Open Quote We have been with Rowe since kindergarten and we feel we have made the right choice. As a parent I make the choices that best fit our goals for our children, that is Rowe. We have seen teachers leave due to many reasons (personal and professionally), but I know while at Rowe they gave it their all and I saw it in my children. As we now prepare for High School I know I won't find the welcoming and family environment Rowe has, but I expect the same or better quality of education that Rowe offers.

I am the parent therefore I chose what is best for my children. Close Quote

Open Quote The quality of the school dramatically decreased when the new principal took over. He is never available. Also, many teachers and administrators have left since Ms. Martinez left. Lots of families leaving too. Stay away from this school--it went downhill fast. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
