A number of significant improvements have been put in place at this school in the last several years. For example, the school has now adopted the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, which includes language instruction (Spanish) at all levels, starting with K. The math and reading programs are very strong. There is a variety of high-quality after-school enrichment activities. In addition, the school instituted a zero-tolerance anti-bullying policy in the last several years that has markedly improved this issue. Our child has attended Canterbury Elementary for the past two school years (K and 1st), has received an excellent education, and enjoys being in school.

The staff is great in class, however they can't seem to get the bulling under control. Teachers are not required by contract to watch the students between school and bus time. The result is a lot of fights and verbal bullying on the playground and befor and afterschool. I have been dealing with this for three years (since kind.)

Canterbury is a very caring school environment. The PTA does a lot of activities to provide funds for field trips, playground equipment and after school activities. My son seems to know all the teachers and kids from kindergarten through the third grade. My son is in the 2nd grade. He is a special needs student and his kindergarten and 1st grade teacher still comment to me on how he's progressing in the school. Although I don't care that much for his current teacher, I'm looking forward to his teacher in 3rd grade. Overall, is a caring and nuturing environment

This is a great school and I would highly recommend it to anyone moving into the area. The principal and teachers are professional, passionate, caring and really interested in the well-being of the students both academically and other wise. What I like about it is that it is a small enough school where everybody seems to know each other.Caterbury has a diverse student population. The educators do tolerate bullying so I have heard very little about any bullying at school. I am new to the public school system but I cannot be happier with the education that my children are receiving at Canterbury. There is a high level of parent involvement and there are many activities for families during the school year. There is an after school program (at a cost) and several after school recreational programs are being offered. An overall great school!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
