Rowan-Salisbury Schools Reviews

The teachers are great. So much dedication to the students, even after advancing to the next grade or the next school, they are still willing to help the kids out with anything needed. In todays society teachers have so many more issues to deal with. We have never had any of them say they were to busy to help!!
I enjoyed my time from K-12. I never had any problems with any teachers, and I believe the faculty and staff truly care. This school system gave me a great chance to succeed later in life.
The thing that I like about our school system the most is that they work with each student equally. They give everyone a chance to be themselves, and push us to be the best we can be.
Being a student as RCCC, has been essential to my current educational goals. I have great supporting from the college and admire that the county is a safe one. I can always connect with the faculty and have responsive teachers in case of an emergency.
Rowan Salisbury Schools are great schools . With Crosby Scholars being apart of the system it helps academically. I know its not a priority but wish that the county could apply more money into their Athletic programs. If you go around to neighboring counties they have up graded the sports playing areas .
I think Rowan-Salisbury Schools is one of the best school systems I have been in. I have been in 4 different school systems in my life in 2 different states and this one has been the best so far and there is great and has great technology. There isn’t anything I would change about this system.
The Rowan-Salisbury Schools are always seeking to find the best for there students. They have changed in many ways like improving the school's technology and WiFi. As a Hispanic student, I believe the schools are very diverse. I’m thankful for being apart of an amazing county.
Rowan Salisbury School System has been less than ideal to me over my years. They have had bad ideas and poor execution of ideas. Next year, they plan on downgrading from every student having a laptop to every student having an iPad. This will make typing essays and accessing different websites ectremely difficult. I went to North Carolina's Governor's School West, and met tons of people from different counties that did NOT have to pay the $500 tuition because their school system covered it. I also met a lot of people with much harder courses available to them. Courses I couldn't take in RSS unless it was online.
There needs to be more focus on core subjects & less on "seminar" or enrichment. Classes should be longer & have a traditional schedule instead of rotating. It's too confusing. There needs to be more communication between teachers & parents. It should be mandatory that parent portals are updated weekly if not daily.
It's okay, their renewal plan seems to be all over the place at the moment, and most notably my school has an issue with communication, but other than that it keeps up with students fairly well.
Would like to see a return of textbooks and less dependency on technology as teachers. More teaching to mastery and higher expectations for college bound students. I like the opportunities for advanced and honors class.
So far, my experience in Rowan-Salisbury School District has just been average. Although the teachers are great, there is not enough preparation for our future career. We are not getting enough guidance to make our ways into the real world. As a junior, I feel as if I do not have the information needed to start searching for my future college or even my major. I do not have the knowledge of what all of my options include, which makes it fairly difficult to make decisions regarding my future career. Other than this, Rowan-Salisbury Schools is a pretty diverse place where students from all over are welcomed.
The students in the Rowan Salisbury School System need more preparation for college. My experience has just been average and most of the teachers are great but we do not get enough guidance to prepare us for the real world.
Each school in Rowan County was not diverse. They all had many stereotypes, and many of them were true. But all of the schools together, it was a very diverse community. Each schools worked together well not only with the students, but the teachers and faculty as well.
What I like about rowan salisbury schools is that, they offer you a variety of opportunities to be successful. For example, if a class is not offered at your specific school, they allow you to enroll into the class at another school although you do not attend that school. This benefits me because I know I can obtain the information that I need and I also know that any facility in Rowan County is willing to help me achieve my goals and desires.
Rowan-Salisbury Schools maintained a very welcoming enviornment yet often fell short of preparing students for real world problems. They value academic integrity, cultural awareness as well as the connection between peers and administration. Overall, my experience has been beneficial to both my education and personal life.
The communication between career readiness and student knowledge was exempt from lack of students information.
