We Are Viking Strong!
Welcome to North Canton City Schools — home to Viking Strong. While you will find an immense amount of information on our website, we welcome you to take a tour of any one of our school buildings/campuses. Our staff is always eager to share what sets North Canton City Schools among the elite school systems in the nation. I personally feel very privileged to be a part of such a hardworking, dedicated and involved school community, comprised of strong students, teachers, parents and staff.
Our students succeed in the classroom and regularly provide feedback that they were extremely well prepared entering higher education and the workforce, regularly outperforming their peers. Our teachers spend a great amount of time in and out of the classroom researching and employing the latest learning tools and techniques. Our parents offer tremendous support to their students and to the schools where they attend, bolstering the performance of their children. And our administration and staff lead our programs and processes to a higher level of achievement.
Our goal is to continuously strengthen the learning environment on behalf of our students. We will better prepare them with the skills that today’s — and tomorrow’s — employers demand. We will help them become stronger scholars, stronger competitors, stronger creators, stronger collaborators and stronger humanitarians.
The North Canton City School District serves more than 4600 students. We are consistently rated “Excellent” by the Ohio Department of Education, but that’s just the beginning. Our high school is consistently ranked among the nation's best public school districts by Newsweek Magazine’s list of America’s Best Public High Schools, Washington Post’s High School Challenge list, and the U.S. News and World Report’s Best High School rankings.
We are Viking Strong and together we will prepare our students for strong todays and stronger futures.
