The principal since the 2013–2014 school year has been Brenda Cora, who was previously Dean of Students. Rowe-Clark's curriculum is intensive and college-preparatory, with each student taking the equivalent of eight years of math, six years of English, four years of lab sciences, and four years of social sciences.
The school is named after John Rowe, the former chairman and CEO of Exelon, and his wife Jeanne and Frank Clark, the former chairman and CEO of Commonwealth Edison who became president of the Chicago Board of Education in 2015, and his wife Vera; Rowe and Exelon both donated $2 million to open the school, and Clark also donated. Its founding principal was Joe Tenbusch.
