CHS has the feel of a small school trying to be big. There are many great individuals employed there that sincerely have your child's best interest at heart, but there are so many times when that "overall best in Texas exemplary campus status" takes precedence over the individual needs of the student, and those who do not excel in band or its many subdivisions, or football, get shuffled to the back; even those involved in a not so popular sports team or activity. Parent involvement is superior to any that I've ever seen, however, even at an elementary level, it seems as though projects completed by parents are expected. Students who are made to actually work on their own and turn in their own works are often looked over in favor of the polished, professional, and oh-so-obviously-done-the-parent submissions. Many students graduate and then, upon attending college or obtaining a full time job (courtesy of a word from the band director, a favorite celebrity in the community), fall flat on their faces because they haven't a clue how to stand on their own two feet and be made accountable. Yes, their status looks good on paper, but the real outcome is very disappointing.

They only care about the students who excel in school. The ones who need a little help get forgoten and left behind.

Like any other school the academic programs are more challenging and taught more efficiently at the Advanced Placement Level. In the AP classes, the teachers are more involved and the students learn more. Canton excels with its variety of extracurricular activities. For a school of around 500 students, many sports, dance, and band electives are offered. Canton has been ranked the #1 marching band in Texas 3-A for the last 4 years. The only sports Canton does not offer are: Soccer, Swimming, and Wrestling. The coaches emphasize hard work and dedication to school first, and the team second. The Parent involvement is incredible at Canton High School. The parents are so involved with the school that they might as well enroll and attend themselves. It is not uncommon to see parents come to lunch on a daily basis and support whatever activity the school is competing in.

The Canton Schools provide a great environment for children who would like to be envolved in band. The band program is an amazing opprotunity to expand thier horizons and better themselves physically and mentally.
