I really like this school, they have great teachers. There are some, just a few, that really shouldnt be there. The main problem I have is it is a mandatory uniform school and you make your child wear uniforms but all the students dont wear them, Yes they have incentives but the only time they gave the incentive was the 1st nine weeks. Incentive program should done appropriately. New principal didnt get a change to know her. Excellent band program. Teachers need to work better together for the students.

I have to say the 1st meeting in the school the people who work in the front desk area are helpful, great reposnce from Ms. King, than all down hill from there.I AM NOT PLEASE WITH ROBINSWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL. My child was in West Oaks were I learn alot about my son and what real educators demand for their students, staff accountabilty, and team work. I am fighting to find out what is going on in my childs ESE class IEP not followed. Teacher called me today and said if he does not bring his planner home how is that her problem. Yes the school is clean it is new but, it is past the buck school that even the 6th grade admin. LET Me KNOW WHAT IS AND IS NOT HIS JOB at robinswood. If your ESE child is not on track he will fall even more behind. Great music

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
