Our child has been at Roberts from Kindergarten through 5th grade, and we couldn't be more satisfied with the outstanding education she's received. The communication from teachers each year was excellent; the principal is committed to maintaining and improving the high level of student academic achievement (despite budget cuts from the Texas legislature); the parent community is diverse and supportive of one another; and the fine arts programs are a delight and thoroughly enjoyed by the children. Roberts' is everything a neighborhood school should be.

Our children have been at Roberts Elementary collectively for over eight years now and both have had very good experiences there. We especially appreciate the IB program and the diversity. The principal works tirelessly to keep the standards high, while keeping in mind the safety and overall well being of the children and the staff. This is our last year there and we will miss it tremendously.

We've been at Roberts for many years now and have children in several grades. We have been very happy with the instruction at Roberts and the teachers. The Principal has managed cuts to funding and changing HISD policies very well, and she is very clear and focused on the IB/Fine Arts mission of the school. My children have friends whose families come from all over the world, and that diversity at Roberts is one of its strengths. I have found the teachers to be very approachable. I'm not sure how a parent made it through the year without talking to the teachers - there are several times for conferences, both formal and informal. As a parent, you've got be proactive about your child's education. Overall, we've been very pleased with the school. All the surrounding schools are great, but we prefer the IB program at Roberts above all!

I also wonder how this school gets a 10. 3rd grade was terrible for my child. Inexperienced, bad teacher and overcrowded classroom. Child went backwards. No communication from school or teacher about child's needs. Not sure what is being taught. Only time she was taught was for standardized testing.

I will rate in minus. Poor Management. Very Very arrogant front office staff and teachers too.I wonder how it gets a 10 out of 10 rating. No response from principal for parents emails.I do not recommend this school. I recommend Mark Twain and I rate 10 out of 10 to that school. They are very friendly natured staff,kind teachers. Every one respect parents time.

We have been a Roberts family for 7 years - 5 years with an older child and younger one is in 4th grade. Overall Roberts is a good fine arts magnet and very good IB program. The diversity of kids and proximity to medical center/Rice University make it a school attended by kids from highly educated families. In junior years the kid stays largely with the classroom teacher and it is the luck of the draw which teacher you get. We have had some excellent years - 4th & 2nd grades for both my kids were outstanding due to their teachers - some okay and some not-so-good teachers. The Art teacher is outstanding. Music is good. The loss of a spanish teacher has been a negative factor for us in recent years. The increasing use of technology to replace live teach-to-student interaction is a negative trend in my view. Still, it is a good school.

My daughter is in her second year with Roberts and she could not be happier. Academically we are pleased, the friends she made are wonderful and the teachers so far have all been excellent. Administration is on top of everything. Let's hope the issue of the state-wide vanishing magnet program will have little impact on the quality of eduction at Roberts.

Roberts is phenonmenal. The teachers go above and beyond with all of the students. The principal is great. I never met anybody for the first time that knew so much about my child prior to us meeting her. The parents and faculty are so friendly and truly care about the well being of the students, teachers, and the school over-all. The school is very diverse and celebrates those diversities. I have done all that I can to make sure that my children remain in Roberts until it is time for them to attend middle school.

Roberts is a unique school in that the parents are very active in ensuring that the teachers have state-of -the-art, exemplary continuing education so that our children measure as exemplary students. The school is a very big advocate of multiculturalism, the arts and technology. Roberts elementary is not just a school, it's a community that has committees to make others (especially those who may be going through hard times feel welcome.

We visited 6 exemplary/ recognized schools before purchasing in the Roberts Zone. What was most striking was how the children there seemed genuinely happy. The teachers go above and beyond to make that happen. For example, the music teacher brings her pet singing bird to school everyday and keeps him in the room. She hand pained a 2 story rain forest mural for his backdrop. Seeing it enough to make you cry. After having been there a year, we are still just as pleased, and I was a room mom in my son's class- very involved. The PTO is a large reason for their success. Their large contributions buy things like tap shoes and roller blades for entire grade levels, workshops for teachers, and cutting edge technology. This place is top notch. You can't go wrong sending your kid here.

My son went to Roberts from K to 5. Robets helped him with is speech, and his dyslexia. He has become so confident in his speech he ran for class president! That is not all, the ancillary and after care were great. He adored his Art Club, and Mr. T from P.E. has been a great influence on my son. Roberts has kids from over a dozen differnt nations, and here you see Moms who wear an Islamic Head scarf dropping off their kids, while other kids have Dad's over in Iraq with the Army Reserve, and there has never been a problem. At Roberts everyone gets along. I can't say enough good things about it.

I have 2 children currently attending Roberts Elementary. There is no otherschool like itbin the city of Houston. As an IB World School, Roberts Elementary educates students from 43 different countries, speaking 23 different languages. My children are exposed to a multitude of cultures and traditions from around the globe. The yeachers receive 'cutting edge' training that differs from all other HISD schools. The work that my children bring home is 'Unbelievable.' Recently, I had the opportunity to visit a different, neighboring, HISD school. It was dark and depressing to say the least. Any one person could enter our school and the walls speak for themselves.

My daughter has just started Kindergarten at Roberts and she is absolutely thrilled to go to school each day. I have found her teacher to be extremely motivated to get the best out of each of the students. The other teachers seem equally motivated to get the best from their students. The types of classes offered in the K year (and all years) compares equally to the best private school in the Houston area. The high parental involvement in all aspects is an added plus. The school-wide extra-curricular activities (International Festival, Carnival and the like) involve the whole school community. The mix of students is impressive and it's IBPYP designation are just icing on the cake. I can't imagine sending my child to any other school.

Great school with wonderful teachers and a caring principal. One of only 30 elementary schools in the country to be certified for the IB Primary Years Program. And one of a handful of HISD elementary schools to secure an Exemplary from the TEA in 2004.

We are neighborhood students at Roberts as opposed to a magnet student. As a public school in HISD, we are extremely pleased with the education at Roberts. The wide diversity of families is a great real world experience for children. Your child can have an accent, or have a difficult 'foreign' name and at Roberts that is a cool thing! I always thought Roberts was a small school, but just realized by reading greatschool.net, that it is actually larger than average. There is a thight knit community feel to the school because the parent involvement is great. The teacher population is a good mix of men and women with many ethnic populations represented by the faculty and staff. Don't worry, as a fine arts school, your child will also get a good education in math and science. The school's scores in these areas match those of science magnet schools.

My student is a 5th grader at roberts and we have been there since kindergarten. We have only had one year that was not just outstanding. Most of the teachers are kind and helpful with the exception of one who is good if your child is 'perfect' but not wiling to put in the extra effort to support children that need even the slightest bit of extra attention. Over all ithas been a good experience and I have highly recommend this school to friends.
