About ROBS

Founded as a mission of a small Baptist church in the heart of Houston, ROBS’ Christian identity is a cornerstone of its academic philosophy. Now, more than 65 years after its inception, the two-part mission remains a steady compass.

Our purpose is purposefully designed around how kids learn best. Much like the growth mindset we promote among our learners, we are continuously enhancing our research-based curriculum with modern advances in brain science, social emotional learning, differentiated instruction, and educational psychology. As a result, kids love learning at ROBS.

Mission Statement

The mission of River Oaks Baptist School is to prepare its students to meet life’s challenges and lead tomorrow’s world through a superior educational program undergirded by faith in Jesus Christ and Christian principles.

We believe that strong foundations are built upon:

  • Balanced growth of the interdependent aspects of human nature—intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, and social.
  • Principles of responsibility, diligence, and cooperation, as well as respect for diversity and the dignity of the individual; and
  • Skills in critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and effective communication.

We believe that our students will reach their fullest growth in a school environment which:

  • Encourages students, faculty, and staff to see themselves as uniquely created by God with special qualities and gifts for development;
  • Balances high expectations with developmentally-appropriate nurturing; and
  • Works cooperatively with parents in concert with the School’s mission for the benefit of the student.
