Dr. Amy Martell

Welcome to the Canton Area School District! It is my great honor and pleasure to be leading the faculty, students, families, and community members that comprise the Canton Area School District. The Canton Area School District currently serves 891 students in the boro of Canton, townships of Canton and LeRoy, in Bradford County; the townships of McIntyre and McNett, in Lycoming County; and the township of Union in Tioga County.

Our beautifully centralized campus consists of one elementary (K-6) and one high school (7-12). Our students continually strive for academic excellence and our families take a collaborative role with the district so our students can become active contributors in the local, national, and global community.

It is the goal of the Canton Area School District to actively involve all stakeholders in the educational process. Through collaboration, a commitment to education, and a willingness to be lifelong learners, the district believes that all students can strive for excellence in whatever career opportunities they may choose.

As we continue to achieve our academic excellence, we continue to keep a focus on our district mission to work cooperatively with the community and its resources to maximize student achievement. Please visit our website to stay informed about current district activities and information.
