Canton Public School District
Parent Notification (ESEA/NCLB)
The Canton Public School District has worked hard to increase student achievement. Over the last several years it has made undeniable, continuous progress. As a result, this year the Mississippi Department of Education has rated three of the district’s schools “C” which are Canton Elementary School, Reuben B. Myers’ School of Art and Science and Nichols Middle School. All three schools met growth. However, Canton High School did not meet growth; it now has an “F” label. As a result, the district was rated a “D”.
