Roberts is an excellent school. I have been thrilled with my children's experience there. The principal is incredibly involved, and the teachers are wonderful. Fabulous new facility, lots of extra-curricular activities, and a VERY active PTA. We are so grateful our children are able to attend there.

If I could rate Don Roberts a 10 I would! When I tell you this school is AWESOME, EXCELLENT, PERFECT, and LOVING... Believe me! I don't think there is a better elementary school in LR! The teachers are perfect! The entire staff is perfect! This school is filled with so many different learning experiences. They also have so many things for the children and parents to look forward to. This school is so amazing it cannot be put into words! Don Roberts Rocks!

This school is almost too good to be true. The brand new facilities are superb (full gymnasium with climbing wall, music rooms with keyboard studio, science lab, EAST lab, art studios with kiln, great playground, lots of natural light, environmental award winner). What makes the school spectacular, though are the amazing teachers and staff assembled by a tremendously effective principal. There are innovative activities (LEGO club, anyone?), incredible specialists, a great library, and caring, dedicated people who are positive in their interractions with kids. Add a fabulous active PTA, and really, what more could you ask for?
