The problem with all public schools is they rely on town funding and how towns support their schools and this is where the problems are with this school. They avoided putting my son on a IEP plan for years as it would cost more and then they let us down badly at the end of our time here because of money, so care and consideration of each pupil is secondary. Teachers are well meaning but many lack enthusiasm!
Great, caring teachers. Only school in district to have a before school academic program (Rowayton Academy). Involved parents and PTA. Overall, very nurturing school within a wonderful community. School provides an excellent education for our kids!
We have been so happy with Rowayton Elementary, from the very active PTA, great teachers, and the involved, approachable principal. Our kids have taken advantage of the great before school activities (Rowayton Academy) as well. The school does need more space so the addition of a new gym, art class, and classrooms are much anticipated next year!
Rowayton School is the hidden gem of the Norwalk school system. It has a very dedicated staff and the parents are engaged in every aspect of school life. My kids love the school and get a top notch education.
Very involved parents, caring teachers, and strong curriculum. My daughter absolutely loves this school. Great programs before and after school as well. Facilities are constantly being improved upon as well.
Rowayton Elementary School is a small town school within a city, has the benefits of being a neighborhood school with the added aspect of racial and cultural diversity not present in many schools with our demographics.
Rowayton School has a caring environment and an amazing community spirit that helps children learn not only academically (very high test scores), but also how to be good citizens of the world and to treat each other with respect. The student body is very diverse and we are all the stronger for it.
