As of June 2013, St. Robert Bellarmine School was closed. In September 2013, St. Robert's School in Bayside opened as part of Divine Wisdom Catholic Academy which has its first campus at St. Anastasia in Douglaston. Both schools in the Academy had all grades, Nursery to Eighth Grade. This merged Academy was to ensure the long term viability of Catholic Education in both parishes.

As of June of 2018 the SRB Campus of Divine Wisdom will be closed and will no longer be part of Divine Wisdom in Douglaston.The future of the SRB School building is unknown as of January 2018.

HOWEVER ---- there is talk of having an ALL-YEARS reunion get-together in May or June of 2018 for Alumni wander the school and share stories and enjoy a buffet meal. If you are interested, PLEASE send an e-mail to alumni@srbschool.org with your name and year of graduation and contact info. PS we could use any and all help with the event and locating alumni.


St. Robert Bellarmine School first opened its doors and 16 classrooms on Monday, September 13, 1954 to 475 children enrolled in Grades 1-5 under the tutelage of the Sisters of Saint Joseph. The Founding Community of St. Robert's School consisted of Sister Mary Philipa (Principal), Sister Mary Dermod, Sister James Annette, Sister Maria Philip, Sister Saint Timothy, Sister Saint Stephen, Sister George Marilla, Sister Ursula Marie and Sister Saint William.

There was no convent during the first years --- it would not be completed until late in 1959. The Sisters of St. Joseph teaching at the school established their living quarters with kitchen and dining room in 6 classrooms on the second floor of the school. The Sisters’ backyard, patio and setting for occasional cookouts those first years was the school’s large flat roof --- nicknamed “Tar Beach.”

By the 1957-58 school year grades 1-8 were in place and the first 8th grade graduation of 66 students was held on June 22, 1958. (They celebrated the 50th anniversary of their graduation at SRB in 2008)! This past school year our school culminated its 59th year of Catholic education and the Class of 2013 is our 56th (and last) graduating class.

Although SRB School is closed, we will still try to keep the Alumni Association up-to-date and assist Classes in locating fellow classmates for reunions. For now we will use this site to post information for Alumni, including some Parish Events and other events happening @ the SRB School Building.

The Alumni e-mail address (alumni@srbschool.org) will remain active, even if the site is closed. Alumni should then register through this e-mail address with Name (including maiden name), Address, E-mail address and Year of Graduation.
