Mission & Philosophy
The Roberts Field School unifies exemplary academic curriculum, creativity, and environmental field science through an interdisciplinary approach to elementary education, promoting a more peaceful, just, and innovative world. In addition to our 6-story school building, with Prospect Park as central to our community environment, Roberts Field also resources this natural landscape as a recurrent opportunity for indelible and transcendent exploration and ecological awareness and research.
The Roberts Field School offers children a progressive and holistic approach to an academically rich and invigorating program, coupled with a schooling experience steeped in the arts and creativity, science research and nature, music, mindfulness practices, and global culture and events. Key to the programming structure is one morning a week spent in the outdoor field of nature, The Day In The Field. We at Roberts Field believe that the intellect, creative capacity, and individual proclivities of each child thrive most with a direct and consistent connection with nature -- and at Roberts Field we ensure this as a part of our faculty's student's, and school community's regular experience . Embodying the mission of Roberts Field, teachers guide and inspire learners in a continuous love for academic fulfillment and creative expression, with Prospect Park, the neighborhood, and our diverse city as an extended field of acquired knowledge about our world and how it works.
By elevating our expectation of children, we enrich and extend their perception of what they believe is possible to contribute to their communities and the world, as well as to achieve in life. By interweaving invigorating academic standards with creative mediums and the expanse of life, we uplift and enhance education and teach children to reach far within themselves to go joyfully, competently, and brilliantly into the world.

Nurturing a joy in exploring and solving the puzzles, labyrinths, and problems of math allows us to grow into strong and confident mathematicians who out of curiosity and knowlegde approach life creatively and mathematically.
That's why we have Math Club at Roberts Field!
