Map of Robert Randall Elementary School address.

February 07, 2015
I grew up in this area and have recently moved back with my children, one of which attends Robert Randall. Things have improved significantly from when I was last looking at public schools in the area. The school has seen an influx of new families that take an interest in the school and that has translated to better teacher performance as well. My child's teacher takes an interest in his performance. I expect the API scores to go up in the coming years, my child has done quite well here.

My kids went to this school and it is the greatest. Parents are treated like part of the 'family'. I miss seeing the staff and students.

Hands down, Randall has the most devoted and loving teachers. They don't treat it as just a job. It's their life and the kids know it.

Robert Randall has one of the best staff's of Teachers, administrators and parents working together to teach the kids. Working to overcome low income, English Language issues. I like Robert Randall because they have what it takes to motivate the students to want to learn, to show the parents how they can help and work together for the common good of the students. Its a cool School!

I love Randall because they really emphasize learning and new ways to do so. This school keeps the parents and guardians involved every step of the way. Also, I attended Randall, and I think it's awesome that my son goes there now.... way cool!!!

The only way to save this school is a reorganization of school boundaries. The school district needs to distribute all these students to other better performing schools. Also, new students from other better performing school areas need to fill this school. That is the only workable solution to help and encourage these under achieved students to perform better by hanging around and being helped by other super students. This plan should be implemented immediately. Kids grow fast, waiting any longer will only waste their future and contribution to our communities.

Randall teachers work very hard to provide a safe enviorment for the students. They do face many obstacles but they do their best to help the children.

The 2004-2005 school year brought another principal to Randall School. She has done an remarkable job of motivating both students and staff and is continuing to do so. Their are positive changes happening at this school, which, with the dedication of the all involved, will help raise the API scores.

Randall School provides a good educational program. I have had great success with the school. My child enjoys coming to the school and loves his teacher and the principal. All are very caring and want the best for my child. There are many opportunities for parents to get involved and I am an involved parent. If you are involved then you will understand how the school operates. The principal has done an exceptional job of trying to get parents involved through principal teas, parent meetings, parent training, opening a community room and the Latino Family Nights. Randall is a great place to have my child and I would recommend keeping your child in the school and getting involved.

I am responding to the parent whose son is in 4th grade. You asked, 'What should I do?' Well, I don't think transferring him to another school will solve the problems that you are having. I think that you should try to talk with the teacher and express your concerns so that he/she knows that you are having these issues. As for your child, why did you have him tested for ADHD in the first place? From my experience, children can act very differently at home (where they are not surrounded by 20 or more students) and in a classroom setting where there are lots of stimulants. So perhaps your son's teacher was just expressing that your son was easily distracted or can't sit still. But I don't believe that any teacher would just express those types of concerns without any justification. From my understanding, I have heard many good things about Randall, especially the teachers, who perform at the highest abilities.

This school seems to be slowly going down hill. I have had my children here for several years and have been lucky to have excellent caring teacher. Since the new principal things are getting worse. It does not seem like the children are treated the same.

I am really considering transferring my children to another school. My children have really been struggling. I already had my children tested for A.D.D. and ADHD and from what the doctors tell me, they are fine. I recently went on a field trip with a 4th grade class, and it was a horrible experience. My 4th grader didn't have these problems in kinder or 1st grade, but then again he didn't attend Randall. Looking at other parents comments I am not the only parent considering pulling my children out. What should I do?

This school used to be a great school to send my kids to. A couple of years ago the district placed an new principal and took out the last one, even though she was able to get results. As a result of the change, the teachers are unhappy and there is a huge turnover rate at the school. Many parents like myself feel that the current principal should be removed and the old one put back. I am considering transferring my child to another school unless things get better there. If your child ends up at that school, your best move would be to pull out.

This is a Title 1 school with uniform requirements. Many children come from disadvantaged homes. Many parents speak English as a second language. There has been a high number of teacher turn over after the new principal was transferred to the school a couple of years ago. It appears that the teachers are unhappy with the school, which probably results in lower teacher performance. Although the new principal has made some good changes, I do not see an improvement in my child's education. It is unfortunate with the large mass of homes in the neighborhood that Milpitas School District does not change the boundaries such that there would be a mix of children from different income levels at all of their schools.
