Message From The Principal



Robyn Roberts-Grant


Dear RACMS Families,


It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed Middle School Principal at Rochester Academy Charter Middle School (RACMS).  I am truly honored to have this opportunity to continue leading such an amazing school and school community.  


On a personal note, I am the very proud mother of four children, Nazier, Sydney, Giavana and Mari.  You will often hear me say that being a parent is by far the most challenging, yet rewarding, title I hold.  My decisions will always be driven by what is best for your child.  I am truly honored to be entrusted with your child(ren) and take that responsibility very seriously.  I fully understand the challenges and rewards you face every day as you work to ensure your child has the best educational experience.


Professionally, I have over 23 years of experience as an educator ranging from the elementary, middle and high school levels.  My experiences have helped me see the social, academic and behavioral transitions from kindergarten to the senior year of high school. I have spent 18 years in the Rochester City School District in positions such as: teacher, positive behavioral support specialist, assistant principal and athletic director.  I was also the Director of PE, Health and Athletics & Assistant Principal at the North Rose Wolcott Central School District for 4 years.  I earned 2 Bachelor of Science Degrees in Psychology and Physical Education, a Master of Arts Degree in Education and a Professional Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Administration, all from SUNY Brockport.  I will also complete the Advanced Education Leadership Certification Program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in the fall of 2022.


I wholeheartedly believe that great schools are the result of great teachers and my primary goal is to continue to support the teachers of Rochester Academy Charter Middle School to provide them with the tools they need to continue to be successful and help your children grow and prosper.  Along with the teachers and staff, I will work relentlessly to continue the legacy of success at RACMS by building solid relationships with scholars, parents, staff and community partners.  My goal is to ensure that every scholar has equal opportunities and access to experiential learning opportunities, strives for academic excellence and is ready for high school.


I am thrilled about this upcoming 2022-2023 school year and I am very passionate about how students learn best and look forward to this new opportunity to grow together.  With that in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to rich educational experiences that are both engaging and challenging.  I look forward to working together with you to ensure we have a successful year at Rochester Academy Charter Middle School.  Please know the door is always open and we invite you all to come in to meet the team and be a part of our school.  I can be reached by way of email at [email protected] or by phone at (585) 235-4141.


With Racer HONOR,


Robyn Roberts-Grant
