A Continuous Vision of Excellence
Thanks to the support of our community, Rowland Unified has beautiful, modernized classrooms and schools due to the passage of the Measure R Bonds in 2000 and 2006. The passage of the 2012 Measure R Bond will ensure brand new buildings at both Rowland High School, Nogales High School and at Oswalt Academy. Funds will also be used to complete modernization at all schools across the District, including technology upgrades.
We have great schools! Students receive an academically rigorous, standards-based education in a caring, supportive environment that promotes personal growth and develops future leaders. We offer innovative and dynamic academic programs at both high schools, such as the prestigious International Baccalaureate certificate, Advanced Placement courses and the national award-winning Career Pathways programs.
