My son is in seventh grade at this school. I have another son who already completed middle school there. While neither was as intellectually challenged as I would have liked, they, overall, had good teachers and a few outstanding ones who engaged them in significant ways. No doubt that middle school years are tough so sometimes support, good humor, or patience is as important from a teacher as intellectual rigor is. The school is also diverse in many ways and I appreciate the way that the school manages seamlessly, or apparently so, all of that diversity. Life lessons at Robinson have been priceless. Both boys are also musicians and athletes, and as athletes they have had great mentors/coaches. My oldest son is now in a complete honors curriculum at Topeka High. He did not think he was any less prepared for that than his classmates who went to private schools. I do not question the decision to send both sons to Robinson for a moment.
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!
