in this school. There is a new principal and a new superintendent and I hope they can work on improving the quality of education here.
