North Rowan Elementary School has helped my child so much in the past year. One of the best teachers is Mrs. Abele. She has been instrumental in helping my child to reach for the stars. She is an educator that I will never forget. She takes time to review lessons with my child to ensure that my ...  Read more

Great school, especially for kids with autism. Kids are treated with compassion and patience. Also more gifted kids are given brain-challenging work. My kids looked forward to going to school there.

I have a son at this school in Kindergarten and so far I've been happy with the parent/teacher communication that I've received. There are a great bunch of teachers at this school who really care about their kids. Every time I go to eat lunch or visit with my son, the students seem to be well behaved ...  Read more

North Rowan Elementary school is an excellent school. The teachers treat the students fairly. The teachers don't have cell phones in the classroom and they don't yell at the students. All the students are supreme and get the stuff they need to in order to become a grown adult. The teachers give us ...  Read more

I think this school very amazing. If we don't understand something then we can ask the teachers and the teachers will explain it to us nicely. It is also because they don't care which color skin we have; they just want us to get smarter and smarter. Also, the teachers don't yell at us, they respect ...  Read more

I was surprised and disappointed when I read some of the reviews. I am at the school constantly and can say 100% that this a hard working, determined group of teachers and staff. It is a sweet bunch of kids and it has gotten a bad rap. The teachers stay late and lug work home. They go above and beyond ...  Read more

This school should be monitored better. I was very disturbed by the way most of the teachers act over there. They are very loud, and not very nice. I am sure that there are a few good ones, but the majority of them are not good.

I have two kids in this school and so far its doing fine. Especially since they got all new computers. My 3rd grader went from almost failing 2nd grade to straight A's this year so far. My K is missing a lot of days due to viruses but the teacher is good Miss Cook. She has already learned a ton more ...  Read more

My comment would be that the Parents need to go check up on these teachers because I have noticed some of them Yell at the Kids. And just because the teaches have phones in their room I think they take advantage of it because I getcalls sometimes even at work to tell me my child broke a pencil on purpose ...  Read more

This is not a great school. There are a few teachers here who are great at what they do, but it's mostly the children that make it bad. Most of the teachers can't control them. No control over the children, no respect for the teachers, just a bad environment for the children who do actually want to learn.
