Welcome to Rowland Avenue School

“One benefit of Summer was that each day
we had more light to read by.”  
- Jeannette Walls

 Hello Friends and Families,
       I hope your summer has been filled with much reading but also many chances to rest, travel, play, learn and grow.  We are looking forward to the 2015-2016 school year at Rowland!  Our daily goal is to provide the highest quality education in a safe and nurturing environment.  Rowland’s outstanding teachers and staff members, combined with engaged students and involved parents create a partnership that will ensure success in academics and life.  Teachers have been getting classrooms ready for the first day of school on August 24, 2015.  The bell rings at 8:20 and we will excitedly begin a new school year!

Mrs. Christensen, Principal

CBEE BannerRowland Avenue Elementary has been selected by California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) as one of 2,108 public schools in California to receive the title of 2012 Honor Roll school.

Schools receiving this distinction from the California business community have demonstrated consistent high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations.
Over time, CBEE has identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools and districts.  These include high expectations for all students; ongoing collaboration among teachers to improve practice; targeted use of data to pinpoint challenges and monitor progress; continual intervention for struggling students; and mastery of content knowledge and pedagogical practices.
"Honor Roll schools are overcoming challenges and obstacles every day for all students and are especially succeeding with kids who have been historically underserved.  Our goal is to highlight their results, and provide a voice to these outstanding educators so that their success can be emulated in other places," said Jim Lanich, CBEE president.
The Honor Roll list grew from 261 schools in 2005 to the current 2,108 for 2012.  A full list of the Honor Roll schools can be found at:
