The Canton Public Schools unite with families and the community to provide challenging educational experiences and opportunities that develop the intellectual, physical, social and emotional potential of our students.
Our mission is to prepare productive, tolerant and responsible citizens with the character and independence to embrace and contribute to the world.
Together We Make a Difference
We commit ourselves to using innovative as well as research-based ideas to: • promote high student achievement • practice focused educational leadership • make sound financial choices
We accept this challenge and invite our stakeholders to join us in transforming this vision into reality.
Individually and collectively the Community, Families, Faculty, and the Canton Board of Education hold these values for themselves and for the children they serve.
All children deserve an educational environment where they are:
… valued for themselves as unique individuals … treated with love, respect, and care by their educators and peers … guided and taught to challenge themselves in ways that stretch them as individuals …provided a safe environment in which to learn, take risks, and excel
All children shall have the benefit of:
…high quality resources …exposure to varied opportunities to inspire all the various aspects of their academic, intellectual, and social interests …a community that understands the value of its supportive role in ensuring the tradition of a strong educational legacy for each generation of students
All children are entitled to a childhood.
