  • hey anita, chicka, maybe you should get a life and dont be ragging on our school. Canton HS is the best, our teachers are great, our principals are great. we're an exemplary school and an exemplary school district. Band, 3x state champions. Sports teams are great, and we all have great sportsmanship. Everyone has always said we are the most polite, respectful, smartest group of kids ever. It's funny that someone from New Jersey is bad mouthing such a great school.

  • Your phone system is the worst. You should have a person answer at least so we know there is someone alive at that school. If you are calling from another school and you have no ones name you cannot speak with anyone. If this is a public school the public should have access!!!!
