Rowland Unified is proud of its award-winning schools. Rowland is one of the few Districts to offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program at both of its high schools – Nogales High School and Rowland High School. It also has two IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) Schools: Oswalt Academy and Ybarra Academy of Arts and Technology. The rigorous global curriculum focuses on developing inquiring, caring young people who embrace their own culture and are open to world views. Both high schools also offer the pioneering Career Certification Program, where students can study one of six career pathways: Arts & Communications, Business, Family & Consumer Sciences, Health & Medical Services, Public & Human Services, and Technology. Parents now have the opportunity for Telesis Academy of Science & Math, the newest K-8 Academy in the District that offers the National “No Excuses University” college-readiness program that begins in Kindergarten. Telesis features three new state-of-the-art science labs and is a specialized school in the sciences with the ultimate goal of being a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) school.
Rowland has a strong commitment to the arts and is one of the few Districts to offer instrumental music in all of its elementary, middle and high schools. The Elementary Instrumental Program begins with strings in 4th grade and band and jazz band in 5th grade.
