With 2 children attending Canongate Elementary, we have had an excellent experience. It was 3 years ago when I was checking these same ratings and reading parent comments on different schools. I am very pleased to be right where we are!

My daughter has been going to Canongate for the past two years. Her reading skills have soared and she has a new found love for math! Her teachers so far have been amazing at encouraging her to learn and study hard.

Hello! I am a parent of a child who is enrolled at Canongate Elementary for the Georgia Pre-K program. I am writing because my experience with this school thus far has been fantastic! The school staff have been very helpful and very courteous. They seem to understand and empathize with what we are going through as parents of a child entering elementary school for the first time! We have heard nothing but great things about Canongate, and know several people who have their children enrolled as well. We are looking forward to continuing a great rapport as our child grows and learns at Canongate!

I have been amazed by the teachers, education level, and preserverance of everyone at Canongate! I have two children that currently attend. My oldest has special needs, and is cared for while at school..and on such a high level, that I am speechless. The staff and students REALLY care here.

A wonderful school! We have two children there now. Our oldest is slightly autistic. They have been great to work with. Our son has a paraprofessional in the classroom with him all day long to keep him on track. They have great teachers and small classes. It's a great area to live in. I just hope his next school can be as good.
