I really enjoy going to school in this district. I am currently a first-semester Junior at South Rowan High School, and my time here has been wonderful. The teachers are so nice and supportive and I have the opportunity to challenge myself with Advanced Placement classes. The only suggestion I have would be to use our technology, iPads, SmartBoards, and MacBooks, a little bit less. Sometimes it's nice to have a break from these amazing tools and learn hands on!

Rowan Salisbury Schools has many things they do well and many issues. Many schools have great teachers who care about their students and love doing their jobs. At the same time, many of those teachers do not have the required resources to help those students excel and many times have to use their own funds to meet their needs. Rowan Salisbury Schools has very unique programs but, they do not have the classes, clubs, and programs that schools in the surrounding areas have and they do not have the means to acquire those programs for their students. Rowan Salisbury Schools is a school system that does an adequate job of preparing High Schools students for college and gives them an average education.
The facilities are great. They try and keep the outside looking pleasing to the eyes of others. The inside of the schools could look a lot nicer than what they do. Especially East Rowan, they are so old and have done no remodeling to the inside and you can smell the mold. The staff do a great job to keep everything clean on the inside but sometimes little things get untouched and you can tell.
