Principal's Message

I believe every child can learn and all students can overcome the barriers which may stand in their path to success. “I know the price of success: dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen” – Frank Lloyd Wright. 

Cantara Elementary School is located in Reseda, and has evolved into a multiethnic, multicultural school since it was built in 1956.  We are a School-wide Title I school and we are proud of our accomplishments. 

Our classroom instruction focuses on Common Core Standards, Next Generation of Science Standards. We use brain-based strategies, we design instruction based on how the brain best takes information. We take pride in focusing on the quality as well as the quantity of learning.

At Cantara Elementary we welcome parents and develop and provide meaningful opportunities to encourage parents to participate.  We offer Parent Teacher Partnership Classes focusing on breaking down complex skills in to short segments, allowing repeated practice for students and providing parents with instructional tools.
