Rowan is one of the highest scoring schools. They have great teachers who always support the community. I was diagnosed with cancer and teachers helped me and my family. They took me to the doctors, brought food to my home and took care of my boys. What a great school!

The bad reviews on here are by parent's that DO NOT take responsibility that it takes the parent and the school to help a child achieve their potential. Relaying on the school is a cope out stop living up to stereotypes. This part of East Los Angeles is a working class community of 1st and 2nd generation Mexicans that are trying to push their kids to be better from what I see. I am so proud of the teacher's and staff

I think it is a great school. If you are a involved parent and talk to teacher or administration when there is a problem- you can receive great results!

The incompetence of the staff at this school as well as the poor level of education provided, not only makes it frustrating for parents, but also fails to provide our children with the adequate education needed to be future successful contributing members of society.

The focus on k-1st is strong, but I found that once children exceeded these grades they are no longer being challenged. There weren't many extracuriculary activities for the children.
