Canterbury Elementary

Principal: Erica Wigton

Dear Families,

       It is evident that the children are ready to learn and immerse themselves into all of the wonderful opportunities that Canterbury Elementary has to offer.  Canterbury earned candidacy  to become an International Baccalaureate (IB) School. Over the summer, teachers will work collaboratively on writing the IB curriculum.  The IB approach focuses on students learning through inquiry and becoming globally minded citizens.

     Each day, our world class students strive to focus on our mission statement of being “lifelong learners who express belief in ourselves and others through our actions, academics and the arts.”  Our teachers work on providing experiences that help students express their ideas using an art emphasis. Every Friday, students participate in a creative arts block where teachers work on connecting academic content through PE and music. 

     Lastly, Canterbury teachers are working diligently to prepare lessons that engage and meet the individual students’ needs.  Our teachers meet often to discuss student data and the best research based teaching strategies. Canterbury has a wonderful staff collaboratively striving to help all students succeed.

     Please continue to visit Canterbury’s webpage or schedule a tour.
