2019 National Blue Ribbon School
Means the U.S. Department of Education has singled out ROBS as a model of best practice for schools around the country.
6:1 student : faculty
Bigger isn’t always better. At ROBS every student is learning and every student is loved.
33% students of color
Representation matters. Communities of diverse identities enrich academic experiences (and track better outcomes).
100% of faculty with advanced training
All ROBS faculty receive additional training each year, keeping them at the top of their field.
40+ zip codes represented
Nestled in the heart of Houston’s urban landscape, ROBS isn’t your typical neighborhood school.
98% graduates admitted to their high school of choice
High schools tell us they delight in enrolling ROBS graduates because our students aren’t just high-performers. They’re good people.
Results that Matter
How do we know our approach works? Because we have the results to prove it. Our students perform at the top levels in national and regional academic competitions. And our graduates are wanted by the best high schools in Houston and by some of the nation’s best boarding schools.
Long before words like grit and citizenship trended in education circles, ROBS championed character and spiritual development as fundamental for academic growth. This is why character and faith lessons are woven throughout curricula.
The PS-8 Advantage
It’s on the mind of nearly every parent who applies to ROBS: Why choose a school that ends in eighth grade? Actually, there are several great reasons — especially if your starting point is this question:
“What is in the best interest of my child?”
ROBS is a community for life–and not just for the students. A nascent relationship with our families starts from day one.
