Our kids are the number one thing in our lives and quite simply, the Plymouth-Canton Schools are why we are here. My Wife and I have 3 children attending Plymouth-Canton Schools. Both my wife and I attended and graduated from the schools here. Until recently, we lived in another community. We have experienced Livonia Schools and a Charter School. We felt that our kids would be best served in Plymouth-Canton Schools and would have better life experiences growing up in the wonderful community of Plymouth. So here we are! We love the teachers, we love the schools, and we love Plymouth!

Wow! Where to start? This district is why we moved to Plymouth. I have 1 in high school, 1 in middle school, and 1 in elementary school. I have been so impressed with the teachers in this district. Each year I find teachers who are more than just teaching my children subjects in school. They are guiding them, helping with friends, seeing them they difficulties, teaching them how to be good sportsmen , and helping me raise good, moral and smart children. They are with my children as much as I am. I am proud to say my kids attend school @ PCCS!

We are brand new to PCCS, parents of a kindergartener, and our experience at Smith School has WAY exceeded expectations! The principal Mrs. Jones is passionate and dedicated to innovative programming, the teachers are fantastic and the parents are soooo involved and invested in our school. We thought we'd see how the first year went and evaluate our options if we didn't love the public school, but I would NEVER leave now!

Absolutely love Plymouth-Canton schools! We've had our children in public and private schools in MI and VA and public schools in TX. We're extremely pleased with PCCS and our children love their schools. We had a son in the autism program from 5th through 9th grade that made his educational experience amazing and enjoyable. He transitioned smoothly from elementary to middle to high school through the guidance and support of his teachers and speech therapists. He currently attends a resource room along with his general ed classes at The Park. My children look forward to going to school after summer vacation and all their breaks. I volunteer at all my children's schools and their sport teams. I witness the dedicated, compassionate, and skilled teachers, coaches, and staff at our schools. They give so much more of their own time for their students/athletes and make learning/participating fun and exciting. They try to work with each child's learning abilities and provide extra services if the child needs them. We can't say that about our time with VA and TX schools.

I love the PCCS because they prepare our children for the future! I have had one graduate from Canton High School and another one in 2nd grade. Our schools prepare our students and provide a solid and well rounded education. When my daughter went away to college, after experiencing and growing on our high schools campus, college was just the next step. The schools prepared her well and she went on to major in Cell and Molecular Biology and has been admitted to medical school. Thank you PCCS, Hoben Elementary, Discovery Middle and all the high schools for the education you provide my kids!

I went to Plymouth-Canton schools from grades K-12. I had wonderful teachers and received an excellent education during my time there.
