    At Rowan-Salisbury Schools, we believe children are more than a test score.

    Our community deserves a school system with autonomy that empowers schools to create an engaged learning environment through a while-child approach so students enjoy learning and teachers enjoy teaching.

    Rowan-Salisbury Schools is cultivating healthy and engaged learners by accelerating academic skills, elevating interpersonal skills, and developing their unique life goals. Our teachers incorporate these three skill areas into day-to-day instruction to foster student engagement and buy-in.
    Rowan-Salisbury Schools serves more than 18,000 students at 33 schools in the heart of North Carolina, nestled between Charlotte and Greensboro on the I-85 corridor.
