With over 7 years of experience at Churchville Elementary, it truly is an amazing school. My children have both graduated and are currently attending Churchville Elementary. We have found the teachers/staff to be dedicated to individual student learning and create safe/friendly learning environments for all students. The needs of the students are assessed on a regular basis and curriculum is designed/modified to meet the individual learning styles. The office staff is very friendly, always willing to answer questions and help to keep the school running successfully. The PTA is an active presence in the school and provide unique learning experiences for the students through field trips, assemblies, guest speakers, etc.

The teachers are so committed to the kids. THe smaller class sizes really allow the teachers to get to know all the kids personally.

When I went to Churchville, the teachers were very encouraging. I always had straight A's going there. The teachers always provided positive feedback to each student, including myself. There was only one teacher that was not very liked by students and parents, but the principal took care of that situation very quickly. There were no fights that occurred. It's one of the rarest thing that happens at that school. Every once in a while during the school year, they have activities like Survivor and Field Day. They also have a Spring Carnival every year, opened to the public as well. The Kindergarten building is separate from the first through fifth graders, which should be more comfortable for a child just starting out school. This only is true for Churchville because it was built over 80 years ago, and kindergarten hasn't been around that long. Don't worry, the buildings are in very excellent condition. To any parent reading this and looking for a school for their child/children, because this is coming from a former student who went to Churchville all six years, I highly recommend this school to any parent/guardian. Your child/children should have so much fun there. Just like I did.

We had a pretty good experience last year with our children's education. We have a "normal" child and a child that has an IEP with learning disabilities. This year hasn't gone as well as last in regard to our child with an IEP. The math program in Harford County Public schools is AWFUL, especially when you have a child with math learning disabilities. I feel like my childs teachers dropped the ball on his math education by not changing their approach to help him succeed. We are very displeased with the whole experience this year. Some testing and changes are being made, but we wonder if it is too late. Over half of the school year has gone by and when we really do figure out how to best help our child, the school year will be practically over. For our normal functioning child, the school is fine. We heard after moving here that Churchville was the best place to send your child if they have an IEP. So much for No Child Left Behind. My child is falling farther and farther behind. Looking at other schools for my child/children.

We have had an excellent experience at Churchville Elementary School. It is a small school where the teachers and administrators know the parents and children. Our daughter has in IEP and everyone we've dealt with at CES has been very supportive of her. Great school.

I have had the pleasure of being part of Churchville Elementary for the last 5 years and feel that it is an excellent school. Very dedicated teachers, faculty and parents. They have lots of programs that are unique to Churchville and have many programs to assist the children that may be struggling starting as early as K. My hat off to everyone that makes this school a success.

Overall Churchville ES is a good school. The teachers are very committed. This is a very secular school. Many fun activities that the students enjoyed in the past have been eliminated. This school seems too focused on State testing & has forgotten that the students who attend are only 5-11 year old children!

Overall, Churchville Elementary is a good school. The teachers are very dedicated & the parental volunteers are faithful. The low pupil enrollment enables my child to get extra help. The school has been renovated so it has a new, clean atmosphere and is updated technically. Each classroom has a computer, TV, & phone. My 3 children have attended Churchville and I have been very pleased. My only complaint is that extra help was not available for my children, who have all struggled mastering math skills. The Math curriculum seems to move too fast & the children don't seem to master skills before they have to move on to the next unit.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
