Canton High School Reviews

As a alumni of Canton High School there are many different things I look back at now that prepared me for my future endeavors. One of the many things I enjoyed at Canton High School was the amount of options we had wether it be with classes, sports or even clubs we had such a wide variety. Another thing that stuck out to me at Canton was the fact that the teachers were always so supportive and ready to help you. One thing I was that they would change would be college preparation. I believe that I was academically ready for college after leaving highschool, but everything outside of of academics I believe I had less knowledge about and wish that was one thing that could change for future students.

I always loved going to school. I would like to see more diverse clubs and more support to start new clubs. The teachers need to be more willing to help with college in order for students to succeed. I love Canton and the community support the schools will have. I will always be a Little Giant.
The administration is not afraid to punish someone if they get in trouble, however not everyone who gets in trouble deserves it. Many times its for very minor dress code infractions (wearing shorts that are too short by an inch, tank tops are two fingers across instead of three, etc.), instead of the much more prominent issue of the presence of drugs or alcohol. There have been multiple times where people have been taken out on stretchers because they took some kind of drug that their body couldn't handle. However, I never saw people getting in trouble for drugs and drug sniffing dogs were only brought in about once a year.
