Hill Roberts is a terrible school .was fine but got worst in and out principals, new teachers each year, too much focus on mcas and tons of pressure on the kids. Principal "Scott Johnson" has communication issues, I hope he is not at the school next year. He also treats "SOME" children different from others!!!

Horrible school!! They have a large room with four classes separated by cheap foldable walls, the children cannot concentrate. The Principal "Scott Johnson" has communication issues, I hope he is not at the school next year. He also treats "SOME" children different from others, I could go on and on about this school.......

Hill Roberts is a terrible school .was fine but got worst in and out principals, new teachers each year, too much focus on mcas and tons of pressure on the kids. Non-professionalism, needed to speak with teacher regarding my child and issues in the classroom..teacher refused to pick up the phone, actually put my daughter on the phone instead so that she can tell me all was ok. Even secretary said, "oh I thought you were going to speak with the parent". Called 2 days ago, no response whatsoever from the teacher. We've been put on the back burner because the children and families are not of matter I guess. Horrible system, loose ends everywhere! I'm so glad I'm moving due to the school system making it impossible for me to want to stay. My children deserve better. By the way, classroom size are 25+ kids per teacher, not a good way to learn. My daughter has expressed not being able to focus due to too much noise in the class. Poor quality all around. Granted there is that one teacher in the building that really cares but there aren't enough to run a smooth school system. They don't care about the children. Nicer reviews a few years back, as I stated earlier it's just getting worst.

Have had three principal in the last three years. New teachers as the ones that are there don't last. There is something wrong there. The classrooms are CROWDED. Too much focus on MCAS. Unprofessional on top of all that. They need people who care working with our children. Good luck getting any type of response with them wether you call or go in person, they don't get back to you. RUN!

This school is way too focused on mcas scores. students who are expected to do well on the state tests don't seem to get any attention or encouragement to reach full potential. Gifted kids??? nothing here for them. Special needs kids??? nope, no services for them either unless you fight tooth and nail for them. Attleboro is notorious for denying needed services. There are some amazing teachers, but they are fighting an uphill battle. The administration is terrible. There is a big turnover rate of principals across Attleboro district. September 2013 will bring the third principal in as many years. Seems to be a sign that the culture is bad from the top down.

Having switched my children to Hill-Roberts this year, I must admit that I was concerned about how the curriculum would compare to the private school they attended previously. I am SO impressed with Hill-Roberts. The principal is outstanding and the curriculum is both challenging and creative. I look forward to my youngest attending this fall... There is ALWAYS something community oriented going on at the school. I couldn't be happier...

We moved to Attleboro from Mansfield over a year ago and my son loves Hill Roberts. I am very impressed with his homework and the extra curricular activites as well as the many social activities that they hold during the year. My son is excelling in reading & math and gets challenging homework. The class room sizes are small and the teachers seem wonderful and caring. Hill Roberts has superior security in place and is not so big which makes it more community-like and not quite as confusing.

Hill-Roberts has been the best placement for my son. We moved here last year and the school provided an educational rich and fun learning environment. They have YMCA programs, after school enrichment, and many school activities. I have a 3 year old daughter who I am excited to have at Hill-Roberts soon.

A school that is so singularly focused on MCAS scores that they neglect the core educational needs. They are so concerned about their MCAS scores they attempt to retain children from entering the 3rd grade until they are able to score well. The school does not provide extra-curricular activities or performances to demonstrate the child's learned skills or to give an opportunity for the child to shine. This is the first elementary school I have seen that has never invited parents to a 'show' or had a father/daughter or mother/son event or similar parent/child activity to build self esteem. Over the years, my children (multiple ages) have been in 4 different school districts and Attleboro is by far the least advantageous for my children. It has a distracting open class room environment (4 classes together w/ only a book case to separate).

Having 1 daughter in 1st grade, I have found this school to be FANTASTIC. The teachers and staff truly care. Music, Art, Gym, Computer, Library facilities and more are available to every child. The PTO is sure that all parents have the opportunity to be as involved as they want. You receive calendars with extra curricular activities throughout the year that draw the children in and incorporate school and civic involvement. Cultural diversity is accepted and the children are allowed to express themselves without fear of admonishment. I would give this school an A+.
