  • Rowe Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Rowe is an amazing school, strong leadership and extraordinary staff. Our son attended here for 4 yrs. We moved from the city and over the summer we have visited schools , public, private, gifted and haven't seen a school like Rowe. I wish I could have bring with me the entire staff. Strongly recommend this school. Also I wanted to share that even though my son is not enrolled in this school anymore one of the staff here has helped by giving me information and advice about the district and schools my son could be attending next school year. Thank you Rowe and all staff for everything . ROWE ELEMENTARY IS THE BEST SCHOOL IN THE CITY.
