This is an awesome school with a wonderful new principal. I am glad that out of district variances are controlled to prevent overcrowding.
my son did 1st and 2nd grade here and i am sad that we moved out of district and did not stay for 3rd! We had amazing teachers, admin and staff all around great school. Less focus on group scores and more focus on each individual childs needs!
My two boys had started their education at this school, 1 currently in 1st grade, 1 in 3rd. My husband and I who are both active duty military moved recently and I submitted a variance that they get to stay at this school till the end of the school year so we did not have to change everything in their lives all at once. The school denied our variance, my kids are well behaved and do not miss school at all. They gave us 3 days to find a new scool which included finding a new daycare as well. They have no concern for your children and only see them as a number or a possiblity of getting money. I've never seen a school try to get so much money from parents for absolutely nothing. Not even fundraisers they just ask for donations constantly. My kids hardly ever had homework, my 1st grader had more than my 3rd grader. I am upset at how the school handled our variance but ultimately pleased with being forced to change schools and get away from this one. I would not recommend this school to anyone, go to a charter school!
My daughter has attended Barbara B. Robey elementary school since Kindergarten and she will be starting 4th grade there in the Fall. She has loved it there every single year, and I've been mostly pleased with her teachers, especially for 1st and 3rd grades. This school stresses high expectations in academics, but they also provide many extra-curricular activities, way more than any area schools. The principal and other staff members are open and available, and having the actual Mrs. Barbara B. Robey there is the icing on the cake! She's a role model to all of the students. I think this school can only get better and better in the coming years.
This is an outstanding school where teachers really go the extra mile for students. My child has responded beautifully to the systematic phonics program and is a solid reader. This was not the case in a previous school and district. There is a great community feel at Barbara Robey.
The teachers and staff have made it an exceptional environment for our children. I can't say enought about the dedication from principal Ms Wisner and Barbara Robey herself! So lucky to have comfort in the learning my son is receiving from the entire Robey Staff!
My daughter has attended this school for 2 years now. She is now in 1st grade and we are really happy overall with everything about this school. Her teacher is wonderful and ALL the staff and principal are very nice and caring for each student. Thi biggest thing I love is the emphasis on respect and politeness this school teaches. A lot of schools in this area are lacking this and have problems with bullying. This school has a zero tollerance policey on bullying, and that alone makes it worth having my child there. I feel that she is in safe hands when I drop her off each day.
This is an excellent school!!! Our son completed half of third grade and has now started 4th grade and he loves it. This is only the second school that he has attended, and everyone there was very welcoming when he got there!! Thank you for everything that you are doing.
I just pulled my daughter out of this school. She was attending kindergarten. Very unhappy with the security and having problems with teachers and front office. Secretary really does not know her stuff I agree with another parent that wrote this. So very very unhappy and daughter was very upset at this school. Cannot even began to explain how all of this was uncalled for. Hope this school gets it together for everyone else's children.
My daughter just started there and i'm very unhappy with the homework and work she is being given. There doesn't seem to be enough. I've also emailed her teacher several times and still have received no response.
My daughters last year at this school was great. Her teachers have been great and very good with the children. They have helped these kids with the resources they have and have done a great job.
Our daughter attended last year (her first year at Robey)and she had an awesome year with Mrs. Ebenholtz. She is an exceptional teacher with a great personality. The staff is nice, the principal is great and highest praises to Mrs. E! We look forward to another great year at Robey!
My daughter just transferred here and was accepted with open arms. The staff so far has been great and the kids are very respectful. I can't wait to begin the new year!
This school is one of the best my children have ever attended! The teachers have a genuine care for students and the students are polite, outgoing and very respectful. I feel welcome on campus and teachers have treated my children with respect and compassion for their individual needs.
My child attends this school and I am very impressed with the care each teacher shows towards each child. My childs classroom seems to be very polite and well mannered. I love it so far. I pick up a happy child each day, and he/she is very excited about being there each day.
The school is still new but the secretary should know her work and she doesn't here. The teachers are great. The principal is great the activities are awesome and the academic level is great. I love the teachers who actually care enough for your child to do great. My son/daughte love this school and love the lunch ladies who help them and know their job very well. Thank you.
