    I have two of my daughters that attend Cecil Elementary. One is in the 2nd and the other kindergarden. Hands down this is one of the best elementary schools in the state; they have the test results to prove it. My oldest exceeded everything on the BSA testing thanks to her teachers and at home studying. I wouldnt ask for a better set of staff. I love everyone at the school. Keep up the great work

    Cecil Elementary is hands down one of the best schools in Baltimore City. The teachers show care and concern for every child and the children excell with learning. The principal knows the name of every child in the building and expects each and every child to do thier best.

    My daughter has attended Cecil Elementary since pre-k. She is now in the 5th grade and has been on the honor roll every year since she started. I love this school. The teachers and the administration are wonderful! Cecil is one of the best elementary schools in Maryland.

    My son is a new student at Cecil Elementary #7. He just started kindergarten and I am pleased thus far. I was very aprehensive about sending my son to a Baltimore City public school due to the obvious inconsistances of the system in provinding a quality education but I love Cecil's administration so far. The principal Mr. Drummond is tough and rightly so. The teachers appear to be caring and concerned when it comes to educating the children. I hope the year will progress in the same energetic fashion that I see now. I will resubmit my review toward the middle of the school year.
