Rowe is an amazing school, strong leadership and extraordinary staff. Our son attended here for 4 yrs. We moved from the city and over the summer we have visited schools , public, private, gifted and haven't seen a school like Rowe. I wish I could have bring with me the entire staff. Strongly recommend this school. Also I wanted to share that even though my son is not enrolled in this school anymore one of the staff here has helped by giving me information and advice about the district and schools my son could be attending next school year. Thank you Rowe and all staff for everything . ROWE ELEMENTARY IS THE BEST SCHOOL IN THE CITY.

Rowe is by far the best school in the city. Their approach to learning should be adopted city wide. I would highly recommend this school.

My daughter entered kindergarten at Rowe this year. She is thriving under the excellent instruction and leadership at this school. I highly recommend Rowe to any parent! It is fantastic!

This school and administration are the absolute best. My daughter entered kindergarten not able to recognize the entire alphabet and finished the year not only reading but spelling! ! Note in first grade she is doing basic algebra and reading chapter books. But aside from the academics, children receive a well-rounded education including socialization and conflict resolution. That is worth the school's weight in gold. I highly recommend them.

This school is awesome! My son has been going here since it opened. We made a huge mistake last year and took my son out to send him to a closer neighborhood school. The neighborhood CPS school was so dark and it just lacked the warmness you get when you enter Rowe. Rowe has a great staff. They are warm and friendly, unlike the other place. I called them and begged them to let us come back after 3 weeks, and they made it happen. My son is in six grade now and his teacher is Ms. Cooper who is great. She has pushed my son so much that he has went up in reading and is now at the level he needs to be at. He is also improving in math and is really trying so hard. The focus on going to college really pushes my son to succeed and with all the support he gets from this staff, I know he will. I can not even put into words how impressed and happy we are that we are part of this great school. Thank you so much Rowe! - Pride - Honor - Success

Awesome school I am extremely happy. They truly care about education and every scholar. They challenge our kids only if all teachers, principal, and staff were as dedicated as Rowe is.

Rowe Elementary is the type of school I had been waiting for! I couldn't be more happy to be a part of their family. Their teachers and staff are amazing. They have two teachers in grades K-2 and the academics are great! Not only do they worry about their scholars (that's what they call them) academically, but also social and emotionally. I love that they name classrooms after colleges/universities and that they take them on college visits. Having a college mindset even at 5 years old is important. I would highly recommend for anyone to visit the school. It's truly on it's way to becoming one of the best elementary charter schools in Chicago!

I am so happy we found Rowe. I have two children attending Rowe (1st and 2nd) and I am very happy. My boys have excelled in all subjects, especially reading. I credit the wonderful teachers at Rowe. It is wonderful to have a great school on your team to ensure my boys will one day go to college and graduate.

Great Teacher, Great Staff, Great School Administration! My children previously attended our neighborhood school, then they attended a catholic school and in both schools I was not pleased with them academically nor with their Teachers. We are fairly new members at Rowe Elementary and I must say it is a world of difference from the past school my girls attended. We are very pleased with the passionate and enthusiastic teachers who dedicate more than the time that is expected from them and love their academic curriculum, my girls are finally being challenged. Good Job Rowe!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
