It was complete joy to have our daughter be apart of the Red Foxes at Roberts. The teachers and coaches have a true love for what they do and that is seen in their interactions with students both at school and in the community. I am a father and will miss my daughter not attending Rob. but know that your child will be in caring, loving, supportive hands with their staff. Mrs. McFarland has a wonderful vision for the future of Roberts and has a keen eye for character development. Thank you for making our daughter's first year in school a wonderful success.

We've been very pleased with the attitudes & culture at Roberts. We have a Special Needs family member who is in the best possible class situation. Roberts makes every effort to meet the needs of each student. As we pick up this child every day we see an extremely well-run school in which respect, kindness, inclusion, order & high ideals are valued & displayed.

We had both of our children at Roberts. One was in ESE and one not. I thought the ESE teacher's that our daughter had we're fantastic. I can't believe what I'm reading about the ESE program. There were some things that I didn't agree with, but they were discussed and handled. The confidence that she left with was due to that amazing team. Our other daughter had a wide variety of teacher personalities throughout the years, which made her a stronger, more confident student and person. I think a lot of those teachers up there care and love all of their students.

this school is full of hypocrites and teachers pretend to care for our children, when in fact they really do not care. all this school worries about is making money and the children who are in ese are mistreated. ese is the worse possible place for any child to be. beware of these foxes and their smiles on their faces, because as the name shows it, a fox is a fox!!! parents, roberts is an environment where all staff memebers worry about is statistics! this school is a shame

I had a child on the honor roll at Roberts the administration want her to repeat the 3rd. Why so my child s test scores would not count toward the school grade. Also so in the future it would not matter what my child scored on the FACT they could pass my child because an ESE child need only be retained once. How was this helping my child? If you have an ESE child do not send them to Roberts or any public school. They don t care about the child just the school grade.

My child was bullied at Roberts. The principal and teachers did nothing to protect my child.

In the 2011 county-wide writing contest for both public and private schools, Roberts was the only elementary school with finalists at every grade level. With seven finalists in the Kindergarten category alone, it is obvious that they offer quality education in writing.

I just got done giving a presentation to the kindergarten class. I was impressed from the moment I walked into the front office. The school is very secure. You are required to give your driver's license for background check as a visitor. I was escorted to the class. The teacher had wonderful things for science and nature. Lots of reptiles, a bunny, eggs in an incubator about to hatch. Wonderful demeanor toward the kids. The media center is better than our community library.

Roberts Elementary dedicates itself to quality education for the children who attend. The teachers and other staff are committed to the individuality of the students and their needs. My child has been at Roberts since it opened in Fall of 2001. This fall my middle child will enter kindergarten there. I am proud of Roberts Elementary and support it's efforts to educate our children. Hillary Clinton once said 'it takes a village to raise our children', I am proud to be a part of the Roberts Elementary village.

I had a daughter who had to transfer to Roberts in the Forth grade. She was not happy, but with the help of the Guidence Counciler and her fourth grade teacher, my daughter was able to adjust. Her fifth grade year she achieved straight A's for all four semesters, something she could not do at her old school. As a parent volunteer I came in contact with many of the staff and teachers I felt everyone was a delight to work with. This school just opened two years ago, but you would think it has been around for awhile, because of its high standards.
