hi! So the thing is that I'm moving to Richmond Virginia, and I'm thinking about this school, because it seems a good middle school, and well I'm kind of nervous about it, and I don't know no one from there ! and if you can help me with this information it will great 1: Does this middle school is bilingual?? (Esl 1-2-3)) 2: good teachers? thanks! and I'm sorry it's because I don't know anything about this school !!! Thanks
I'm an 8th grader here at rms and i love it here! I'm going to miss it next year. The teachers and staff are amazing they are always there when you need them. But I think they need to improve on the bullying problems. The teachers need to be more aware of that. Other than that, RMS is great!
This is a great school the administration this year is ok but the best of all is the Glee club they are vey energetic but some kids don't know how to listen but overall this school is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!
I went to robious from 6th to the end of 7th grade. I recently moved, I currently go to bailey bridge. I don't like it at all! RMS was the best school I be ever been to. the teachers are amazing. if you are going into 7th grade you are in luck!! mrs. Coleman was the best teacher I've ever had she explains things so well. I will never forget her or what she taught me. my least favorite teacher was mrs. Robertson, she didnt care about you. she barley graded anything! I almost failed her class and I get all A's and B's. she also sent me out in the hall for smiling. rediculous!!! but ms. White is also a great teacher ! but if I had the chance I would go back to RMS any day!!!!
I am thinking of moving to this school district from the west end of Richmond , Henrico county. Do you think that this middle school rates as well or better in 2013 than the Henrico County middle school in Technology and teacher / student ratio, bullying and teacher teaching levels and approachability ???
Hopefully things are turning around at Robious now that Mr. Siddiqi is no longer there. He was more concerned about trying to be everyone's friend instead of a leader, and he drove that school into the ground while my children were there.
I had to have the school board on speed dial and saved to my cell phone has I could not get the principle J.Saddaqi to call me back. If it was possible to go anywhere else I would pack up my child and change schools in a second. One teacher asked my child if she was an American or a Mexican. My family fought in our revolution. How does a citizenship question have anything to do with my childs education. I was told the teacher would be spoken with about her attitude. REALLY and the apology to my child?
My child goes to Robious Middle and some of the teachers hare e had last year were disappointing. His science teacher never corrects any mistake on edline even though both me and my son has shown her the test paper grade and the one on edline are different and she never corrects it. His social studies teacher assigned a project every week or have 3 200+ point project every 9 weeks it overloads him and most of his friends that i met.
After 1 year at Robious, I would do anything to turn back time and send my daughter back to Moody Middle School in Henrico. This school is beyond a disappointment. Teachers do not keep information up to date online, some refuse to use the website. The office staff is stuck up and rude, the few times I ventured in for assistance I felt like I was a nuisance. The bus driver had absolutely no control, and to no surprise had an accident. Teachers do not seem to care, emails remain unanswered. Many times I tried to contact the school, the phones did not work, continual busy signal. Overall, by far one of the worst experiences for my daughter and myself.
I'm a seventh grader at Robious, and so far it's been an amazing experience. I've met some amazing people, and the teachers that I've had have been some of the best I've had in my life. I'm in the Center Based Gifted program, which is the highest level in levels of academic challenges, so it's basically a school within a school, and I absolutely love it. There's no doubt that I will stay in touch with my teachers after I graduate from Robious; every CBG teacher is very open and close to the students that they teach. Robious is an amazing school, and I'll be upset when I have to leave. :)
If you believe suspensions are warranted for normal 12 - 13 yo horseplay and behavior (e.g., one student was suspended for chewing gum after being asked to quit twice, another for throwing a nickel as gag at one of his buddies in class ), then Robius is the place for you.
My child's three years at Robious were definitely the worst of my life. Administration blindly ignores bullying, even when bruises are visible and tapes show it happening. They'll make you fill out bogus accident reports and send you on your way. Nothing was done to stop it. Robious has a big "no fighting" policy and you automatically get ten days of suspension for laying a hand on another student. The person bullying me had no consequence or even a warning, but I was told by an administrator if I retaliated I would be the first to get suspended. Teachers also ignored this. I feel that most teachers are either in the mentality that they can retire soon or they just don't care. A few good ones stand out but other than that you couldn't pay me enough to want to go back.
were crew not Passengers !!! Robious is amazing with the special ed dept they really love and care for my daughter like no other school ever has
County budget cuts have made a big impact on school programs and staffing this year. But thanks to the close knit Robious Middle school family -- teachers, administrators, students and parents -- Robious has made more from less. Our children continue to receive top notch education during tough times at the school we love!
Excellent schools are focused on quality learning for all students. At Robious, there is an understanding that a school is not effective unless all students have the opportunity to master the essential curriculum, regardless of demographic status or other non-school variables. There is a climate where students have a strong sense of belonging and being valued as individuals.
This school is a wonderful place to send a child. I know this as a parent and a teacher.
Robious Middle provides a different approach to help children learn. Expeditionary Learning is a student-driven, hands-on experience way to have the students experience learning in the field rather than memorizing from a textbook. The atmosphere at RMS is an exciting and invigorating one that promotes happy students and staff!
the teachers are very dedicated and all students receive an excellent education
