Do the creatures I summon—like the flame atronach—get stronger when I level up, or do they remain the same regardless of my level or the level of my enemies?

I suggest adding tags 'conjuration' and 'summoning' if someone with high enough reputation is able. – Andrew Moylan Dec 18 '11 at 2:39
Those aren't useful tags, unfortunately. – Raven Dreamer Dec 18 '11 at 2:46
Ok. I was suggesting because I noticed we have some tags of similar specificity, such as 'zerg'. – Andrew Moylan Dec 18 '11 at 2:51
If nothing else, their magical (spell) attacks don't scale. Not sure about their health. – Raven Dreamer Dec 18 '11 at 3:07
It's "atronach", not "astronach" – Jonas Dec 18 '11 at 3:49

No, the other answer is wrong. The summoned creatures from conjuration are not based on the caster level at all.

All summoned creatures have the same stats (health, damage, etc) regardless of what level you summon them at. The only thing that improves the strength of the summoned creature is the Elemental Potency perk, which boosts all your atronach summons.

If you want a stronger summon, use a higher level spell (such as storm atronach).
