Rowe high school is much like other big high schools. There’s different groups of students based on what you do as far as extracurricular activities and clubs. Then the popular kids think they run the school. What I enjoyed about Rowe however is that the teachers treated everyone the same, there wasn’t much favoritism. I also liked that we had people literally from all over the world and we were kind to them. We have a lot of resources in our library and computer labs. We even have acces to a computer science class which is amazing! If there’s something I wish I could change it would be the quality of desks and our involvement efforts. We need to do more activities and have more spirit events to get students and parents more involved and create an overall better atmosphere.

Rowe high school is the absolute BEST school in the world! We have the most school spirit and the teachers are the most understanding, caring people that I have ever met. I can honestly say that this school has changed me in so many ways for the better. I have never felt more safe at a school than here. The academics, school clubs, and sports create such amazing school spirit from freshmen through seniors. This school has the most welcoming students and staff that are always happy to help. The parent involvement is incredible as well as the amount of work our teachers put in to get us ready for college!
Throughout my three years at Rowe High School, I have excelled fully in my academics and involvement within the community. Overall, I have no negative things to say about RHS because thanks to the resources they provide I'm going to graduate with my associates degree in Biology. However, there is one thing that I have noticed since the start of my junior year and that is that some teachers underestimate us, the students. I have noticed this, because due to the fact that I am a dual enrollment student and only attend high school the first half of the day, my schedule didn't allow me to take certain classes as AP or pre-AP. Having said that, from my time in those classes there is a very big difference between the teaching styles. That would be one of the only things I would change, but my overall view of Rowe High School is that it has helped me become who I am today and I couldn't be more grateful!
