I'm so glad we moved. The teachers and staff are completely rude and they lack loving and caring teachers. Especially teachers who love to teach! Even with a new principle things still aren't what they should.

Rowe Lane has surpassed our expectations. The art teacher is motivating and creative. My child really enjoys the Enrichment program that happens every Friday. So far he has loved learning about dinosaurs, science and karate. Rowe Lane goes the extra mile to make sure my student is engaged and challenged. I look forward to our future at Rowe Lane.

My child had a horrible Kindergarten experience at Rowe. The teacher yelled at the students daily. It was very disheartening to send my child off to school everyday to a classroom that had a negative and unsafe environment. The students were yelled at or surrounded by yelling and intimidation on an almost daily basis. My child felt unsafe in this classroom. There were 5 parents that went to the ISD to complain and one child was actually pulled out the last 5 weeks of school because the classroom environment was so damaging. Academics are important but to us social learning is more important. We as parents can pick up the slack of academics that may not be covered or extended at school but we cannot undo the social learning that occurs while they are in the teacher s care and under her direction. This teacher modeled horrible behavior to our children and her acts of yelling or as she defined it, raising her voice shows a lack of self control and professionalism on her part. Get out of teaching if you can't be a positive role model for our children.

Rowe Lane Elementary needs a huge overall. Poor leadership that supports teachers that are unprofessional and burnt out. The academics are lacking along with the fact that there are not enough talented teachers there to ensure high quality education. They really need to move some teachers and change admin for a true change to begin at the school. Our children deserve a better education and better teachers than Rowe Lane offers

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.
