The Town of Canton & its citizens feels privileged to have such a stellar network of schools (at all levels) located right here within our community.
Our schools take pride in their commitment to the level of education which they provide & the success of our children as a whole.
In a variety of areas by which educational institutions are measured here in North Carolina such as:
- End-of-Course Tests Performance;
- School Attendance; &
- The degree in which our schools possess “Quality Teachers”, etc…
…our local schools have consistently measured average or above in comparison to other schools in our district and state.
One point of interest is that for the year 2010-2011 all of the Canton schools listed below received the designation of “School of Distinction” for high growth in terms of learning achieved in one year as measured by End-of-Course Tests.
