Welcome to Canfield!


Canfield Elementary School is a neighborhood community school that celebrates diversity and reflects the racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic make-up of Los Angeles. With approximately 400 students, our school is small enough to make sure that each child's needs are met, yet we are large enough to provide extra enrichment and diversity that parents want for their children.

Canfield is a special and unique place - a small community public school that succeeds because of the partnership that exists between involved parents, committed teachers, and a tireless administration. At Canfield Elementary, we understand and savor the elementary years of a child’s life. We hope you appreciate how quickly the future approaches and take some time to participate in the many wonderful activities at our school.
