My school is very good! I love it a lot. It does have some problems, but it's still a well developing school. This school is a very good size. From 5th to 8th grade. My name is Matthew Kroch and I love the Robinson School.

this school is the worst schol ever!!! It is complete chaos!! they stick the special ed children in a basemend janitor closet with no windows and the time out rom is concrete walls and flors nothing else. The schol does not take responsibility for their short commings and just points the finger where ever possible. They have no tolerance for special education choldren and their staff is the worst I have ever sen and I have been involved with many many schols!!!

The Robinson is a alright school. I graduated from it last year. The teachers can get a lil pushy and same with the principle but other then that i had fun there. The are really stuck on making you learn so i think that is good. If you attend this school or send your child there they will have fun and learn a lot at the same time.

I will be honest with you when my child was entering the Robinson School two years ago, I was nervous - they have received extremely negative PR in the community, but after attending a meeting with other parents with the principal, I was certain that this was the school I wanted my child in. It has been two years and I can't say one bad word regarding the school - I love the principal, both last years and this (last year's retired) and I have met all of her teacher's who seem extremely involved in her learning process. She is also involved in the school's music program and the teacher is just wonderful. She has learned alot musically and it has opened doors for her in other areas of confidence. I just wish there were more funds for the school for more activities for the children.

The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
