Principal's Message

"I believe in you, you can do it, I won't give up on you and effort counts. " These are four very powerful statements that can make a difference in the live of those around us. There is clear research that concluded these statements can raise student performance. During the first few weeks of school, in talking with teachers and parents it was clear that we expect a lot of students at Mary Rowlandson and are continually looking for ways to help them succeed.
