C.A. Roberts Elementary School The teachers are wonderful! I haven't had a lot of interaction with the Principal or administration but both of my kids loved their teachers. This school of course focuses on teaching and learning but they also don't forget that kids need to have fun. The previous school we attended in Bartow County focused so much on learning that my kids didn't like school. There was hardly any fun incorporated in with the teaching. We love Roberts and the rating should definitely be higher than a 6.

I have had two children attend this school through 5th grade and we absolutely loved Roberts. Great faculty and staff each year! Mr. Gregaydis and Mrs. White were great administrators. They were present at every school function and went above and beyond the call of duty to insure parents and students alike felt welcomed. Academically, my children were challenged each year. Parent/Teacher communication was stellar. The atmosphere encouraged an excitement about learning and there were plenty of extracurricular activities for students to participate in. Hats off to the Art and Music Departments. Keep stimulating those little brains! Fundraising was appropriate relative to the level of resources made available. Only thing I can complain about was the traffic jam getting kids to and fro. Otherwise I highly recommend this school. It's safe, academically challenging, diverse, inclusive with a true family atmosphere!

My children have attended this school since Kindergarten and are now in the 5th grade. The support staff members (this includes even the custodians!) are attentive and the teachers are awesome. Mr. G, the principal, does an excellent job of providing leadership to the school along with his administrative staff. I'm glad I live in C.A. Robert's district!

Roberts ES. is a fantastic school Everyone really works hard to benefit the children. I do not feel like I'm being constantly hounded for money. Anyone who gets involved in the school understands how much it costs to provide all the great programs we have. No one has to donate, just through the request away. If they still have a problem w/ requests being made, maybe that person has a guilty conscience & isn't participating as much as they could! All in all Great School, Faculty, PTA & Staff!!

The teachers here are amazing! A very clean and organized school as well. My only complaint is they are constantly asking for money, donations, etc. I also do not like the fact that they implement the rule (at least in Kindergarten and 1st grade I know) that the children have to put all of their new school supplies in a box for everyone to use. It's hard for them to have anything different (folders, crayons, etc). But in all is a really great school.

This school 'family' goes above and beyond the call of a schools requirements as far as I am concerned. My daughter has been at Roberts for five years. The administration at this school is outstanding. The staff works as a team. The overwhelming parent involvement backs up the organization and leadership of this school. They shoot for the stars at Roberts!

We are a military family. My husband is stationed at Dobbins ARB. We moved to Dallas last year. This is the BEST school my kids have ever attended. Parent participation is excellent and extracurricular activities and fundraising programs are outstanding. In addition, the teachers and staff are very kind and patient with the children. I can't say enough about how great Roberts Elementary really is-Go Rockets!

C.A. Roberts is the best school I could have ever chosen for my son. The entire staff has proven that they have my sons best interest at heart. I would never choose another school.
