Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
This school should be a model for all schools in dealing with bullying. The entire staff are the absolute best in preventing, responding, and then mending friendships.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I don't know about this area of need. Sorry. I know that overall, the teachers are good with working with struggling students.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Dr. Havey is a great principal. I am usually very critical of principals. However, I think Dr. Havey is great at fostering a caring environment.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
This is where the school excels! The teachers, staff, and the principal work together to create the best environment for the kids to not only get along, but to care about one another. Everyone at the school works hard to make sure there is no bullying. More importantly, they teach the kids how to work out conflicts and mend friendships. I've been an educator for over twenty years, I've never been to a school that does a better job in the area of creating a caring learning environment. I am very grateful that my son is a part of Saint Robert School.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers are excellent. Unfortunately, the school is underfunded, so the attrition rate is high for faculty.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
There is a lot of homework, but there are teachers happy to tutor and provide extra help for struggling students.

My son has been a student at Saint Robert School since third grade. He is about to enter eighth grade. The school feels like a large, loving family. The school not only provides a caring learning environment, it also provides high quality instruction. I strongly suggest that anyone interested in the school, go for a visit.

This is a wonderful little school that nobody seems to know about. We have wonderful dedicated faculty who care about the students and families. Most of the graduates feed into Christian Brothers and St. Francis high schools. The class sizes are small and they have added music, art and Spanish classes over the last 2 years. The student body is very diverse and reflects the many different communities represented in Sacramento. I whole-heartedly recommend this school because my children are well educated, and loved by this community.

To say the least, this school could absolutely use some work. If your looking for the best quality education, you will find it somewhere else. If your looking for a faith based community with a good education, then this really is a good place. One program I firmly believe that they should abolish is the music program and specifically its teacher. She is beyond rude to parents and students and spends more time moving the kids around the classroom so that they won't talk then actually "teaching." The principal does nothing about many issues that are at this school, and parents get frustrated coming to talk to her because she is distant and not receptive to parent concerns at all. Parent involvement is great, they really do try to make the school a better place, but there are limits. True rumors have it that the teachers here are paid less than most public school teachers, and the tuition here is very high. Sometimes, I question whether I should continue to send my kids here if this is what I get. While I realize that every family's experience is different, If I were you, I would say try it for a year, and then leave if you feel that it is not the best environment for your kids.

My child attends this school and is in the second grade, she has been there from the first grade. The teachers are amazing, caring, helpful and apply faith during class and are a huge inspiration for the kids. St. Robert School just recently put a fence in front of the school which looks amazing and helps improve safety. Class sizes are manageable, teachers care so much above each individual student and study them closely to better their education, I would recommend this school and church to anyone looking to create a better environment for their child.
