Though the campus of this school is enormous, it is a place to make lots of connections and friends. Teachers are veru friendly and helpful whether it is education related or personal. As a student I felt very welcomed in this school. I would recomend anyone to come to Canton High School.We have over 200 clubs and a very diverse group of students. We even have CTE course which is amazing because as a student who wants to go the medial feild, these course really helped me prepare for my future. Our school is LGBTQ+ friendly, all doors are open! I really loved this school! Go Chiefs!

I absolutely loved Canton High School. I met some of my best friends and favorite teachers there. I had so many options of classes to take, and my guidance counselor helped me create a schedule I loved. It is very inclusive and there are tons of opportunities to get involved. I even had the opportunity to travel to South America with my Spanish class. I ran Track and Field throughout high school and had the most motivating and supportive coaches in the world.
There is a lot of school spirit throughout the school and its students. I loved my high school and would not trade my high school experience for the world!
Attending Canton High School has definitely changed my perspective on our society and education. Being a student at 'the park', I have become part of something bigger than myself. I am part of a community of over 6,000 students, whose races, ethnicities, backgrounds, and histories are all different from my own. I get to walk to class and see new faces every day, while still getting to make friends and create relationships which I could never forget. I feel I have maximized my education while attending Canton, and have gotten the opportunity to take classes specified to my interests, and have made close friendships with many of my teachers. I have Canton High School to thank for all of my achievements and hope to watch PCEP continue to flourish.
