I am a former student of Robertsville Middle School and glad to be a former student also. Throughout my 4 years there I was bullied and teased and the administrative staff did nothing about it. The school is organized to where you never see any of the fifth or sixth graders (to make sure they don't get bullied by the seventh and eighth graders, even though it still happens). Two of the gym coaches just choose boys to lead the stretches in P.E. The Student Council there is a joke (Like most Student Councils), and I was not at all prepared for High School. The most of the kids from Jefferson (School across town.) were able to adjust to high school easier leaving the rest of us in the dark. The only joy I found in this school was the technology courses (They had tons of them), TSA (Technology Student Association), and eighth grade English. If you are moving to a home/apartment zoned for Robertsville Middle School you need to seriously consider going to Jefferson Middle School (The Middle School across town).

This school is very good at eloping students succeed. Especially in reading. The developmental teacher is wonderful in teaching the children how to pick out info needed and giving her students one in one time if needed. My daughter had trouble with some bullying but I had emailed the teacher it the room it happened in and emailed the vice principal and it was settle in a timely manner and the student punished appropriately. My daughter is now going into high school and I feel she is ready academcally as well as socially. This is a wonderful school and I am looking forward to my son going there next year!!

I'm a former student of Robertsville, and completely disagree with the high ratings given to it. As written by others, the amount of bullying that happens in this school is uncalled for. (Very) poor authority and lack of caring cause this. The administrative staff do very little to resolve situations. What usually happens is that the bully gets a "slap on the hand", and the child being picked on is lectured and told to ignore it (observed from personal experiences and from friends/others). As for the acedemic part of the school, it's alright. Definitely not the best by any standards, but not the worst either. In short, one would be better off choosing a different middle school to attend. Nothing would be lost education-wise, and almost garunteed emotional/physical pain would be avoided.

There is several thing that i could put on here. Lets start with My child was touched by another studen in the gym. The first time it happened the teacher that my child told did NOTHING!!!! So insted of this being taken care of it happened again. This time during gym class. Well there was somthing done then. The principal just took her in his office and talked to her(nothing was done). It took my husband & I going up there to get something done! The teachers are all to busy having there nose stuck up in the air to even care about there students. The kids are way out of control at this school.

I am a student at Robertsville Middle School and wonder why there aren't any negative reviews. In light of their absence and my having nothing better to do, I will write one. I have noticed that the majority of the teachers at RMS have an authority complex. Many of them also tend to turn a blind eye to bullying, and on a rare occasion, I have even seen teachers engage in this deplorable act themselves. I am disturbed that there is an entirely religiously themed club at this public school (see 'Youth 4 Christ'.) However, the existence of this club opens up some interesting possibilities. I am considering starting a Students For Cthulu club. (Or perhaps one of a similar nature made in reverence, instead, to The Flying Spaghetti Monster. May his noodly appendages reach out and warm the hardened hearts of all Non-Flying Spaghetti Monster Believers.) =^.^=
