Canton High School is a very unique place. It combines with Plymouth High School and Salem High School to make what we call PCEP. Here at Plymouth Canton Educational Park (PCEP) we learn as one. Students transfers between the schools for different classes. Thus allowing each student to participate in any class they choose. Having three schools combine into one allows for a lot of diversity. You are able to meet new people everyday. This also allows for a bunch of clubs. If you are looking for a certain club, PCEP has it. If they don't, you are allowed to create your own club! The best part is that each school encourages each other. No matter if it's academics or sports, the schools work together as one. Not only has the education provided prepared me for college, but the walking between schools has too. There are at least 3 police always on campus and many security guards allowing for you to feel safe and secure always.

As I’m writing this, I’m a junior at Canton High School. If you don’t know, Canton is on campus with two other schools, Plymouth and Salem, that, while being a student at one, kay have classes in all three, just two, or just one. I think as a whole Canton is a wonderful environment. Experienced and educated teachers, very diverse, a good demographic of male and female teachers, good lunches and suitable classroom sizes. The curriculum is very wide, with a lot of specific classes for those that have specific passions or interests. Along with that, Canton and the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park as a whole has a very broad range of AP courses to take. Where I believe it lacks is efficiency. For example, some teachers at Canton are very opinionated, and that comes into the classroom. Other than that, I do enjoy the environment of Canton and that of the other schools, despite the workload.
Canton High School completely shaped the person who I am today. From freshman year to senior year, the staff and students that call themselves Canton Chiefs make me proud to call myself one as well. Canton High School taught me to never give up, to will yourself to succeed, and of course, that Chiefs Are Leaders. I will never forget my time at Canton High School. The teachers at Canton High School care so deeply for their students and you can always tell by the passion they have when they teach. Mr. Heard, the principle, is the best principle anyone could ever wish for in a high school. He continues his education, and he makes sure that he is embedded into the lives of the students in the most positive way. He's an influencer, and he influences every Chief that walks through the main doors to achieve greatness.
You do not leave Canton High School as a Follower, you leave as a Leader.
