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.
