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.

Fantastic Start to the Year
We have had an excellent start to the 2014-15 school year! Thank you to our office staff, teachers, paraprofessionals, tutors, custodians and cafeteria staff who all worked together as a team to make sure that the building was ready for 7th and 8th graders. Everyone put a great deal of thought into making sure that each and every student was welcomed to CMS. We appreciate all of the preparation families undertook for a smooth start as well. Please be sure to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
7th Grade Physicals
Every child must have an up-to-date physical for 7th grade. Please send these forms to our Health Office as soon as possible.
