My granddaughter has been at Canterbury since Kindergarten. She had an excellent Kinder teacher, and was ready to be tested for the Magnet program. She is now in 2nd grade with an excellent, challenging teacher. Although the Magnet Program is constantly challenged by budget cuts,I am sure that, even without the funding, her teachers would be excellent.

Three of my children attended Canterbury Elementary between 1994 through 2007. This school has great teachers and an excellent Magnet Program. The Magnet Coordinator was a teacher at the same school and has great expertise, he even created his own weather radio station, which would go on the air once a week. Their caring for students is priceless, parents are welcomed all the time. I volunteered for their drama program and other exciting activities. They have a great approchable principal. The students are well behaved and their staff is the friendliest

Canterbury is a remarkable school. I am proud to teach at Canterbury because it is a place where the teachers are inspired, the administration is excellent, and the students are put above all else. My only concern is the lack of parent interest in starting a PTA, an organization that I feel is greatly needed and could positively enhance our school and student learning. Interested parents should approach Mrs. Rodriguez, our principal. Tell her you are willing to do what is needed to get the PTA up and running!

My child is in her 3rd year in the Magnet and this is the first year she is really not enjoying what she is learning and how disappointing. The last two years were incredible, this year hasn't been so great between the teacher not being as organized, absent and projects have not been as challenging as previous years.

I have my child enrolled in the magnet program and can vouch to say that the wait was worth it. They have many trips and extracurricular activities that assist the kids with learning certain subjects. They have a music program, great drama performances that give everyone the opportunity to participate and audition, even kids with no prior experience. Parents are welcome to and usually do get involved. Overall its a great school.

I attended this school as a child and loved it , now my son is there and frankly I feel the attention to students is not good. My son has been on the waiting list for magnet for 3 years and I feel that they put people ahead of him. His current teacher does not challenge him and gets easily frustrated with him. At times when I have approached the staff they have a non-chalant attitude about the problems. I am very dissapointed with the way the school is being run.

Class sizes are too high, teacher do the bare minimum. Many students are behind. CAT6 test score should be posted by classroom/teacher for viewing, with the childrens names protected. General school statistics are not good. Staff needs to be advanced in there weak subject matters and create a plan where kids are not left behind while there teacher is out or trying to get handle on things. Over all I know the school has advanced with there new principal but I expected more from there high ability magnet program. Therefore I look forward to our new blue ribbon school we will attend this fall. All our schools here in the USA should have higher standars. Our kids deserve it!

Class sizes are too high and 1 on 1 instruction is rare, which causes some kids to fall behind. We need more teachers!
