North Canton School District Rankings Continue to Climb as Our Students Soar

As year after year our graduates advance to the next stages of their lives well-prepared to tackle their challenges, the correlation between rankings and performance become apparent. It’s no accident: Our students succeed and the North Canton City School District continues to climb in the rankings of top school districts in Ohio and in the national rankings, too. Listed by most school district ranking sites in the top 5 percent in the nation, we’ve also earned a top-40 ranking in Ohio (out of 1,600+ total schools).

We are proud of these acknowledgments, but only in that the proof is in our students. As a district, we focus on the skills our students will need to help them be leaders in the 21st century economy. We know what employers want, and we make sure our students leave equipped for success whether they go into a trade, higher education or on to serve our country in the military.

What’s more, our students excel beyond the classroom. Our sports teams regularly compete for championships at the district, regional and state level. Our arts programs are recognized as some of the best regionally and our extracurricular/club activity participation rate is more than 80 percent. Integration of these activities throughout the district starts in kindergarten and continues through graduation.

Want to learn more? We are easy to find. The North Canton City Schools District office is located adjacent to Hoover High School. Please enter through door 25 on the northwest side of the building. You can enter the campus at the 10th Street entrance and park in the first lot on the right.

We invite you to come tour our schools and see for yourself all that we have to offer. If you would like to schedule a tour or discuss registration, please email us or call 330-497-5600. Enrollment is open to North Canton residents or by tuition arrangement.

The North Canton City Schools, on some inclement weather days, will be implementing a delay schedule for Hoover High School and North Canton Middle School with elementary buildings operating on their regular schedules. See the individual schools pages for regular start and end times.

We could see improved weather and road conditions by 8:00-9:00 a.m. on some threatening weather days and feel that we can save an instructional day by using this schedule. A delayed start will also help eliminate the need for possible additional make-up days in June. There is also more daylight as our students travel to school on foot, in cars or by school bus. The improved visibility may help eliminate some potential driving and walking hazards. Finally, this schedule will allow local road crews more time to service the roads before school begins.

The elementary students, their families and their schedules are least impacted, which may help family planning for such a morning. The older students are more able to handle a schedule change.

All staff (classified and certified), except for bus drivers, bus monitors, and possibly some cafeteria staff will report safely (as weather conditions permit) to work on their regular schedules.

Bus drivers and bus monitors will report to work in time to run their regularly scheduled elementary routes. H.S. and M.S. routes will begin immediately after completion of the elementary routes. Cafeteria staff will work on a delayed schedule as arranged by the food service director.

Parochial, Montessori and out-of-district schools’ students will continue to be transported by their present buses but will be picked up and dropped off at their respective schools on the delay schedule.

Take home times will remain the same for all students.
