At Rowe Elementary School...


We trust in a student’s innate desire to learn, given a supportive and stimulating environment.

We view teachers as resources who nurture this desire. In an educationally positive environment, children are challenged optimally to think for themselves, accept responsibility for their learning, and be involved in decision-making. We hope that as a result, the student will become a self-disciplined, self-directed, and creative learner with a positive, realistic self-concept.

Teachers as resources will provide feedback and support, a wide scope of experiences and opportunities, social and emotional strategies for coping, and the tools to become continuous learners.

Ultimately, all educational efforts are directed towards developing a respect for the rights, dignity, and opinions of others, as well as an ability to function effectively and productively in society.


Rowe students will read, and learn to listen, with understanding, developing an appreciation of literature and reading for enjoyment.


Rowe students will develop skills necessary to read and listen with understanding, express themselves clearly and correctly in both speaking and writing, develop competent mathematic skills, an understanding and appreciation of the arts, a basic knowledge of scientific concepts, and skills and attitudes that promote physical health


Rowe students will learn, with support, to make intelligent decisions, assume responsibility and independence, and appreciate people and their cultures, past and present.
