School Information


Welcome to Canton Middle School! 

We are dedicated to providing a supportive and enriching environment that empowers students on their journey to be a healthy, happy and wise person.  With a focus on social-emotional learning and student-led activities, CMS encourages students to find their voice.  As important, we encourage students to have a positive impact on their community and the world.  Our knowledge and skills are at their best when they are employed for the betterment of others.

We are fortunate to have close relationships with our fellow Canton schools that allow us to make a smooth transition into middle school and ensure our students leave ready for high school.  The coursework, classes and experiences are designed to be a part of a continuum that moves students towards achieving our district’s vision of a graduate.  

Students, you will find CMS to be both welcoming and challenging- we welcome you as you are and we challenge you to do your best everyday; we welcome your failures and we challenge you to learn from them; we welcome your strengths and challenge you to do great things with them.

It is a powerful opportunity and responsibility to work with your children, and it’s not one we take lightly.  Please explore our website to learn more about our school, and do not hesitate to reach out if we can be of further assistance.


Jeffrey Moore, Principal


Canton Middle School provides a safe, supportive, and challenging environment where students experience diverse world views and a broad variety of opportunities.  During this transitional time, teams create innovative, student-centered practices while cultivating independent thinking and collaboration.  In partnership with families, community, and the school, students develop the empathy and self-confidence necessary for lifelong fulfillment. 

Vision Statement

Canton Middle School inspires students to be lifelong learners and citizens who positively shape their community and the world.
