Robert Christian Elementary School

Robert, pronounced Rō-bear, is located at the very top of a mountain with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Ocean. The students at the Robert Christian Elementary School sit on long wooden benches facing blackboard partitions. The school captures rainwater in a concrete cistern which is used by the school, children, and church community. Once children complete 8th grade, they go to the secondary school at the foot of the mountain, the Williamson Christian Secondary School.
