I've been in this school since Kindergarten to 5th grade. It's the best elementary experience in my entire life. Great teachers & excellent principals. I was proud to be represented and belong to Rowland Ele, But after seeing so many comments about the students. I have no idea how the generation have been acted up so lately. During my past time in Rowland students were very generous and nice, but this year has changed; I don't know why. I came to visit and various faculty staffs try their best to help students to exceed . It's not the parents fault nor anybody's fault but the society changes us all. We just have to be careful what surrounds them. But Rowland is the best & deserve to be rated more than a 2.

I think disciplin should be taught at home not in school. If your child behaves at home you do not have to worry about how they would act at school. Rowland is an excellent school and I like everyone of the teachers my son has had. The parents that are involved go above and beyond for the children and for the most part we do have a good amount of parental participation. I think Rowland has excellent teachers that love what they do and do it well.

I've had childen at Rowland for the past 12 years. The principal does a very good job of attempting to get the parents involved and in providing extra opportunities of learning for the students as well as providing extracurricular activities. I do agree that the teachers teach to the curriculum rather than to the students, but that is the fault of the county educational system and not of the teachers. Behavioral problems abound but, the onus is on the parents. If we would all do a better job of disciplining our children, the teachers would have more time to teach. All things considered, Rowland does a good job with the limited resources it has.

I feel that the teachers need not to attend so much on the discipline but more the students education. The older teachers seem like they are too tired to teach and need to retire. The young teachers are too young and seem like they need more experience. Overall it is a very good school.

Rowland used to be a very good school. Over the years it has declined. The teachers are either young and unexperienced, or older and have given up on the students. The teachers are more concerned with making sure they have covered all the criteria that Dekalb County requires them to cover in a year than they are with being concerned as to whether or not the students have actually learned what was taught. The teachers seem to spend the majority of their day reprimanding children which takes away from their teaching. There is very little parental involvement which is sad. I feel that if parents were more involved and thought of the school as a place of learning instead of a daycare, then things would improve greatly. I think teachers get tired of trying when most parents do not respond. The success of a school is a two way street.

Rowland is a very good school the school has a good leadership from the principal and a caring faculty, but I would like to see the students disciplined better than they are.
