“My 3 kids have been at Bill Roberts from ECE through middle school. I have found my kids’ experience at Bill Roberts to be outstanding. The teachers are stellar, and the entire staff, administration and teachers, is always working hard to make the school even better for its students, and that includes the middle school. I find the school’s focus on the development of the whole child particularly effective at preparing its students for high school and life after Bill Roberts.”
