    Not a good school anymore! Alot of bullying going on there and the way they handle it is just wrong. And crazy behavior is not even handled very much tolerated there. Not happy with alot of the staff that has recently came in. Not happy! On our way out thank God!

    Rowland's newly remodeled campus is just one of the positive changes happening at the school. Slowly Rowland is making steady progress to become a more competitive elementary school in Rowland Heights.

    Newly remodeled classrooms roll out of new technology and updated green areas in the school make it look like a brand new school. Teachers and office staff work hard for the kids and the community. I invite anyone to take a closer look at the changes in teaching and learning that is taking place at Rowland Elementary. The teachers at Rowland Elementary are committed to providing an education fit for all children and socioeconomic levels. #rockstarrascals

    New principal...be careful. I was a parent at another school district were this principal once worked (Little Lake City School District). She brought nothing but drama to the school (and district). Poor people skills are one of the reasons she didn't last long as a principal. As a former PTA member I can only pray for the staff.

    I love this school. The teachers seem to really car about my child. The teachers at Rowland Elem. teach things in a different way a more interesting and exciting way of teaching.

    Mrs. Tatum is the best special education teacher ever. I was so worried about my son who has Autism when it came time to move to Rowland Elementary. Mrs. Tatum made this transition easy and we have always felt reassured and confident having her as my boy's teacher. My son is going on to middle school this September and he will miss Mrs. Tatum (even though teachers are grouchy sometimes) and her wonderful helpers in the classroom he has already expressed this. Thank you to Rowland Elementary for taking care of my son at school and at outdoor science school! Thanks again to Mrs. Tatum Mr. R Mr. F and Ms. Fung

    Great school. Caring and nurturing. A family feel. Relatively safe. I'd recommend the school to any child. If you want your kids to feel loved and cared for this may be the only elementary school left in the district that kind provide that kind of quality atmosphere.
