Canterbury is one of the best schools in Indiana. Teachers are devoted to their students (there are some exceptions) and the school makes sure to support its students Academically. However, mental health is not a priority to the Administration, and many students are overwhelmed with anxiety or burnout. If students are facing more serious issues, such as depression, PTSD, or anxiety attacks, the school has no system in place to support them. they are also severely lacking in diversity. I would say the schools makeup is around 70% white, 20% asian/middle eastern, and 10% other BIPOC.

Canterbury is amazing. It has a strong college preparatory curriculum with a foundation in core subjects, and gives students the tools to learn about, prepare for, and experience the world beyond Fort Wayne through a global perspective. Classes are intentionally small; advanced placement, extracurricular and athletic opportunities are extended to each student
Dedicated teachers and a College Counseling team, pair smith students like me And other’s time achieve a 100 percent college admittance rate, making us well-rounded young adults who are confident, thoughtful, and compassionate.
Canterbury School is most definitely a school of opportunity. Although tuition starts at a high price and the acceptance rate is lower than average, the work put into getting it is worthwhile. The relationships built there are one-of-a-kind, and the students receive high-end college preparation, especially seen in essay-writing and the college application process, as teachers walk them through every step. Canterbury also offers an all-inclusive environment with no-cut policies in all Fine Arts and Sports teams, making sure every student is included and has the opportunity to be in whatever extracurricular they want, even with no experience in it whatsoever. Allowing students to be part of the school community in all aspects, Canterbury definitely fulfills its belief in making its students artists, athletes, and scholars.
