they have the gratest attitude and some of the best teachers I have ever seen. My daughter is always surprised by the stories her friends at other schools tell about how the kids treat each other. She says we don't have that mean stuff at Robinson.

Mrs. Austin and Mrs. Hazleton work very hard to make this school a place of learning and growing for students. Like any school, some of the students face challenges from outside the school environment. Parents and Guardians need to step up and help improve attendance, discipline, and scholastic issues. Basically, parental involvement needs to improve. The administration and staff are always working to improve the learning environment, but they can not do it alone. If you have a child at Robinson, please get involved. Your children are young and in school once! Don't be shy about your students education...roll up your sleeves and help them succeed! Aren't your kids worth the extra effort? Of course they are!

I think that Robinson Middle School has a wonderful staff, has wonderful music and art programs, and is just a great school overall. The only thing I have seen the children come home with is A's and B's. If a child is getting a bad grade or is giving a bad performance in school, the staff all work on the individual student to make them better. Every parent I know is working very hard to make Robinson Middle School a better environment for the children. The only stories I have ever heard about this school from children that go there are good stories. Children that I know from other middle schools only say that they wish that they had gone to Robinson. The only complaint that I have heard from the children that go there is that they don't get yearbooks and the children at Landon Middle School do.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government.

The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
