Robert Down Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Robert Down School is exceptional. Two of my children attended Robert Down and received excellent education from dedicated teachers.

I enrolled a 4th grader and a kindergartener at Robert Down last year. We moved from a very rigorous academic school in Virginia, ranked 10 on Great Schools. While the academics at RHD are good (maybe a 4/5), they are not as rigorous as our prior school (5/5). However, school is more than just academics. RHD does an excellent job at instilling independence and a sense of community in the students. I love that the older grades are paired with a "buddy" student in a younger grade (5th paired with 2nd, 4th with 1st, etc.). Another positive aspect is the significant parent volunteer opportunities in the classroom, from reading to small group instruction. The students have two 10-min recess periods AND PE every single day and music once a week. The learning Garden and the STEM opportunities are very good, and this year we have started a 4-5th grade robotics team that will compete in a regional competition. The administration is strong and incredibly caring. When I brought to light my concerns regarding the district publicity policy, the principal took it up with the school board and it was changed for the next school year.I would like to see improvements to the afterschool and enrichment offerings. For example, I signed my son up for after school chess (for an additional fee) assuming he would improve his understanding of the game with a short strategy lesson, but the students simply sit down and play. Likewise, the school could stand to build a stronger gifted and talented program. Overall, I have been incredibly happy with our experience at RHD. My family will move to another state for the next school year and I'm sure that we will miss RHD very much.

I move to pacific grove from France with my son hardly speaking English and could not write or read in English. Within 6 months he was up to grade level thanks to an amazing team.,Amazing teacher that cater to every child individually. They have great resources to make your child's year as successful as possible.

Overall this school lacks innovation and creativity because the leadership is shortsighted and unwilling to take risks. After school math program is not much more than a babysitting program, at the very least. The Resource Program is stuck in the dark ages to the point of being oppressive and children with learning disabilities do not receive equal curriculum opportunities as do students without special needs. Children with learning disabilities are often given assignments within the classroom for drill and kill work in outdated paper/book programs. Teachers teach children to read mainly through repetitive, visual learning modalities which works for some students, but not for many, especially students with dyslexia. I knew of one parent whose child had been in the same resource program using the exact same materials for years with little progress but the school did not try to use alternative programs with this child for success. Sometimes, one size does not fit all. This school will benefit from taking risks including trusting that children with special needs grow from challenging and diverse curriculum that engages rather than bores students to tears.

I know nothing about Robert Down, other than the extreme positives that neighbors of my rental home tell me. Its reputation is so good that i'm informed that I can get considerably more rent for it than in any other area around the peninsula. People forego pricey private schools for it. The teacher student ratio is 12:1. Its rated 9 of 10. Its on an upward spiral. That speaks volumes for the neighborhood and the school itself.
