Robinson is a hidden gem! The only public school in West Little Rock is a fabulous school! We moved our son out of one of the local private schools in 10th grade. He said he wished we had moved him to Robinson MUCH sooner! The district is getting us new student desks throughout the school, as well as new teacher desks! The gym was recently renovated, the baseball and softball fields are being completed as well. We have new curtains in the auditorium and the facade will be updated over spring break! It's a great time to be a Senator!!

I just recently graduated from Robinson. It was probably some of the best memories in my life. A lot of that was because of the opportunities I was given there. It's only bad if you don't take advantage of those opportunities. There are great teachers and students that treat each other like family and with respect. In my four years, I've never had a problem with anybody at Joe T. Thanks to one of the only shop classes left in the state, I learned many different life skills and other job related skills. Because of this school, I am the person I am today. The people that give Joe T. a bad name, don't know what they are talking about. Definitely a great school.

RHS is a good school. It's similar to many urban schools...lack of funding sometimes, but that's everywhere these days with President Obama & the Common Core gang. You naje do with what you have & RHS has done just that with thriving local business/school partnerships. Mrs. Bailey is a fair & understanding principal, and Mr. Lowe is a great man Friday to her leadership. The students have improved scholastically & behaviorally in the last five years, and there is less riffraff than at "other" LRSD & PCSSD high schools. Robinson has a rural feel to it and that's a good thing for all students.

Horrible school! If you live within the boundaries for this school & you can, send your child elsewhere or home school. I was warned by people when I moved here but sent my child anyway. Learned my lesson the hard way. Many details I could give for my reasoning here, but I will just say the principal is in denial about the problems.

No problems! Mrs. Bailey (principal) is doing an excellent job! My daughter's ACT was fabulous, she is working hard and having a great time! The district did a lot of work on the school over the summer. Why anyone would send their kid to private school is beyond me and totally unnecessary.

All of my teachers (except for one and she has been sick) are exceptional! They are caring, hard working and good people. I have worked hard and learned a lot!

My son does very well academically at RHS. I'm glad that he in enrolled in the AP courses. They are rigorous.

School has made improvements, but not enough. I will say that the principle has made improvement, but needs to be more accepting of the students. She does not put herself in other people's shoes and try to understand their side of the story. School is run down though. Needs updates in technology that allow we students to further our learning. Many teachers are also coaches, which causes them to take many days off that take from the students learning. Some teachers and staff are rude, and when put into question about it, no action is taken.

If Ms. Marha Cothren is an example of your teachers, I wish that my grandchildren were attending your school. Ms. Cothren, thank you for your attitude toward veterans and those currently serving in the military. I'm a veteran of Vietnam, and admire those who recognize military service for what it is. I served with folks from your area, and I hope they're still around to hear what you're doing. Thank you. Sincerely, Loren Gee, Olympia, Washington.

School is the experimentation schoo, the administration is very lax, unorganized, and rude, low teacher expectation and over crowded, the condition of the building is very bad, and teachers sometimes aren't qualified. My first kid they lost her school records completely after Graduation, according to their records she never even went there, all of my kids had to fight the last month of school to prove they qualified for a diploma.

I have found that many of the teachers are willing to give struggling students extra assistance if I am concerned enough to stay in contact with them. These teachers will go way beyond required duties. But as a parent it is my responsibility to be involved in my child's education. It is my child's responsibility to take advantage of the extra help.

Teacher involvement for some teachers is minimal. It seems that they look upon their job as if they were factory workers, 8 to 4, doing just enough to get by.

The school is in need of repair very badly, the teachers are unobservant most of the time to what actually happens in the classes, and the administration does its job.
