About Our District
With an enrollment of approximately 10,600 students, the Canton City School District is the largest in Stark County and one of the eight largest urban school systems in Ohio. It is also one of the largest employers in Stark County. The district comprises two high schools (each with a freshman academy), four middle schools, 16 elementary schools, one preschool and an early childhood kindergarten center. In addition, the district operates five alternative high schools, one alternative middle school and helps operate a Montessori school, a Digital Academy, an Arts Academy and an educational facility inside a juvenile attention center. The Canton City Schools offer a wide variety of strong academic, vocational, athletic, fine arts and other extracurricular activities. Since 1999, a state-driven building program, Design for the Future, has propelled the construction of ten new school buildings -- Cedar Elementary, Worley Elementary, Allen Elementary, Gibbs Elementary, Belden Elementary, Summit Elementary, Harter Elementary, McGregor Elementary, Clarendon Elementary and Lehman Middle School. A local bond issue provided about 30 percent of the funding. Under the plan, nineteen schools will be new or renovated by 2007.
Every student of the Canton City Schools will achieve at high levels and graduate from high school prepared to enter the work force or college.
