We do love our new principal and vice principal! It's refreshing to be greeted by a smile. I know if I have a concern I can pop in any time to see the principal, and I know my concern will be resolved.

I want to start of by stating that the teacher quality at Conowingo is excellent. With that said I have a huge issue with the Principals leadership skills.

My children are so fortunate to be at Conowingo Elementary. The Administrators, Teachers and faculty are a wonderful combination that provides all the students of this school with an excellent educational experience. We have four children that have gone through this school and absolutely love it. I think this school is one of the best kept secrets of Cecil County. Wendy Doring

I am so appreciative that my children have the opportunity to go to Conowingo Elementary. Everyone from the custodian to the principal seems to take an interest to encourage each child and build them up.

If you could pick your school this is it. The teacher and staff do a great job of putting the children first. They have great parent volunteer program and welcome parents to see the teachers in action! Every child is helped and praised in every way.

We love our Conowingo Elementary! Everyone from the office staff and custodial staff to the nurse and guidance counselor to the principal and teachers are involved with the students every single day! They create a wonderful and nurturing environment for learning facts as well as life lessons. Their character education is a breath of fresh air in our 'laid back' society. My daughter is excited to go to school everyday and never stops talking about her wonderful teachers! Our principal and vice principals are very interested in giving the students a great place to learn and feel at home. You can feel how great this school is as soon as you walk through the doors!

This is a great school with very caring teachers and active parent involvement. The school is in a country setting and the children learn in a relaxed atmosphere. I wish all of my children had had an opportunity to attend this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
