Dr. Edward Roberson Middle School is a Math, Science, and Fine Arts academy that cultivates a learning environment that produces well-educated, well-rounded, culturally sensitive, and socially conscious scholars. Through high academic expectations and real-world application, Roberson takes pride in fostering a learning environment that prepares students to be globally competitive leaders of tomorrow.
We ensure that all students have the equal opportunity to achieve through non-traditional, transformational offerings and specialty programs. Students are prepared for success through core content classes, small group intervention and enrichment blocks, and additional classes aligned to one of four specialty pathways: Performing Arts, STEM Engineering, Law Enforcement, and Environmental Agriculture. These programs cultivate the collaborative ownership, small-communities model needed for promoting critical thinking, creativity, communication, flexibility, leadership, and ethical responsibility.
In order to ensure quality instruction, Roberson staff use a strategic balance of data-driven intellectual preparation, planning, and delivery of instruction; a collaborative ownership belief founded on the principle that everyone is responsible for leadership and learning; and hands-on learning and field experiences. The synchronization of these efforts impels our scholars to work diligently, excelling with every opportunity and choice that we have to offer them. Our school's commitment to student success has allowed us to consistently grow year-over-year in student achievement, thus closing the gap for our scholars.
The alignment of the quality, rigorous instruction; choice programs; academic enrichment and competition; celebrated diversity; and strong culture interconnect and foster well-rounded, globally responsive students prepared for life beyond Roberson Middle School.
