Welcome to Cowern Elementary! 

It's not the building that makes a school great, it’s the people that make a school great!  Our students, staff, and community know first hand that Cowern Elementary is a great school.  Cowern Elementary opened its doors for the first time back in 1952. Our school has provided strong academics and core values to thousands of students over the years.  We continue with this strong educational legacy as we head into our 62ndyear.  Our mission is that every student, without exception, will gain the foundational skills necessary to succeed beyond elementary school.  We are a warm and welcoming school community committed to embracing children and preparing them for the future!
