Robert Crown Elementary in Wauconda, IL provides a great environment for my kids to learn and grow. They are excited to go to school every morning, they love their teachers every year, they love the friends they make there and I love the values they teach beyond the curriculum in the classroom. Robert Crown teaches kids how to be their own person and respect those around them. I have observed great growth in how our girls develop as students and people because of Robert Crown. The school literally gets better every year and the town continues to grow. I will be sad when our girls move out of Robert Crown into the Middle School but I know they will be prepared for success based on their time at Robert Crown Elementary.

I feel especially capable of giving Robert Crown high marks for teacher quality, principal leadership, and parent involvement. After a disappointing few years at a local private school where the educators focused on what your child was NOT doing, Robert Crown focuses on what they CAN do! They see the potential for success in every child and create a plan to support them academically, socially, and emotionally. The leaders at this school, Carrie Diol and Angela Pichetti, and the teachers are very accessible for communication and seem to know every child by name! The teachers we have experienced so far are very experienced. Whether they are looking for unique ways to motivate and keep you child focused, or responding to parent communication, its apparent that they are committed to the children. Parental involvement through PTO sponsored activities is very high and they are always welcoming to new members. We are so happy to be at Robert Crown School!

Robert Crown is a wonderful place for you children to grow up. The staff at Robert Crown are caring and compassionate. They truly want students to do their best. Staff are so welcoming of parent volunteers and foster a team approach to learning. The school is staffed with so many specialists to assist children when needed extra support. I feel so fortunate that my children attend such a wonderful place to learn and grow.

This school has been excellent for my daughter who is now entering the 4th grade. She has improved her math skills significantly, and I think that is in no small part due to the hard work of her teachers. I think it's a great school that gets overlooked.

Robert Crown - The teachers and new principle and assistant principle have been wonderful with working with my child. They have made a big difference in her academics and social skills. They don't give up - they keep trying different ways to help your child. Thumbs up to this team of teachers.

My wife and I love Robert Crown Elementary school. We really liked our daughter's previous elementary school in Grayslake, where she attended K through 2, but then we had nothing else to compare that school to until know, because she is our first to attend school. The teachers at our old school were phenomenal, but the total education experience at Robert Crown is head and shoulders above our previous elementary school. We stopped in at the school this summer and were greeted most enthusiastically by the Principal, himself (who is retiring this year--we congratulate him!) From Math to PE to Art to Music to Recess, my daughter is ecstatic with the school and I am ecstatic with her math progress. At my daughter's previous school they were not allowed to touch the snow at recess--at RC they go sledding at recess--wow, we went from hyper-retentive school to "cool old school." Now, to many parents this may not be a significant point, to me it illustrates how much better the vibe can be from one elementary school to another. Many little things make a big thing and there are so many little things that make a difference for us at Robert Crown. We are giving two thumbs up :-) to RC!

Overcrowded. My child has 29 or 30 children in his class. One teacher cannot manage to teach and attend to a class this size, particularly with a high percentage of ESL students in this class. And yet, intradistrict or out of district moves are not permitted. Other schools in district are NOT as crowded and average 22 per class.

My children used to attend this school. Not only was this school unable to properly teach my children, but a majority of the teachers and administrators weren't interested in working as hard as the students worked. School was advesarial towards parents that questioned their abilities and pointed out their shortcomings. School was sooo poor, sold my home in a down market just to get out!!!!

My son who is now in Matthews Middle School attended Robert Crown for 1st through 5th grade. He had an IEP every year, and they worked with him and his 'problem' or 'issue'. They were caring and tried different things when one thing did not work. He no longer has an IEP and is integrated into Middle School ( a little rough for a month or two) and now is in High academic Honors. Robert Crown was excellent for my Son who had 'issues'. I give it an excellent. I now have a Kindergartener there and his experience is just as excellent at the first son.

The school is fine if your child doesn't have issues, but they have a history of passing the buck or playing a waiting game to address learning disabilities issues they are not equipped or willing to handle.

You couldn't ask for a more nurturing environment than Robert Crown. The facility, the teachers, the administration, the parent involvement are outstanding. I fell in love with this school the first time I set foot inside, and grew to love it more each year my son was a student there.

My daughter transfered this year from St. Matthew to Robert Crown and I have to say that I am impressed. Teachers really seem to care and for the first time in a while, my daughter looks forward to going to school.
