Rowan is on the move!!!  Rowan is more than a school, but a place where friendships are formed and memories are made. The hallways are full of student projects and classrooms are a great workplace in achieving goals. Teachers are performing at their best, and with the dedication of all Rowan students, every goal will be met!!! Rowan is home of the Tiger PAC, an exclusive club for students who have scored 150 or better on their MCT2 test. Students who are members get their picture displayed on the Wall of Fame and a personal “Members Only” badge accessing students to certain privileges. Some of those privileges include free uniform day on Fridays, and lunch with a friend of their choice. It pays to make the grades!!!!
