Canton Academy is the best school ever, the teachers cares for the student's well being and shows concern for each person on a personal level. This school became my family. The environment there was so relaxed and learning was fun as well as challenging in some areas. I played football there and the coaches became my mentor and friend, I don't think there any other school in the area that can beat this school, the majority of the students there were friendly and well mannered for the most part. I enjoyed this school so much, it has provided me with a lifetime of positive life lessons and memories of how people can make a good positive impact in your life. Go Panthers!!!

The academics at this school lack terribly. We transferred here from a public school because the public schools are too large. However, as an educated adult, I cannot say that my child is receiving anything close to college -prep preparedness. The average ACT score is low. My child has already passed that average by several points. The only thing anyone cares about is who the next coach is, can a new student play ball, and the kids going half days to school due to us winning last night. No one is striving to raise their ACT scores at all. If a good teacher is hired, they don't stay long. The pay is not sufficient and they are not supported due to "being too hard." We are pulling back out and going to public schools where the education you get prepares you better.
The school was mostly sports-oriented, and I am more academic. There were no extracurricular opportunities other than sports, and I found that extremely disappointing. There was also little to no diversity in the student body, with most of everyone being sports-centered in their daily lives.
