Middle School

Who will your child become? Let’s find out together. Our Middle School program thoughtfully stewards our students’ transformation from children to teens. We love this important stage in a young person’s life, with all the intellectual, physical, and social-emotional changes it brings. The burst of neural activity during this window makes Middle School a prime time to embrace new experiences and pursue bigger challenges.

As we continue to build a strong academic foundation, we also offer myriad opportunities for your child to explore—on the sports field, in the arts studio, behind the camera, in the Maker Space, and on stage. You will watch your child blossom in our well-planned balance of nurture and challenge, responsibility and support. At ROBS, we are devoted to preparing children for all that comes next.

Because our preschool – eighth grade trajectory is an essential part of our “secret sauce,” we delight in supporting you and your child through the high school selection process. Our goal? Helping you and your child find that “best fit” school, and we do. Year after year, our graduates matriculate into Houston’s best high schools and some of the nation’s finest boarding schools.
