You can't beat the quality of the educational experience you get at Colonial. They somehow have managed to find the right balance of academic core curriculum, speciality courses, and extra curriculars. And they are somehow also able to work with the students on an individual level. The team at Colonial helped my son get into his top 3 schools for college! An amazing district!

A wonderful school district. Highly recommended! Many advanced placement (AP) courses offered, great for college prep. I know several MDs, PhDs, and lawyers that have come out of Colonial SD. Also, lots of options for athletics, clubs, and activities. Colonial easily stands up to the other "top districts" in the area, with a much lower cost of living.
I think Colonial School District has good schools. The elementary schools (K-3) are decent, but Conshohocken Elementary could use some work. I noticed that on PSSA scores, kids in CE tend to not do as well as other kids in elementary schools. The education in Colonial Elementary (4-5) is good. The education in the high school is very good. I have seen very hardworking students in all of my classes, and the teachers do their job well. There are some courses that are extremely beneficial for students, like Career & Financial Management.
