this school is a huge disappointment!!! academically and otherwise! we transferred here from a school within the district rated a 2 on this site, since then, grades have fallen dramatically!! the teachers do not give homework, and put forth minimum effort in getting the children to learn. there is also ZERO communication with parents! the only way i knew their grades had dropped was at the interim report conference and it was too late.

I love this little school. I sent my own children there, and now my grandchildren are going there.

Robinson is a great school with a 'family-like' environment. The teachers are friendly and enthusiastic about teaching children. My child has attended this school since Kindergarten and he is returning as a fourth grader this year (08-09).

I have 2 children at Robinson. They both love it there. The teachers are very involved in their education. Also we now have a music teacher and an art teacher on staff. Next year we will have a PE teacher. I am quite pleased with the education my kids are getting at Robinson.
