Our hope is to provide opportunities for students in grades K-4 to create, construct, experiment, invent, think, solve, risk, try, grow, learn, explore and collaborate outside of the classroom. All while having FUN!

stop bullying

The Canterbury Public Schools Safe School Climate Plan is developed and addresses the existence of bullying in its schools. A core component of preventing bullying and creating an environment that is safe for all is the ability for students to anonymously report acts of bullying and teen dating violence to school employees. Students can use the reporting form below or can text information to the school bullying reporting hotline at (401) 992- 4132  or simply write down the information and share with a teacher or administrator. Both online forms of reporting are directed to a school administrator who will follow the procedures and protocols in compliance with the Canterbury Public Schools Safe School Climate Plan.

Canterbury Public Schools Safe School Climate & Bullying Reporting Form


The mission of Canterbury Elementary School, in partnership with home and community, is to promote interactive student learning through a positive, caring environment in which self-worth is enhanced and a life-long commitment to learning is developed.
