STEM education is active and focuses on a student-centered learning environment. Students engage in questioning, problem solving, collaboration, and hands-on activities while they address real life issues. The elementary has also implemented STEM sections in the 4th and 5th grade levels.
East Canton Elementary utilizes personalized education and building wide intervention.
ECMS was a 2016 and 2017 Momentum Award recipient, this award recognizes schools that have received A's for every value-added portion on the Ohio School Report Card. Value-added is used to measure the amount of growth students experience within a school year and this award indicates ECMS students are receiving a year or more of growth per school year. The report card for 2016-2017 showed that students made greater than expected progress in mathematics and reading.
According to the 2016 My College Options Annual Report, which surveys more than 700,000 students nationwide, about 52 percent of East Canton High School students plan to pursue a STEM-based career versus 28.2 percent nationally. The report also found that 95 percent of East Canton students planned to attend a four-year higher education institution following their high school graduation.
East Canton Schools recognizes the need to model continuous improvement and we value the guidance and support from all stakeholders-students, staff, parents and community, as to how we can “get better” as a district.

East Canton Middle School was awarded the Momentum Award in November by the State Board of Education for a second year in a row, this award recognizes a school for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year. A school must earn straight A’s on all Value-Added subgroups of students. This includes gifted, lowest 20% in achievement, and students with disabilities. This achievement puts ECMS in a very small group of Stark County schools who received this award. Middle School principal Mr. Greg Dente said, "Receiving the Momentum Award for a second straight year is a wonderful accolade for our staff, students, & families. It is a nod to the exceptional instruction our teachers provide and the dedication they portray each & every day in meeting the unique needs of our students. Our success is also attributed to the partnership we have with our parents and guardians as well as the perseverance of our amazing students. Congratulations to our entire ECMS Family!"
