Canton Public Schools Reviews

Being in Canton Public Schools since 2nd grade I felt that I I could say I grew up in Canton. Everything was great except that I feel that I did not have the experience as other individuals had in their high school. I felt that I really did not have a place. I felt that everyone in Canton High School (my class) was not as connected as much. If I had to redo high school I would want to do it in another district. Besides that, I do believe that elementary, middle and high school had great teachers who cared for their students.

I am very proud to come from The Canton Public Schools. The schools are filled with wonderful, hard-working teachers and very creative and well-rounded students. I would love to see them institute after-school enrichment programs at the elementary schools. Otherwise, no complaints.
The best part was developing relationships with my friends and teachers. I would change the guidance department to be more supportive of students.
