HONOR CODE

As a member of the Canterbury family, I pledge to uphold my personal integrity, promote equality and be respectful and considerate. I will be honest and sincere, facing each day with a positive attitude.

Canterbury has been instrumental in my son's academic and emotional growth, thanks to its outstanding faculty, tight-knit community, and commitment to personalized learning and inclusion. Since joining Canterbury, we've been welcomed into a warm and supportive community that feels like home. The faculty's genuine care and encouragement have made a profound impact on my son, fostering a sense of belonging and connection that he experiences daily. The school's rich traditions add an extra layer of excitement and enjoyment to the learning journey. These traditions reflect the faculty's dedication to creating a dynamic and engaging environment where students can thrive academically and socially.
