     Welcome to Canton Middle School!

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.
