This is my daughter's first school and she loves it. My daughter's Kindergarten teacher is teaching them things that 1st & 2nd graders are barley starting to learn now. My daughter will be well ahead of the game when she reaches the upper grade levels. Great school all around.

New principal is doing the bare minimum. I do not see parent involvement encouraged as I have in other schools. The lunches are bad and lack in colors, veggies, and fruits. Clean school, and great mediocrity... It is what you expect from the neighborhood...regarding school location... North plus east means an increase in quality, while south plus west means less OBVIOUSLY. This system does not work for our children as we Fresno, are listed as one of the "dumbest" cities. We have Fresno State..and what other options? Overcrowded CC.... Look into private or home school. Same old system tracking "good" kids to success and the "bad ones" to detention. MyGrade: F the principal F for the school.

My daughter is in kindegarten and has a great teacher. We have a new principle and he has great things in store for Robinson. The kindegarten playground is finished and looks like a lot of fun. Rock on Robinson

I was satisfied with my daughter's kindergarten teacher. However because of Fresno Unified lacking the appropriate funds the playground for the kindergartener's seems somewhat unstimulating.

I decided after my daughter's 5th grade year at another elem. school that she needed to be at a school where the staff actually cares about their student's performance. So far 6th grade at Robinson has been great for the both of us. The principal is a very nice person, and her teacher Mrs. Boyd is great. I look forward to my younger daughter attending Robinson.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
