Plymouth-Canton Educational Park is a campus of three high schools in a single 305 acre campus - Canton High School, Plymouth High School, and Salem High School. The park is located in the city of Canton, Michigan in western Wayne county, west of Detroit and educates more than 6,200 students in grades nine through twelve.
The three high schools services the communities of Canton Township, Plymouth, Plymouth Township, Northville Township, Salem Township and Superior Township.
The students at the park frequently travel between the schools, much like college students. The core classes such as English and math are available in each of the three schools. Some classes are only offered in one of the three schools, such as auto repair in Canton, orchestra in Canton, and band in Plymouth. Students from all three schools will particiate in the program in which it is offered.
