    We have two children at Canton Middle - one in 8th and one in 6th. The Principal and teachers are wonderful. The teachers really take an interest in each of their students and care if they succeed or not. Great learning environment for the average student as well as gifted children.

    We have two children at Canton Middle and one more to go. Over all our experience here has been a positive one. Teachers seem to communicate well with the parents and when problems have been taken to the principal or vice principal they have taken care of them to the best of their abilities.
