    I regret having my child in ths school. I had him here for kindergarten and by the first grade he was already behind other kids in other schools. I placed him in a private school for first grade the best choice I made. Now he is doing better then hs fellow class mates. At Rowland the classes have too many kids and not enough teachers. The teachers have no control of their students. I know several parents in my neighborhood who have pulled their children from Rowland and placed them in private or home school. It is worth the yearly expense to have better education

    Principal not engaged with staff parents and substitute teachers. First grade washrooms have wash bins with sensors that are too high for students to turn on water therefore students do not wash hands. Classrooms have 22 students no teacher aides. Classes mixed with IEP students that required one on one and are distruptive to class of students wanting to learn. Difficult students in 1st grade that cannot identify letters in alphabet but can sing the song. Need additional support that is not available. Lunch room slow and chaotic. Low staffed. Kids made to rush to eat to go outside.Principle not highly visible in hallways or dropping by classrooms.

    My daughter has attended Rowland for the last two years and overall we have been very pleased. The children are taught to respect one another and to work out disagreements themselves. I know my children are safe at school.

    I do not believe that the principal adequately supports the teachers and students. The principal is not overly friendly or approachable to a large portion of the student body. My son and daughter both attend Rowland and have had positive experiences with wonderful teachers.

    Both of my daughters went to Rowland K-4. My youngest just completed fourth grade.The school has always been very community involved. The teachers that both of my girls had were excellent. My 10 year old. is a dwarf bringing social hassles to her. She is so good in handling situations. When things do get beyond her control the Assitant Principal has been there for her making a difficult situation disappear.Academically the fourth graders seemed to have learned more then when my 13 year old was in that grade. More math; harder math. This I like seeing. The challenges are what our kids today need.

    I have been in the district for three years now at Rowland and have been very pleased with our experience there. The staff has always gone out of their way to accommodate the students and focus any individual attention on them when necessary. I would highly recommend this school and district to anybody considering a move to the South Euclid area.
