Neighbor Testimonials

Our programs and services have a lasting impcat on our neighbors and the West Town comunity. Here’s what some of our neighbors have to say:

Rowe has taught me how to be a better leader and how to be a role model. I thank our teachers, and deans, in particular, for an amazing year together. Everyone has grown closer to each other, and became the memorable, cherishing, graduating class of 2025.

Rowe Elementary School Alumnus

As a working mom, I find the After School program very helpful because it lets me drop off my children at Rowe as early as 6:30AM, giving me time to get to school and work. My kids love the clubs and activities availble to them, and look forward to going every day.

Edvige K.

After School Program Parent

Our family loves Adventure Stage’s Trailblazers program. It’s helped our children improve their literacy skills and develop interpersonal relationships. The teachers and staff are phenomenal and I always look forward to watching the performance at the end of the summer.
