    Rowe is by far the best school in the city. Their approach to learning should be adopted city wide. I would highly recommend this school.

    My daughter entered kindergarten at Rowe this year. She is thriving under the excellent instruction and leadership at this school. I highly recommend Rowe to any parent! It is fantastic!

    This school and administration are the absolute best. My daughter entered kindergarten not able to recognize the entire alphabet and finished the year not only reading but spelling! ! Note in first grade she is doing basic algebra and reading chapter books. But aside from the academics children receive a well-rounded education including socialization and conflict resolution. That is worth the school's weight in gold. I highly recommend them.

    This school is awesome! My son has been going here since it opened. We made a huge mistake last year and took my son out to send him to a closer neighborhood school. The neighborhood CPS school was so dark and it just lacked the warmness you get when you enter Rowe. Rowe has a great staff. They are warm and friendly unlike the other place. I called them and begged them to let us come back after 3 weeks and they made it happen. My son is in six grade now and his teacher is Ms. Cooper who is great. She has pushed my son so much that he has went up in reading and is now at the level he needs to be at. He is also improving in math and is really trying so hard. The focus on going to college really pushes my son to succeed and with all the support he gets from this staff I know he will. I can not even put into words how impressed and happy we are that we are part of this great school. Thank you so much Rowe! - Pride - Honor - Success

    Awesome school I am extremely happy. They truly care about education and every scholar. They challenge our kids only if all teachers principal and staff were as dedicated as Rowe is.

    Rowe Elementary is the type of school I had been waiting for! I couldn't be more happy to be a part of their family. Their teachers and staff are amazing. They have two teachers in grades K-2 and the academics are great! Not only do they worry about their scholars (that's what they call them) academically but also social and emotionally. I love that they name classrooms after colleges/universities and that they take them on college visits. Having a college mindset even at 5 years old is important. I would highly recommend for anyone to visit the school. It's truly on it's way to becoming one of the best elementary charter schools in Chicago!

    I am so happy we found Rowe. I have two children attending Rowe (1st and 2nd) and I am very happy. My boys have excelled in all subjects especially reading. I credit the wonderful teachers at Rowe. It is wonderful to have a great school on your team to ensure my boys will one day go to college and graduate.

    Great Teacher Great Staff Great School Administration! My children previously attended our neighborhood school then they attended a catholic school and in both schools I was not pleased with them academically nor with their Teachers. We are fairly new members at Rowe Elementary and I must say it is a world of difference from the past school my girls attended. We are very pleased with the passionate and enthusiastic teachers who dedicate more than the time that is expected from them and love their academic curriculum my girls are finally being challenged. Good Job Rowe!
