This is an okay school. The teachers and some parents really care about this school. I think the parents who complain about it aren't putting in effort to make it better. Join the PTA volunteer for a fundraiser volunteer in a classroom. It's a group effort by the parents students teachers and administration.

That school is terrible. Teacher seem nice and willing. Yet bullying horse play isolation ( my daughter was the only white and pretty much by herself the whole year). The direction is just following state guidelines... We had just moved in the neighborhood what a mistake!!! i am so happy my daughter is out of that school.
When we moved to this neighborhood I wasn't excited about the school. My now 10 year old attended preschool here very briefly and it wasn't the greatest experience. I was used to the Del Mar district and this school is no Del Mar. Mostly because Del Mar has the families with the ability to do serious fundraising and this school is in a poorer neighborhood. That said I love the school now! They were an underperforming school but they have made tremendous progress and my son is blossoming there. This is mostly because of his awesome teacher. She pushes every year to keep her same class. This allows continuity and the teacher has a great relationship with all of the students. Over the years she is an expert on what each child needs. My son's test scores have gone from underperforming and average to above average and exceeding standards. I could not be happier. Yes it is an old school yes I would love for it to have an updated website but most importantly yes I would make the decision to send my son here all over again. My daughter begins kindergarten here in the fall and I couldn't be happier about it.
I think this is a good school. They do a lot for the kids and for the families and communities too. We've never had a problem here in three years.
Not only does this school have a free Primetime program for before and after school care; but it is an exceptional program teaching travel art personal responsibilities etc. etc. The Primetime staff is caring qualified and exceeds expectations.
This is my daughters second year attending Rowan and I am not a happy parent. It all started last year when I heard a teacher raising her voice and be somewhat sarcastic with my 5 year old. I complained to the principle and she did seem genuinely sorry for the whole ordeal. And assured me she would talk to the teacher. I felt relieved and content. But later I find out that apparently I am not the first to complain about this teacher and that some parents had even removed their child from her class! I felt it was all an act and I felt like she really worked a number on me. I mean come on how many parents need to complain about a teacher being nasty to children before some action is taken? With that said I'm not disqualifying all staff there. There are a few teachers who genuinely look like they have found their calling in life and enjoy the students & teaching.
When my child went there she had a teacher by the name of Ms Soloman. She is without a doubt was the worst teacher my child has ever had. She spoke to my child about adult topics and was extremely unstable. She had panic attacks while the kids stood by and watched. She should not be teaching.
My daughter is in second grade she is haveing trouble in school but the staff is great they are always helping and they never leave a child behind they offered my child reading class and a one on one helper. This is a great safe clean school .
This school is one of the better school in san diego. My kids feel safe and happy. The teachers work with parent to help the kids to do their best. My kids teachers had been visited me in my house to talk about my kids improvement. The school staff are very friendly.
My son graduated from Rowan 2 years ago. He had a some academic/behavioral issues. They were constantly in contact with me to formulate a plan to help him succeed. My daughter is now entering Kindergarten at Rowan and I would not have her go anywhere else. The teachers office staff principal and 6 to 6 staff are great.
Rowan is a great school. They do a lot with the kids. A lot that they do comes out of the teachers pockets. We love this school.
