    North Canton Elementary has some of the most dedicated hard working and compassionate teachers in Haywood County. I have had 3 children receive a great education at this school. The teachers spend many hours outside the normal school day planning and preparing to do their best. Just go by the parking lot at 6 am or at 6pm and you will see teachers' cars parked putting in extra time. The staff vilunteers to offers extra programs to enrich student's education health and responsibility through programs such as Battle of the Books girls fitness club Safety Patrol chorus etc. Mr. Barbee has worked hard to build morale and improve discipline teacher standards and increase teacher/parent and student expectations. He has also makes sure that the school though one of the oldest in the county remains well kept. Ask any SUPPORTIVE parent and they will tell you that teachers and staff go above and beyond to provide the best education possible for all students. The PTO is ine if the best as well providing staff support and fundraising to help provide more technology.

    Mr. Barbee has been there for almost 2 years now. His goal is to "whip teachers into shape" The school has a low morale and most complaints are ignored by the administration. My son has been bullied repeatedly by the same boy since kindergarten. Only after several reports and witnesses seeing the bully hitting my child on the bus was the principal made aware. What he told us then was boys will be boys. Even though my son did nothing wrong and got in trouble for changing seats on the bus to get away from the bully. His current teacher has sent home the wrong report card. Which has not been fixed. Most of the teachers there are nice and pleasant. But they don't follow updated teacher standards. They do have a 6 rating for a reason. The only thing saving this school is the parent involvement from the community.

    North Canton Elementary is a fantastic school. My Kindergartner has done very well there. The principal & all the teachers I have met have a genuine love for the children which means so much to me as a parent. My daughter's class has 2 special needs children but this has not hindered her learning - she is excelling in all areas! North Canton has a true since of community. It is a wonderful atmosphere for a child's learning - no matter what level they are on.

    North Canton School has a positive attitude towards its students and are very helpful and considerate of the parents. I have been very impressed with the professional approach they have towards the well-being of the students. They actually care about the students and not just about the numbers.

    This school has impressed me with the safety of its students. When you walk in the doors its inviting and everyone is smiling a welcome. The teachers are open and friendly and invite questions and concerns. The staff is extremely helpful with enrolling we came from out of state. My kids smile and are running out the door in the morning eager to go to school. Wish every school made them feel this way. Thanks.
