Welcome to Rowen!

The Rowen Experience

Our teachers and students engage in an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning that fosters a love and passion for lifelong learning. This passion is summed up by the words of John Dewey, which are inscribed on our building: “Education is not a mere means to life. Education is life.”

Welcome to Rowen Online

We welcome you – our students, parents, friends and neighbors to our online community.  Our school has been servicing the West Oak Lane community of Philadelphia since 1937. The beautiful Georgian Revival architecture of our elementary school, with its large stone entrance, truncated steeple, and tall marble columns, stands as a monument to education, supporting the proposition that all children can learn at high levels and should be educated to their fullest potential.
