My son has always been challenged at Bill Roberts. His teachers have always made sure that he has the opportunity to extend his learning in the classroom and the GT pullout program adds another level of engagement and challenge to his education. I am happy with the way that his needs as a gifted learner have been met at every grade level.
We are a fifth year Bill Roberts family. I am astounded every year how each teacher is able to use his/her creativity to teach each child differently. The administration gives the teachers all the power and allows them to teach in their own individual way. The parent community is very supportive and my kids are thriving !
From the minute my children attended Bill Roberts, I was amazed by the incredible sense of community and pride. Parents and teachers are very involved in all aspects of the school. The staff is wonderful and welcoming. And not to leave out the most important thing, my kids love Bill Roberts and being Bobcats!
My family LOVES Bill Roberts, and each one of our children has had nothing short of a great experience at this school. The administration and staff are so committed to making the school a welcoming, safe yet academically stimulating place to be. There are countless ways for parents to be involved in their child's experience at Bill Roberts. Great school all around!
If I could dream up the perfect school for our family I would dream up Bill Roberts. One of the school's greatest strengths is the ability of the staff to differentiate instruction so that kids learning at all different levels and paces are being challenged just the right amount. For example, each child in my son's class gets their own individualized homework assingments at their level. Other strengths of the school include the enthusiastic and exceptionally well-qualified staff, the academic rigor, the committed parents, a strong sense of community, and really nice kids. In my mind, Bill Roberts is the gold standard in public education.
We moved to Bill Roberts from another DPS school at the beginning of this school year and we're amazed by the differences. A totally engaged community, wonderful teachers who embrace communication, and a well-rounded academic program make this a standout school. We're happy to be here.
