I really enjoy being a part of the community at Canton High School. I played football and lacrosse, the sports programs have been my favorite part about High School. The coaches truly care and have helped keep me motivated on the field as well as academically. So much diversity and clubs, everyone finds a home at Canton High. I have made great relationships with some of the best teachers. Always setting aside time to help students out. The faculty and students are very supportive of each other. Helping one another out and cheering each other on at the games, whether it’s football, hockey, lacrosse, baseball or field hockey. I will truly miss it when I graduate.

Some departments were severely lacking good teachers, however there were a few that really got me through my high school experience. The guidance department was not very helpful, especially through the college application process. Academically, the school was fairly strong but had a severe lack of funding in the arts department.
I had such a wonderful experience at Canton High School. I felt very supported by the majority of my teachers and made very strong connections with them. Sports and performing arts get similar attention(I was a member of both). The math and robotics teams are still forgotten about despite their great success. Our principal does his best, and makes every club and team feel welcome and supported. There is definitely some diversity here but the minorities unfortunately get often overlooked. I wish we had a little more school spirit. I felt as though I had so much opportunity here and I could accomplish anything I put my mind to. I had amazing friends, teachers, and experiences and will miss CHS very much.
