I love this school. I have had two children complete their elementary education here and 2 more still enrolled. I continue to be impressed with their staff and commitment to all aspects of the children. From their self esteem and ethics to their academics and test scores. I bought a house last year and my only criteria was that my home had to be located in this schools area. It's just that good.

We have had 2 kids go through this school and must say that it is such a wonderful school! The principal is the best--the kids love him and he is very "hands on" (even if he is a Steelers fan; we'll forgive him on that one). The teachers are great and really care about the kids. The school as a whole is very innovative--it has an organic garden and new butterfly pavilion where kids can experience nature. It did have a multi-age tract which I'm disappointed was cut from the budget this year though they assure us that the classroom structure will continue in the multi-age format which is small developmental/skill groups that allow the teachers to teach to the kids where they are at academically instead of taking a "one size fits all" approach. They are also not obsessed with "the Test" and include all sorts of fun/experiential things in their curriculum. The other nice thing is that they do not get letter grades. Their report cards consist of many skill areas in each subject and reflect if those skills are being achieved...a much more accurate and helpful way of measuring learning! We love this school!
Robeson is an amazing elementary school. We have found it to be very family friendly. The principal Mr. McKay is amazing as well as all the teachers. We are so happy with every aspect of this great school!
An excellent school. Caring teachers; strong curriculum; extremely safe. I believe this school is the highest scoring school on the state assessments in Berks County.
