Rowe Elementary is a public school open to all Chicago students. While we are a tuition-free Chicago Public School, we require parents to pay an annual fee. For your child to gain full admittance into RES, he/she must live in Chicago, be 5 years of age before the first day of kindergarten; his/her fees must be paid, and his/her records must be complete. No test scores, grades, recommendations, or behavioral history will be taken into consideration. Rowe Elementary does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion, ancestry, marital status, national or ethnic origin, or need for special education services.
