My experience with the Canton Public School District varies as I have been a student of the district for 12 years. Elementary school, in my opinion, were the best and easiest years in school because of the fact that everything was basically laid out for us. Middle school was alright although slightly harder than elementary. Finally high school, I feel as if senior year is the hardest because they are preparing us for the real world and college. Canton Public Schools District have a lot of strict rules, nasty lunch, but its a great school to get an education.
My overall experience at Canton High School is preeminent . I initially started school in Canton Public School district in 2011 . I started high school in 2014 . Even though I was accustomed to the district , it was still a very new experience for me . Canton High School has taught me a plethora amount of things in the 4 years I have attended .I encountered friends that I will always love and cherish . I have memories that I will one day be able to allocate with my children. The teachers at Canton High School have taught me how to strive to be the best at whatever I do .The experience of being in classes with seniors meant everything to me . I felt vigorous knowing I capable of comprehending the same work as someone way ahead of me . High school taught me that my experiences may have influenced who I am, but I am fully responsible for what I become .
