National PTA has recognized Robinson Barracks Elementary School and RBES PTSA as a 2018-2020 School of Excellence for their commitment to building an inclusive and welcoming school community where all families contribute to enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.
“Research shows that when families and schools work together, students do better in school and schools improve,” said Jim Accomando, president of National PTA. RBES and RBES PTSA have worked hard to strengthen their family-school partnership and create an environment where all families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success. We are pleased to recognize them as a National PTA School of Excellence.”

“It is of the greatest priority of our RBES PTSA to ensure that we work together with our parents, our school administration, teachers and community to provide the best possible educational experience for our children. Family engagement is a shared responsibility that we take very seriously, and we are honored to be recognized as a National PTA School of excellence,” said Sabrina Wilson, president, RBES PTSA.
