I have temporarily taught at JSR for about 9 months and I can say that this school isn't really just a school for me and many others; its a family. The teachers and staff really are genuine and care about the children and their learning that takes place. They have a vast amount of tutors and even volunteers who reach out to the educational needs and goals of their students. Also, their PBS program is exceptional. The children are very well behaved and the structure within the school is superb! The children love hearing praise and being rewarded with JSR bucks. I have jumped at the chance to be apart of this school and will continue to try to be apart of the JSR team!!! I have learned so much from them! This school has really added to my teaching experience and has enhanced my teaching career in the near future :) Keep up the great work J.S. Robinson!!!

My son goes to Robinson he is in Kindergarten and has some learning difficulties. The teacher for his class has really worked hard with him this year really pushing him as far as he can go. He has learned so much this year. I would have to say the dedication of the staff for the success of their students is real.

robinson elem. does a great job when it comes to the safety of my son. They do not allow the children to roam free while waiting on parents to get there. The teachers and everyone in the school, makes sure that if any questions or problems come up, that you are notified immmediately and that they are answered and/or solved. I am very happy that my son is going here.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


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.
