    Canterbury School is amazing! My 7th grader is in an accelerated math class and is challenged every single day! The middle school teachers are engaging the students in so many different ways. I am so glad my children will able to go onto public high school and place in honors and AP classes as well as participate in sports All 8th graders that applied to Grimsley and Page IB programs were accepted. Canterbury has 11 alumni that have been valedictorians or salutatorians over the past 9 years. Go Cougars!!

    Canterbury Schools has a good and caring faculty but the standards particularly in middle school and in math is not up to par. If coming into the school in a grade other than kindergarten you will find it cliquish from both the parent and student perspective. Very small town and unwelcoming.

    Canterbury is the best or one of the best private schools available in Greensboro. Teachers and staff are incredibly involved in each students life and interests. Small sweet school that produces future leaders.

    Our daughter has attended Canterbury since kindergarten and I am thrilled with her progress academically and in every other way. Canterbury teaches the "whole child" and it shows. I am so thankful for the wonderful teachers and staff. The open door policy is fantastic.

    My husband and I are so pleased with our daughter's experience at Canterbury. She is pushed academically nurtured spiritually supported and encouraged involved and excited about everything she is learning. The campus is gorgeous and the faculty and staff are approachable likable and excellent at what they do. We love this school.

    An absolutely fabulous school and I have loved every minute of my time. There is no other school that I have ever encountered that understands children as well as Canterbury!

    This is an incredible school. They have found the perfect mix of strong academics varied arts programs and caring faculty. My children have greatly benefited from their excellent program and are prepared to continue any high school of our choice. In Greensboro there is no school that better prepares students to explore their own spirituality (weekly Chapel services theology etc.) in a strong academic environment. The only negative?...it's too small to accomodate all the good students that apply.
