Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
September 03, 2015
Well there are teachers that just dont care ! Teachers not teaching at all just throwing assignments at the kids when it was never explained.. Teachers that act like they care an want to help your child but yet afraid of the principal to stand up for themselves an the students ...

There is a small amount of respect in the students .. The children are no different than a school full of thousands of kids dont let the small town fool you

This school shows no caring or empathy in the students .. They dont listen to the kids , they dont put faith in them unless your related in some way then maybe they will listen other than that your child doesnt have a chance

This school is a joke they try and get children to lie on other kids by scaring them so they will say what the principal wants them to say .. They dont believe in the children its their way or no way ..

I have three children at this school at first i thought it was a good school . but as time went on all three of my children complained that there are teachers that dont actually teach . teachers are arguing with students, teachers that say something is okay to do then when the principal enters the room they lie abd say they did not give permission. The principal and vice principal are nice at first then they become self centerd none caring disrespectful people who contradict everything they say.. Dont let them fool you they dont care for your children. The school needs a major upgrade just look around just last year they didn't even have doirs on the stalls in the boys restroom. Teachers go in the same restroom as the kids...id advise you to stay out of this school i wish my kids could go else where. Oh and if your child has a disability this is most definitely the wrong school..my friends child has a disability and they couldn't wait to get her child out of there..

East Robertson is a beautiful and clean school. The principals truly cares for the teachers and students. Coach Chatman and the other coaches require the athletes to focus on academics first, and they help prevent discipline problems in class for optimal learning to occur. The teachers work hard and have a real love of their students and subject area, and they take pride in themselves and show school spirit. I would like to see more parent involvement in the middle school. This is the first middle school we have attended that does not have a PTO. I hope someone will start one again soon.

There is a lot of small town poltics that goes on at this school . A student must have the correct last name or go to church with a teacher / coach or mom and dad should be friends with a teacher or coach. If not then your out of luck. A lot of favoritism goes on.As far as the conduct policy it doesn't apply to all students just the ones that don't have above listed. Most of the teacher's are so self absorb its crazy. You go there with a compliant and it goes in one ear & out the other. Now as far as the school being run down I don't agree. There are a few teachers whom come in a little early to tutor.

I find it laughable that anyone would rate this school positively in any way. I have Two children attending ERHS and it is underfunded, poorly staffed and run down. They seem to have no money for music/arts programs, no help for children needing tutoring, and seem to be against parental involvement unless of course it regards sports in any way. Dont attempt to visit or eat lunch with your child either, they dont have enough tables in the cafeteria. The school is run more like a juvinile detention center, or perhaps a prison. The Principal is often absent, and the vice principal seems overwhelmed with the job reqirements. robertson county schools are a terrible excuse for a learning facility. this school is anti- parent, and often overlooks its own policies, as if it has no regulations to follow. parent beware.

We chose to send our daughter to East Robertson after being dissatisfied with another high school in the county. We have been so pleased with the overall atmosphere at East, especially the caring teachers and staff. East has a small town, small school feel, and I feel very comfortable letting my child stay for after-school activities, unlike the school we came from.

I have two daughters enrolled in ERHS. One senior and a sophomore. I feel that my girls are getting what they need academically. I feel welcome and even encouraged to participate in anything going on. Rick Ballard is a wonderful leader and the Cross Plains community strives to uphold strong Christian values. I have two younger children also and look forward to them being a part of the ERHS 'family' as well.

I send my three girls to ERHS (driving 18 miles twice a day) and if I had it to do all over again I would do it the very same way. Two of my girls have completed college and have good jobs, the third one is presently attending college. ERHS prepared the girls with the life skills they needed to be successful scholastically and socially. The school structure and the teacher support makes the environment at ERHS safe and very conducive to learning.
