Canterbury Collegiate Academy Reviews

We came to Canterbury in the middle of last school year. The students, teachers, and administrators were very welcoming and made the transition successful. Administrators are readily available and are always working to improve the academic environment if the school. They have plenty of after school activities for upper elementary, including chess, dance, and basketball training. They are also very receptive of activity recommendations from parents. My family is enjoying being a part of the CES family.

I love Canterbury. I have been at Canterbury for 10 years and it is basically home. Being such a small school offers so many benefits, for example: you get one on one help from teachers, you develop close relationships with everyone, and you become so involved in everything the school has to offer.
The Canterbury Episcopal School heavily focuses on language skills and has a heavy workload to prepare students for college. Students learn not only how to analyze literature, but to understand it and present an argument. Teachers generally try to help students if they have a problem, and since the school is small, everyone is at least familiar with each other. One problem is, there aren't very many clubs or activities offered by the school. There is no Future Farmers of America branch or band, but there is a multicultural club and a recent STEM club. Another problem is that communication is oftentimes poor. For example, last year, some students did not find out there was a field trip until the day before.
