Rowan University acquires Glassboro (N.J.) district facility for $3.4 million

March 15, 2022
The university plans to use the Intermediate School to expand Rowan Community Music School and house some administrative offices.

 Rowan University has bought the Glassboro (N.J.) district's 92-year-old intermediate school building for $3.4 million. 

District officials estimate that ending operations in the building will cut costs by about $175,000 a year, the university says in a news release. 

The savings and money from the sale will enable Glassboro to convert Thomas E. Bowe Elementary School to a middle school. 

The district will also create three science labs at Bowe School and renovate the locker rooms.

Rowan University is hoping to use the intermediate school to expand its Rowan Community Music School. The university also is planning to move administrative offices into the building.

The Glassboro Intermediate School, a three-story, 79,891-square-foot building, has about 270 students enrolled. The 9.52-acre lot also includes a one-story brick annex with classrooms and an older, wood-frame building used for storage. 

Seventh and eighth grade students will complete the school year at the Intermediate School. In 2022-23, Thomas E. Bowe School will accommodate grades six through eight, and Dorothy L. Bullock School will encompass grades one through five.
