School Reviews

  • Recommended April 28, 2013 - The teachers at Rowland Hall are simply great teachers who help make the process of educating a child enjoyable, successful and rewarding for students and parents alike. Students are treated as individuals and given the challenges and nurturing necessary to help them thrive. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended April 28, 2013 - Rowland Hall has been a wonderful place for our two boys! They entered the school in 3rd and 5th grade, and we now have a sophomore and senior, so we are familiar with all 3 divisions of the school. The number one strength of the school is the faculty. The teachers and administration are all passionate about education and really like kids! When we have had any concerns, they are all taken seriously, and it has always been easy to approach both the individual teachers and the administration. In fact, they actually solicit input from parents and encourage feedback. The college counseling is superb! I''m certain no other school in the state, and few in the country, could begin to match it. Our senior was guided through the process independently and is now agonizing over which college he should choose from the amazing colleges that he was accepted to! - Posted by Parent
