Our son just graduated from 1st grade and after 2 years at Robin Hood, we have found the teachers to be very loving, caring and willing to go the extra mile to help our son learn and integrate with other children there. The new head of school, Mrs. Donahue is a perfect choice. She is smart, dedicated and professional. Each year, our son started off with a few minor challenges, and each year the teachers brainstormed solutions and sincerely cared about our son's relationship to learning.
Both my sons attend Robin Hood Elementary school this year and I could not be happier with the school. The teachers clearly care deeply about the well-being and success of each student. The Robin Hood community that thrives throughout this school is top notch. Many parents take their time to be involved, volunteer, and help in any way they can.
I feel like the previous reviews reflect the schools past with it's former principal. Robin Hood gained a wonderful new principal this year, Maura Donoghue.
Beware of the principal at the Robin Hood School, especially if you have children with special needs. I wished I had known this beforehand as it would have saved years worth of heartache for my children and my family. There are some wonderful teachers here who are very dedicated to their students. It's a shame that they cannot teach to their full potential under such leadership.
All kinds of minds are not welcome here at all. If your child has ADHD or anxiety, this is not the place for them. This school has many great staff but the principal's lack of drive to move into 21stcentury teaching and learning strategies allows the staff to remain where they are. Beautiful building, not for children with disabilities.
