Canton School District Reviews

Canton High School was a great experience for me. For nearly five years in a row, CHS was ranked in the top 10 high schools in Connecticut as well as top 100 high schools in the nation. This high school offered courses that stretched from personal finance to even guitar classes. Canton high had a mission to spark interests for students that didn't exactly shine in your traditional high school courses. Guidance counselors kept students involved and actively interested in their journey and future. The staff were very strongly educated and easy to make close connections with. I had moved into Canton High School as a sophomore and my entire view on high school had changed. I also played a vital role in our history making football season. Overall a great experience and I would tell anyone interested in Connecticut to move to Canton.

Does not value the well being of its students. A school system that cares a lot more about their appearance and reputation than real values, or making sure students feel comfortable and are getting a well rounded education. Teachers indolent; most of them just have students working out of workbooks for the entire year rather than actually engaging with their classrooms.
I love the personal connection that can be made between students and teachers in this district across the board. I believe the administration (principals) could improve their connection with the students at a couple of the schools.
