This is our second year at Rowe Lane and I am still disappointed. Not only are the school teachers and principals horrible about communication but so are people at admin such as the sub coordinator and curriculum person. I have emailed 4 different individuals and even followed up with phone calls and only got a response from one school personal. It's a shame that Rowe along with PISD doesn't communicate with parents. If we are suppose to trust you to educate our kids and keep them safe while in your care at least put effort and keep the lines of communication open between school and home. Not responding to a parent is not acceptable.

I am lucky enough to be zoned for the new school this year. My child had an awful Kindergarten year at Rowe. S is a horrible teacher who yells at the kids on a daily basis. My child hated school and this was just the first year! I complained all year to the principals and finally had to go to the administrative office. She screams at the students on an almost daily basis and does not understand how to engage children in learning unless you count 20 worksheets a day engaged learning. Nor does she know how to redirect behavior unless you consider screaming and intimidating appropriate techniques. She does not deserve to teach one more day!

Rowe Lane has met my expectations as a parent. The teachers are caring and are able to encourage high achievers to go the extra mile. It's not often you see all kids engaged in learning at all times. I highly recommend this school. For the reputation of the school and the demographics, I would expect more parent involvement. Parents are involved but it could be better.

My school is Rowe Lane Elementary and I cannot say enough wonderful things about everything the school as a whole stands for. My son has been there since Kinder and they have always been great to us. The teachers are excellent and always helpful. The entire staff is dedicated and ALWAYS caring in every way. I volunteer whenever I can and am proud to be a part of this community. The children are taught to be respectful and try their best. I'm so thankful to have RLES to guide my son and help shape the person he is going to be. Thank you Rowe lane Elementary for doing such a great job!! :D

I am not happy with Rowe Lane. The office staff is completely RUDE, all 3 ladies are not helpful, never greet you, and never have answers they should have such as early release times for grade levels. The principal and assistant principal are too worried about being politically correct and do not help parents solve issues. I emailed the assistant principal over two months ago and did not receive a response about my concerns. I have already had contact with him so I know he received the correspondence. The teacher we have seems burnt out and is just there to earn a paycheck. Teachers are also not appreciative of parental involvement....they just expect it. I am so disappointed with this school. I am at a loss and not sure what to do since the administration at Rowe does not seem to care about a parents concerns.

I am not impressed with Rowe Lane Elementary. The principals support the teachers 100% and do not listen to parent complaints with any objectivity. The teachers punish students who have to go to the restroom outside of whole classroom bathroom breaks, they yell at the students, students getting sent on buses that are suppose to be car pick up, anyone can walk into the school during functions and are just handed a sticker and do not have to sign in and classwork consists of 10+ worksheets daily. I hope that someone realizes that there is major room for improvement at Rowe, that might be some movement of teachers and if they have grievances from parents they should take them seriously and try to rectify the problems.

RLES is great. This is my son's first year (Kindergarten) and we already love this school. Mind you...we already heard good things about his teacher from our neighbors because she taught two of their girls, so we were already excited. The only negative think would be the front office staff who don't really greet parents well enough for me. Other than that eh...I got over it. We will miss this school sooo much because we are moving to the Houston area where we hear it is very hard to find a good public school. Most have to go to private. This is heartbreaking news! If you are deciding on Rowe Lane, stop worrying. You are making a great choice!

This is a great school because of the teachers that choose to work here. They are making a huge difference for all of our kids. The same can not be said for the principle, her head is in a box. I have to say good thing we have the best vice principle you earn more than your paycheck. Make the teachers fill out a private questionair at Rowe Lane "do you like your boss"? I promise you will hear NO!!! They are hard on kids but for the right reason, no slacking off, they expect the best only, lots of work to prepare for Taks. This school is exemplary for a reason and that's a great thing keep the kids in the right direction....

This school is absolutely horrible. Don't bother talking to the principal about any problems because you get no where. You don't get school papers home. You have no idea how your child is doing in class. And on top of all that lots of homework. Expecting a first grade to write poetry is absolutely the craziest thing I've ever seen.

The teachers, admin and school spirit are great. But having recently moved out of state I have found that the academics are lagging behind other areas.

Rowe Lane Elem is awesome. The teachers are great and especially the Music program. Mrs. Wilson is there from first thing in the morning until last thing, after the school office staff is long gone. I'm proud to have my son attend this school.

I love this school. There is a great sense of school pride. The gym, music and art teachers are wonderful. The teachers my kids have been blessed to have have made school not only very educational, but fun. I feel my kids are challenged even though they are bright. There is also a lot of parent involvement. I would recommend this school without reservation.
