Curriculum Highlights

Students in classroom

My kids have had ten teachers here so far and I am always impressed by their creativity, energy and true caring. I’ve seen how great teachers enhance the curriculum to make is work best for their classroom. What my kids are learning here is amazing.

Instruction and Learning

At Bill Roberts, our team focuses on cognitive thinking strategies to promote deeper level learning. Students here are encouraged, and expected, to be able to explain their thinking and problem solve in order to find resolution. Our team shares a common belief in focusing on student strengths when it comes to academic performance and behavior rather than working from a deficit model. Other highlights of our academic program include:

Going Beyond the Classroom

We know that much of your child’s education will happen in the classroom, but believe that as a school we can do so much more. Our teachers collaborate with students’ previous teachers and use their colleague’s insight and data to ensure a seamless transition from grade to grade. Bill Roberts also employs specialized, highly-qualified intervention teachers who are dedicated to the support and development of students at every level of instruction within the academic spectrum including those on the Gifted and Talented (GT) and Highly Gifted & Talented (HGT) spectrum, as well as those needing special education and/or English language acquisition.

A Focus on Health and Wellness

Strong minds need strong bodies. At Bill Roberts we are committed to both the mental and physical growth and well being of our students. We encourage physical wellness through our participation in programs like the 100 Mile Run Club, Girls on the Run, and an annual Field Day among others. Our PTA has an active Health and Wellness Committee that is creative and dedicated to meeting our kids’ needs each year to have a healthy school.

Always Striving to Be Better

Bill Roberts has been recognized as a Top Performing School and a High Growth School every year since 2009, and is the only Stapleton Elementary/E-8 school, and only one out of 19 DPS schools, to be awarded the Governor’s Award for Distinguished Improvement.

We’re not done, not even close. Our commitment to excellence means we never stop improving. We will continue to challenge ourselves and our team to be better, to do more, to inspire and engage, and to continue to build upon what we learn. At Bill Roberts, the learning never ends.
