The John A. Rowland High School Administrative Team has always seen and continues to see our school as a work in progress. There is an understanding of the need to keep pace with industry and university standards in order to provide our students with the most up-to-date opportunities for learning and better prepare them for the future. This vision has resulted in Rowland High School receiving a six-year WASC Accreditation in 2013 as well as being recognized by the state as a Gold Ribbon school and Distinguished school and for its CTE programs, nationally as a Blue Ribbon school and "One of America's Best High Schools" through Newsweek magazine, and by outside entities such as being selected for the Successful Practices Network by the Gates Foundation.
