Great district with good college ready academics. This school is one of the best in East Texas. Sports are always competitive and the teachers and coaches are good. Fine arts are ok but watch out for the band parents. A few of them are psycho. Choir and theater are awesome. Discipline is good and what kids need these days. If your a parent that coddles your kid and blames teachers and administrators for their problems, they won't make it here. Glad my kids graduated from here!
Canton ISD is one of the better districts in our county. Academics are emphasized and teacher and parental involvement is above average. It is a small-town school, so can be very political in things. It would be nice to see more courses offered to help with career readiness, including law enforcement, fire fighting, real estate, and the trades...maybe welding, plumbing, electrical, etc.
