It was a very great experience overall! There are many extracurricular activities for everyone to be involved in whether it is a sport or a club. Teachers did a great job of helping students with academics and getting to know them. Prepared for college by offering college level classes and more.

I would like to see a better college path. I feel as though Canton High School did not prepare me very well for college. I feel like advisers and administration should do more to help the students prepare for college. If you want to go into agriculture or a trade of sorts, then the high school is great. However, it does not do much for the kids who do not wish to pursue jobs that can be found in a small town. When I got to college, I had no idea there were so many different areas of studies with all sorts of different specifications because CHS didn't give me the tools to explore different paths of life
Canton High School has been trying to change a lot in the past few years. Depending on what kind of student you are, you will all have a different experience. The school does try to make sure that everyone is okay and helps out. One thing they have done very good at is making sure that kids who have less, get more. They have started a food pantry and giving out food bags, even during COVID-19.
