    I would have given 4.5 stars but that wasn't possible hence the 5 stars. We decided to try Roberts for our youngest child after sending our older two to private schools from pre-k. We were weary of tuition increases and a little tired of some of the "attitude". So far (2.5 years) the program at Roberts is very good albeit with shorter kindergarten days and less politically correct "fluff" ( learning songs in other languages etc- which I can attest are promptly forgotten). Teacher quality varies a bit but overall- very good. I don't know that we will keep our child in the Upper Merion Schools for middle school but we are very pleased currently.

    The best thing about a school has to be its teachers and Roberts Elementary certainly has them. From classroom teachers to specialized support and a very involved and dedicated principal we are fortunate to be part of the Roberts school community. The school also has an active PTC hosting many events beloved by the children. The school building itself is new and state-of-the-art is beautifully equipped and has a great outdoor space. High recommended.

    Upper Merion School District has got to be the best in Pa. Roberts staff is the most caring personable group we have ever met. Hands down the best program around.

    Great School. My Elder daughter has completed K-4 in this school. Been a great school for her especially in Academic respect. She was involved in Music & Art. Still remember her old music teacher. My Younger one is in 1st grade. Doing great there. Is learning violin and can play couple of tunes in less than a year. A lot of parent volunteers and school encourages that a lot.
