Inappropriate language and speech from staff (front desk). The principal is unwilling to meet with parents. I have tried to meet with her for over to weeks now. I left her notes, waited in the office two times both over an hour, and phone calls. I have never heard back from her still. I am taking my child out of that school ASAP. You can tell why it is a failing school.
Andrew Robinson Elementary school with good teachers. There are many activities for the students to be apart of. Parents are given the opportunity to participate in academic nights and various activities to see what the students are learning. I also like that the school is clean.
I am a parent who is also very involved in her children's education, I have always been known as 'The Pop Up Parent'. But that came to a halt when my son arrived at Andrew Robinson, this schooll was not are first choice and he will NOT be back next year. He came to them as a student who loved everything about school and has made nothing but A's since the first day he stepped into school, to a student who wants's to be home schooled because of the distractions he has from BULLIES. His teacher spends more of the learning day on trying to handle the class rather than teaching. We cannot wait for this year to be over! For any body moving to this area, just because it is a magnet school does not mean ANYTHING!!!
Over all this is a good school that allows the children's minds to grow. The only downfall is that the school tries to keep parents out of the school as much as possible. The feel that we parents should give our children to them for 8 hours and day and let me do their jobs without our input on how it is being done to a point. The parents who insist on being a part of their children's education do make it through the door, while the ones that just say okay don't. I am a parent that makes it through the door. I want to know what my children are doing and how they are doing it.
