Testimonials from the parents of students at the Roberts Academy

Good morning! I had to share this. Yesterday was my birthday and this is the card Paige made me. I asked her why life was so hard and why it’s now easy and her response was “Because reading was hard for me and now it’s not. You and Daddy helped me and helped me switch schools, thank you!” (Of course that brought this momma to tears!) Best gift I have ever received! Thank you for such an amazing school and all you offer these kiddos. Such a blessing!

Tiffany Parry, parent of a 3rd grade student


Roberts Academy has changed my daughter’s life. Not only has her reading skills skyrocketed, but her confidence and love for school has returned as well. The teachers at the Roberts Academy truly love their jobs and it shows. The teachers create such a warm sense of community in their classrooms, while setting high expectations for their students.

Jennifer Campbell, parent of a 6th grade student


The Roberts Academy has been a blessing for my son, Isaac. He started at Roberts in 3rd grade. He went from reading at a 1st grade level to reading novels. He struggled with comprehension, but now he has a full understanding of what he reads. If your child struggles with reading this is the best school to attend to see improvement. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. My son loves this school.

Natasha Atkinson, parent of 8th grade student


I can’t say enough great things about the Roberts Academy! Our son started Roberts Academy in the fourth grade. The teachers and the rest of the staff are incredible and highly trained. The atmosphere is refreshing and our son’s needs were addressed and met. I have seen great changes in his reading level, independence, and confidence. Our family feels extremely blessed to have found such a wonderful school that is a perfect fit for our son.

Teresa Osborn, parent of a 5th grade student


The best decision I ever made was to enroll Bo at Roberts Academy. The last four years have flown by and during that time Bo has succeeded in learning and thriving as a student. He has also remained confident in his learning abilities and social skills. This is something I wasn’t sure would be possible before we moved to Lakeland for him to attend Roberts Academy.

Jennifer Miller, parent of an 8th grade student


The Roberts Academy has unlocked our child’s potential; the potential we knew was there, but couldn’t seem to uncover despite years of trying. In just the first three months, our child has transformed into a happier, more confident student with tremendous gains in reading, writing and problem-solving skills. We are so thankful for our Roberts Academy family for blazing a trail in the field of education, and applaud the faculty and staff for not only changing the lives of our students, but influencing the future of education by training teachers on this approach beginning at the college level.

Melissa Anderson, parent of a 2nd grade student


It’s an amazing thing to see your child transform right before your eyes! My son loves school and wants to be successful. He is now self-motivated, works on school work independently, and loves to read. I am so incredibly proud of my son and the amount of progress he has made at Roberts Academy.

Emily Stegal, parent of a 5th grade student


My son Jacob started at the Roberts Academy in 2nd grade. He could not read at all. He couldn’t understand what he tried to read. But now he is reading full sentences. He hated to try and read. Now, he comes home wanting to read and make up his own stories. Roberts has made a huge difference with his confidence in reading and applying himself in the subject. This school is a true blessing.

Natasha Atkinson, parent of 3rd grade student


The best way we can describe The Roberts Academy to a parent that is not sure what to do, is that The Roberts Academy is magical. Success is Guaranteed!

Mr. and Mrs. Larry E. Coggins, Jr., parents of a 5th grade student


The improvement we have seen in only a handful of months since Carter started at The Roberts Academy has been amazing. He has gone from barely reading sight word books to wanting to read all of the time. He believes that he is capable for the first time in years.

Heidi Dembowski, parent of a 3rd grade student


Our son has been at Robert’s for a year and a half. His confidence has soared and he takes pleasure in learning.

Nikki and Tim Anderson, parent of a 3rd grade student

Leticia Mascorro, parent of a 5th grade student


Roberts Academy has been a true blessing for our son. He has regained his confidence! The teachers and staff are phenomenal. They really teach the whole child.

Jennifer O’Steen, parent of a 3rd grade student


Roberts Academy has been a blessing to my son. He went from not reading full sentences to loving and wanting to read books. This school has helped him understand reading on a whole new level.

Natasha Atkinson, parent of a 4th grade student


The boost in confidence that my son has gotten has been life changing. Not only has his reading improved but he is excelling and loving all subjects now. I know that The Roberts Academy is giving him the tools to succeed in anything he wants to do in the future.

Erin Cowin, parent of a 2nd grade student


The Roberts Academy is a fantastic nurturing environment on the cutting edge of dyslexia education.

Robert F., parent of a 2nd grade student


The Roberts Academy is an amazing school. My daughter has only been at the school for a short time and is already reading. When she began the program, she did not know her alphabet. We are so happy to be at the school. Her teacher is the best teacher we have ever had and we feel so blessed.

McNiel Family, parent of a 2nd grade student


I wanted to thank you for giving our little man a chance to go to your school! You have changed his life in so many ways. In 3rd grade, he would tell us all he wanted to do is be like his friends and read. You have given him that by giving him an awesome teacher and that opportunity. I can’t thank you enough.

Siria Windley, parent of 4th grade student
