Welcome to Elsie Robertson School, with our roots in the past and our vision in the future.



The mission of Robertson School is to create a positive cohesive community where students can excel academically and socially to reach their full potential as lifelong learners.


The Nausauket School is a one-story flat roofed brick building folded into the fabric of the surrounding residential neighborhood.  It was designed by local architect S. Wesley MacConnell and built in 1947.  It was the first modern era school in the city and became a prototype for schools across the country.  It's signature element is a central portico of rusticated piers, flanked by medallions depicting the eastern and western hemispheres of the globe.  These are important historically as representing an educational system of a nation with worldwide horizon; drastically different from that of a few years earlier.  The name of the school was changed to the Elsie Gibson Robertson School on June 10, 1974 in memory of Mrs. Robertson, who was principal of the school for many years.

School Hours: 8:05 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
