The teachers are great! The energy of the school is very positive and a good learning environment. The only thing I would change would be to get better food.

The teacher to student ratio is perfect. There are about 60 kids to a class give or take so class size is only about 20 kids, 30 at absolute most. The teachers care about your learning experience and are very helpful. There are many activities you can participate in and since it's a small school, you can do just about whatever activity you would like as long as you can handle a busy schedule.
I love that canton is a small town. You already know everyone including most of our teachers when you go to school. It is a fun environment to learn in and I am so thankful for having some of the best coaches while I was there as well in track and cross country.
