South Rowan High is such a positive and energetic place. This is a school where I would refer to others not just because of the great teachers, but how everyone looks out for each other. No student left behind!

South Rowan is a small school with a low student body rate and a poor athletic program. The social aspects of the school weren't the best, there was little to no school spirit and seeing the same faces everyday got a little routine and boring. Academically, on the other hand, it is wonderful! Teachers do their best to make sure students learn and understand the materials needed. They also give up a lot of their personal time to help students any way they can, including preparing them for college.
When I first started my journey throughout high school, I was enrolled at Gray Stone Day School, however, at the beginning of my tenth grade year, I switched to South Rowan High School. The environment here is very stress free and all of the teachers work with you to make sure you are on the right track to graduate high school and be successful in life.
