Rowe Clark offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum with an emphasis on science and math, guided by Noble’s philosophy of scholarship, honor and discipline. Students benefit from the school’s new Exelon gymnasium.

Rowe-Clark Math & Science Academy is a campus of the Noble Network of Charter Schools in Chicago, IL. We opened our doors on August 20, 2007 to our first Freshman class. Today, we have 500 students grades 9th through 12th. In 2011, 100% of our first graduating seniors were accepted into different colleges.

Rowe-Clark was named for the generosity of John and Jeanne Rowe and Frank and Vera Clark along with the gracious support of Exelon. Their commitment to high quality education is astounding. The Rowes and Clarks are actively involved at Rowe-Clark, often attending school wide activities, sporting events, and student led town hall performances and class discussions.
Academic Performance
School LevelLevel 1
This is the rating the school district gives to a school about how well they are performing. From highest performing to lowest performing, the possible levels are: Level 1+, Level 1, Level 2+, Level 2, and Level 3.
Freshman On Track80%
This is the percentage of the last 9th grade class that, based on their grades and attendance in 9th grade, is on track to graduate. Whether or not a student is on track during their freshman year is the biggest indicator of whether or not they will graduate from high school on time!
Average SAT Score951
The SAT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions that students take during their 11th grade year. This piece of information averages together the scores of the last 11th grade class at a school. The CPS average is 951.
Graduation Rates74%
This is the percentage of a group of students at a school that graduated within five years. The average in CPS is 69.9%.
College Enrollment Rates74%
College Readiness33%
This is the percentage of students at a school that scored at least a 21 on the ACT, which demonstrates a higher level of readiness to take college level courses.
School Culture
Student Mobility13%
The percentage of students that transfer in or out of the school during the school year. A higher percentage means that there are more students coming and going. Though it doesn’t tell us why students are transferring in and out, we can imagine that it could feel a little unstable if this is a high percentage.
Student Attendance89%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
Teacher Attendance(Not Available)
This is the average daily attendance of teachers at the school – on average, what percent of all the teachers employed at the school are in attendance. As a student, it could be more challenging to make academic progress if you regularly have substitutes or don’t get to build a relationship with the teacher.
