    Canterbury Elementary is a learning community comprised of approximately 465 students and 80 staff members, including classroom teachers, resource/intervention staff, encore staff, and support personnel. Our diverse community offers both traditional and dual language options for students in grades K-5.


    Canterbury offers many learning opportunities and events for students not only inside, but also outside the classroom. Students look forward to participating in the Reading Incentive program each year, which promotes literacy while rewarding students for their efforts. Author’s Day, Field Day, Literacy Night, Día de los Niños (Day of the Children), Comcast Cares (Canterbury's community clean-up day), and Math Night are also enjoyed by Canterbury families. Students can participate in building clubs/activities, such as Technology Club, Safety Patrol, Canterbury Congress and Chess Club, to name a few.


    From the PTO to the staff and support from businesses and volunteers throughout the Crystal Lake area, Canterbury is truly a community of learners working towards success for all students. It is the participation of the entire community that has made Canterbury a great place for kids!
