Solon Robinson Elementary School3

Solon Robinson is "ok". My son went to school in Chicago and the learning curriculum was much harder and the children there were more like "children". My son is coming home saying things he didn't learn at his other school. His teacher is too non chalant about her grading and homework as well. I give it an average rating.
This school is fantastic. The parent involvement is something I never experienced before. Teachers are great, the librarian is so encouraging and the principal runs a tight ship (which I feel is incredibly important.) We are so happy here and our two children are advancing leaps and bounds. For example, my daughter started 1st grade reading at a 1.4 level and left reading at a 4.8 level. We are looking forward to the new school year.
This is our first year (1st grade) at Solon and I'm thrilled to be part of this wonderful community of teachers and parents. We moved to CP so my children could attent a four star school. Our teacher is knowledgeable, fair, fun and loving. She gives constant encouragement and praise! Coming into Solon my daughter was advanced. Solon enriches her and always keeps her busy so she is never bored. If I could, I would give the school an A++++++++++.
Solon Robinson sets very high standards for their students and they have a very good record. However I believe that they put too much pressure on the students. The curriculum has math jumping around, I can't possible see that is conducive to a child's learning The also believe in clustering the desk, tell me how that is not distracting to the children. They are very good when it comes to music, art and extracurricular activities. Solon encourages parent involvement.
my children are at solon school. The teachers at Solon work with her and with the help of a tutor she was able to fine her place and know she is in the 5th grade with good grades, my son is in kindergarten, when he started this year he wouldn't speak to anyone, know with the help from his teacher he opening up to people and leaning to read, things I didn't think he know, the teacher brought them out of him and he loves learning and telling his family all about his day. My husband and I are happy that we brought them to this school.
