As grandparents of a K-8 graduate and a beginning middle schooler (6th gr.) we feel, for our experience there, at assemblies, graduation and family education there, that it is one of the best run schools in the district; and more impressive because it is K-8! Janet Kimatian is a principal that knows how to run a school, keep order and teach ALL the children there to be RESPECTFUL. Kudos to her and keep her there as long as she wants to be there. I worked at a city school and I see the difference in a bright/shining school that is Roberts K-8!
