2017 robert profile Robert, pronounced Rō-bear, is located at the very top of a mountain with a beautiful view of the Caribbean ocean. Accessible only by 4-wheel drive vehicles, the community has no electricity and no running water. The students at the Robert Christian Elementary School sit on long wooden benches facing blackboard partitions. The school captures rain water in a concrete cistern which is used by the school, children, and church community. Once children complete elementary school, they go to the secondary school at the foot of the mountain, the Williamson Secondary School.
