This post is not 100% accurate. The ethinicity is moreso 95% white and 3% black. Also what part of River Oaks BAPTIST School can you say is nonsectarian? The leadership is still new but so far is nothing short of 5 stars.

Both of my kids have been attending ROBS since Discovery (started at age 2). One is now in 4th grade and the other in 5th grade. My husband and I have found this school to be the perfect fit for our family. It provides and extremely strong academic curriculum for each grade, a loving/nurturing faith-based program, wonderful character development based on the Fruits of the Spirit, and beautiful facilities for our kids. The teachers and administration are top notch. You will pay a premium for this school but we have definitely found it worth every penny and then some!

Having gone to this school for nine years, I could not have been more pleased with everything it has to offer. This school educates EVERYBODY on the principles of respect for others, faith in Jesus Christ, and strong academics. If you are looking for a place that will teach your child to love God, be kind to all people no matter what background, and hard work this is the school to go to.

I have been an educator for over thirty years. The administration and faculty are the best people to work with to enlighten and engage these young children. I go to work everyday with enthusiasm....great kids, great facility, great co-workers, great parents...and a code of ethics shared by all.

Teachers! Teachers! Teachers! An administration that listens and reacts to parent concerns. A deep and profound interest in children and their welfare.

ROBS is a great place! My daughter has attended for 2 yrs going on 3 and She absolutely loves it! They are very caring and loving and also want to increase the diversity of the school, each year they hold an Open House - Focus on Diversity (Oct.) and welcome all cultures to attend. Contact the school for more information- Because they realize the world outside of school , especially in Houston has many different cultures and they want to expose students to many races, cultures and religions. Bravo, bravo! ROBS - It really is a wonderful community.

My children that attended River Oaks Baptist are now 19 and 16 years old. They attended River Oaks Baptist for a combined total of 21 years, whew! Not only have my children achieved academic success, but their moral character is well established. Without the strong role models, and exceptional support of the ROB staff and my parental peers, I might not have such wonderful children. ROB made my parenting job easy. When you have nearly grown children and you can look back and say 'wow, my kids are truly exceptional and whoa, I think it is their early education that made it all happen,' it is not only a great feeling, but credit must be given where credit is due. ROB, job well done.

A fine school that cares about each and every individual student. Compassionate teachers and administration. Top teachers, especially in Science and Math. Strong Latin program. Nice children who are taught to treat each other with respect from an early age through middle school.

I am a prospective ROBS parent and must say that from the moment my husband and I stepped through the doors for our interview and visit it exceeded every expectation we had for the quality education we are seeking for our children. The Administrators could not have been more sharing, open and excited about the chance to interact with us as a family. We have not been excepted yet but remain prayerful for the benfit of our children. It is very expensive, but it is good to know the financial strain can be offset by need based assistance that will help give our children the life changing experience of an education at ROBS.

I attended River Oaks Baptist from 1st grade through 8th. I believe that there is an excellent balance in the students' lives. The school helped form many aspects of the students personality, making us very well-rounded and very prepared as we entered high school. The computer classes helped me very much as I went on to high school, where I needed to know many terms and skills. I was one of few that knew everything, which helped my transition to high school be a little easier. The main remembrance I now hold so highly is how kind and caring the teachers are. I recently visited and all remembered my name and told stories of when I was enrolled. The school is a wonderful community and I strongly recommend that, if you are interested, you should pursue and learn more about the school/

I've heavily researched many Houston schools and sent my children to a more than a few- both public vanguard and private. In middle school - this school finally provides the balance I was looking for. Emphasis is placed on thinking skills and written and oral expression. Kids can't just memorize the material for a test -they must understand and be able to explain larger concepts to do well. Fortunately these teachers are dedicated and skilled enough get the lights turned on in those little heads. It is exciting to hear my child gush the moment they get in the car about what was learned that day. Expensive - but worth every penny (from one who struggles with the cost).

We have been parents of a child at ROBS for the past 15 years and we still feel you will not find a more nurturing, academically strong and fun place to go to school in the city.
