My daughter has just finished Robertsville today. :( She was literally crying whens she came home- the teachers are amazing as well as the PTO members. We were honestly thinking of moving but then we thought again and realized that this school is unreplacable. :) I have 2 more kids who can't wait ot have their train ride at Robertsville :)
My son has only just started a few months ago at this school in grade one. Since we have travelled and moved interstate within the last 2 years we have experienced 2 other schools since kindergarten in NYC and in another state and I am fairly happy with the school so far. His teacher is really excellent at working with children who may have needs and appears very organized and caring. I am overall impressed and happy with the curriculum and there is quite a bit of variety in their special studies from gym, health, computers, library, music, and art. The buses run like clock work and the PTO is very active and keep parents involved and informed. The only negatives would be not a great deal of playground equipment and facilities, and limited extra-curricular activities. Otherwise so far so good.
The academic program of Robertsville is great. At fourth and fifth grades, the students are grouped into their leveled programs for English and Math, to give them a chance to accelerate or get solid basic depending on what they need. They learn a second language, French or Spanish starting at second grade. They have music, art, gym, and computer class about once a week. I don't think they have science or math fair. there's an band at fifth grade. The PTA of the school is very active.
The principal at Robertsville is excellent, very caring. In addition my kids thoroughly enjoyed GYM. The gym teacher Mr K is great. The education and teachers were great except for one really bad teacher. the rest of the staff is excellent. The only extracurricular activities are BAND. The BAND teacher is excellent at robertsville as well.
