The mission of Robertson Charter School shall be to provide for the world-class education of Decatur school children, and as an intervention for those at-risk, preparing the children through the utilization of a rigorous curriculum. The highly individualized program will prepare all of its students for placement deemed most appropriate for each student’s strengths, weaknesses, and interests.
Robertson Charter School began as a dream. The idea was to provide an alternative educational opportunity for students and their families living in Decatur, Illinois. After nearly eighteen months of preparation, the school was opened in July, 2001 with 67 students. Initially, Robertson accommodated Kindergarten through 3rd Grade. After a difficult first few months, the school quickly began to be established as a new premier school of choice. The initial goal was to add one grade per year until 8th Grade. This goal was accomplished in the 2006/2007 school year.
Robertson Charter School is a "public school of choice." We are connected with Decatur Public School District 61.
We have smaller class sizes (typically about 25 students) which allows us to spend more time with each student. We teach Spanish to all our students as a second language. We have state-of-the-art computer technology to assist our students in mastering the fundamentals in reading and math. We have approximately 300 students and 46 staff.
RCS has its own fleet of school buses. All bus drivers work exclusively for Robertson Charter School. Our fleet is maintained by our own transportation manager.
Alternative Schools have given many people the right to choose the best place for their child's education. Robertson Charter School has become that 'school of choice' in Decatur. We are extremely proud of all our teachers, teaching assistants, and other staff members. We are especially proud of our administrative staff. Additionally, our Board of Directors has proven to be an irreplaceable asset. Discover the difference being a part of Robertson Charter School can be.
