Canton High School Reviews
Rating 3.58 out of 5 98 reviews
My experience at CHS is different compared to most people. I was a freshman during covid, so my freshman, sophomore, and even junior year weren't "normal". But for the most part, the staff was very accommodating for their students while everyone was getting back in the swing of things. CHS has approachable teachers that want to see their student success. Also, theres a place for everyone here whether it's joining a sports team, club, or theater. Wherever you end up at CHS, will be meant to be and trust me, you'll enjoy your time here!
Canton High School is a brilliant school, with many great teachers and tons of activities. They value academics as well as athletics, and the overall well-being of their students. Clubs such as best buddies and the Canton Character Crew do great work for the community around them. There are great classes as well, with a great music program that I am a part of. The athletics have been very successful especially recently, with four state championships in the past three years. Beautiful classrooms and high tech teaching styles highlight what makes learning at Canton High School amazing. We have great school pride, with a spirit week ever year that almost all students participate in. The Pep rally is also a fan favorite. School can sometimes get monotonous, but I truly believe that Canton High School has the best teachers around to keep the curriculum interesting. AP and other challenging courses are also offered, showing the dedication. Canton High really cares about their students.
Canton High School has been an overall great experience that has helped me to broaden my horizons and improve my education. More can be done at the school to inspire self-reflection and self-motivated academic growth amongst students that isn't purely driven by grades or prestige, but the environment is supportive and welcoming.
