Our Mission

William Rowen School exists to create a responsive school environment that inspires students to pursue their dreams and motivates them to acquire essential skills, knowledge and enduring understandings. We encourage a collaborative approach that holds teachers, parents, and students accountable for themselves and their community. We promote an inquiry-based curriculum that fosters a love and passion of lifelong learning.  This passion for lifelong learning 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.”
