Canton Middle School was incorporated by the Canton Board of Education in 2004 to implement the
best educational practices for Canton's early adolescents. The school comprises grades 7 and 8
and will serve approximately 271 students in 2012-2013. Canton Middle School was extremely proud to
be named the Connecticut Association of Schools Middle School of the Year – 2009-2010.
Students in Canton Middle School are divided into one of three interdisciplinary teams.
Each student is part of an advisory group, led by a faculty advisor. All students take a
core academic program (English, science, social studies and math) with over 75% electing a world
language. There is a broad range of courses in the various arts, including band, chorus,
technology education, computer, art, and FACS. A wide ranging co-curricular and athletic program
is maintained as an integral part of the school's mission.
