Run of the mill average school that tries to passify parents and is public school business as usual. If the principal doesn't find concern with something a parent is concerned about then there is not much you can do to better the campus. This attitude adversely impacts parent participation.

My children have great experiences here at Robla. Although, the school's API doesn't show it, the staff at Robla are awesome. Ms. Jana and Ms. Darlene are the best. They are sweet and are very attentive. The teachers are all hard workers and tough.

Robla Elementary is an outstanding school. The Principle, Mr. Penman is awesome and has his finger on the pulse of this school. The Office Staff, Teachers, Cafeteria Staff are awesome. Very good structure for all students, safe and clean environment. I am very pleased my Grandaughter Selena H. attends this school. She is receiving a very good education.

I am a past student of Robla and I am now a teacher myself in rural ND. I have fond memories of my learning experience at Robla and by the ratings of the staff and principal, I have to say that the overall rating of a three has more to do with the efforts of the individual students and their expectations for themselves. Life is what you make it and parents have the duty to provide the security and stability in an environment the child lives in setting standards and expectations for their child(ren).

I am extremely pleased with Robla Elementary. We switched my son from a private school to Robla for second grade as we could no longer afford to continue to send him to the private school. At first we were very concerned, however, we feel that our son is getting a better education, and his second grade teacher has been incredible.

Robla is the best school in the District. My three kids have attended from Kindergarten through sixth grade over the years. My kids are excelling academicly according to the Star tests. When they need extra help, the programs are available during and after school with the reading specialist and homework club or extended day. One of my daughters loves the music program so much She tried out for the Robla Childrens Choir and made it! Parents in our district really need to get more involved to be able to acurately review their school.

I am pretty happy with the school, although I dont have much for comparison, it is clean, safe for my kids.

I feel bad for any parent that is having their child educated at Robla Elementry, the quality of academic programs is very very poor,test scores are some of the lowest in ca. No availability at all of music or fine art prograns. Robla is not the school that will or can produce a quality education, or offer the best to our future leaders!

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.
