About Us

Robert L. Puster Elementary School is more than just a place of learning; it's a community where every child is valued and encouraged to reach their fullest potential. Our school serves students from kindergarten through fourth grade, creating a close-knit, supportive environment where children thrive. 

Robert L. Puster proudly opened its doors to the Lovejoy ISD community in 2008.  The school’s namesake comes from former Lovejoy principal and superintendent, Robert L. Puster. Mr. Puster still stops by to say ‘hi” to our staff and students each year!

We believe in every student achieving personal excellence. We believe in creating a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment where students are inspired to learn, grow, and become their best selves. Our vision is to foster a growth mindset in all our students, encouraging them to keep learning and improving daily.
