My experience throughout my high school career in Canton South High School was very good! In terms of academics and sports, it was very great! I loved the majority of my teachers (although there are some that aren't the best), my sports involvement, friends, and more. The only main downside I can think of with CSHS is the facilities and the school itself. There are holes in the leaky ceilings, ceiling panels falling out, floods, ect. But with the creation of the new school, these problems will most likely be obsolete for the time coming. If not for the old school, I would have totally given 5 stars!

Canton South High School is an average school, however, there are a few shining stars that made my experience there more than bearable. Their English and Foreign Language departments have dedicated, talented educators working to ensure their students succeed.

Most of all, community is Canton South High School's focal point. They know they wouldn't be where they are without the people who live in Canton South. They understand the importance of knowing and loving where you come from - and staying true to the people within it.

But, if you're not popular or have overly-involved parents, you're not going to be privy to all the resources and chances those that are, are given. It lacks diversity, but overall, it isn't an awful school. I think that they're still developing, it's a work in process, and hopefully, it will get there some day.

I was lucky to go to Canton South High School, I know I'm prepared for the world beyond education - even if I had to eat the food to get there.
Canton South High School used to be a desirable school. However, with the cut in dual-enrollment and advance placement courses, along with the retiring and rehiring of the same teachers, I believe the education is now lacking. I attended Canton Local Schools from Kindergarten through high school, as did most of my family.
