Dear Canfield Community,
The 2018-2019 school year is going by quickly. March is a time to remind us how lucky we are to be part of the Canfield Schools. We have the highest performance index scoring in the Tri-County area with a 104.3! We are committed to providing a well-rounded, dynamic education for our students! We offer all-day kindergarten, elementary art and music, STEM education, virtual labs, gifted education, reading and math intervention, guidance and inclusion services, AP courses, College in High School, a highly competitive interscholastic sports program with twenty-two varsity sports, an internship program, highly-acclaimed Drama, Band and Choir programs, along with a nationally ranked Speech & Debate team. 96% of graduates continue their education at a higher level and the class of 2018 was offered over $15 million in scholarships!
We are fiscally stable, spending 70.4% on classroom instruction. Our cost per pupil expenditure is $8,713. The state average is $9,149. This is important to note because we are achieving spectacular results, while also being good stewards of our money. Only five districts spend similar dollar figures per pupil and perform at or better than we do.
As a community, we are lucky to have dedicated students, parents, alumni, and staff who work together to make sure our children have a wonderful school experience. May the “luck of the Irish” be with you as we enter the Spring.
Alex G. Geordan, Superintendent
