Frank Fowler Dow School No. 52, in partnership with parents and community, is committed to preparing our students to value themselves and others, attain their highest level of achievement, become lifelong learners, and serve as productive citizens.
Frank Fowler Dow (1851 – 1928) was born in Fowlerville, NY. The town was named after his great-great grandfather, Wells Fowler. Mr. Dow attended college at Geneseo and studied medicine at the University of Buffalo. Did you know that he worked to have New York State pass legislation so that all schools have a playground? It is part of a law named after him, the Dow Law. In 1930, School 52 was named after Dr. Dow to honor this man who did so much for children, his community and education.
