Robinson was awarded The National Blue Ribbon Award which is only given to about 300 out of 100,000 public schools in the country. Incredibly hard working yet happy teachers, strong parental involvement and very creative children make this school a hidden gem!
We moved houses in order for our son to attend this school. As stated in the previous review, this feels like a private school. All of the kindergarten students are very bright and they get a lot of exposure to music, art, and the performing arts, in addition to the basic math, science, writing, reading, and computer lab. At he end of the year, each kindergarten student had to research a sea animal and the give a 2 minute presentation followed by Q and A. I am so impressed by what the amazing teachers accomplish in a half-day kindergarten!
We really love this school. The principle seems very supportive and intrested in making sure your child is doing well. The teachers are very helpful and willing to talk with you.
I feel so fortunate to have my child enrolled in this school. The parental involvement is phenomenal and the principal and staff are very responsive and receptive to comments and feedback. This is a very small school with less than 400 students. Perhaps this is why Robinson feels more like a private school than a public school. When the school district faced a huge deficit and cuts had to be made, the parents worked with the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation to come up with a plan to fund many of the areas considered to be too important to lose. I also appreciate the quality of teachers here. Potential problems seem to be handled appropriately and sensitively before they get out of hand. And I love that the teachers here have a book club that meets every month to discuss child development books. This is a very special place.
