Careers

Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to attract and develop one of the most devoted and creative teaching teams in greater Houston. And candidates often wonder what we’re looking for. ROBS hires inquisitive, adept teachers from a vibrant array of backgrounds and experiences, who feel called to educate children.  

It’s 1,000 times better in just about every way. ROBS students are the sweetest and most respectful kids I’ve gotten to work with. The resources are unparalleled. My colleagues are great! And I’m paid better at ROBS than in public school.”

ROBS Middle School teacher, on how it differs from her previous schools

Ambitious, flexible teaching

Walk into a ROBS classroom and chances are you won’t immediately spot the teacher. Grounded by a student-focused approach to learning, our academic curriculum builds upon itself comprehensively with each grade, gaining complexity and depth while maintaining a fluidity that allows our teachers to be as imaginative and courageous as our students.

Program-driven spaces

Because we believe the way we learn should inspire the way our physical spaces function, our teachers and administrators continuously work toward designing classrooms that foster integrated, resourceful thinking in every subject area and across all disciplines. Our campus embraces families in the sometimes messy, always energetic environment of joy-filled learning. 

“It’s nice to have ownership over the curriculum and not have to build the lessons around passing a standardized test. And we receive so much support from administrators, learning specialists, counselors, and department chairs.”
