Great teachers, great student body and parents BUT school is unbelievably under funded even by Louisiana / St. Landry Parish standards. There is no playground equipment at all, no real parking lot - must use neighboring church parking lot to pick up / drop off kids. I must admit between spending $800 for just one child on uniforms, supplies, chair back caddy (a place to put their books because proper desks are a fable there) fees and others misc. this school will nickel and dime you broke.
Cankton Elementary is a wonderful little community school! The teachers are top-notch! They truly care about our children and provide wonderful, challenging experiences in the classroom. Most parents are very active and involved and the students are hard workers!!
