My son had to leave Notre Dame de Sion after they refused to accomodate his ADHD in the slightest, stating they weren't mandated to help. My son's first grade teacher has been an amazing support to him - we moved to Raytown for the schools and we have NOT been disappointed! We get daily email updates because I requested them. Everyone knows us by name and they are always warm and welcoming. We may have to move again for middle or high school, but the elementary school experience here in Raytown has been much better than I ever imagined. If you are trapped in the KC MO nightmare, I guarantee you that this district is worth the move. Also, great neighbors, quiet streets, clean parks, and no gunshots! :)
This is our third and final year in this school after transferring from a very highly rated school/district in another state and we could not be more pleased. Our student has had wonderful teachers every year, and has grown so much. The Challenge program in the district is absolutely amazing. This is our second year in the orchestra program which has been a great experience as well, even with a huge number of kids in the program for the first year. Many area districts do not start orchestra as early (4th Gr). We were happy with the before and after school care program when we were using it. The cafeteria staff is top notch - everyone in the school knows our student and truly seem to care. Even our bus driver is one of the best I've ever known of.
We love Robinson! My daughter loves to go to school everyday. The teachers are great, they truly care about the success of the kids. I feel like her teachers have gone above and beyond to be sure my child has a solid foundation for a great educational future. I would highly recommend this school.
The teachers are great people and do an excellent job. Its how everything else is handled. When there is no issue to warrant such things as chaperoning parents to any destination in the school, even when said parents have passed background checks. Or you are not able to sit in on your child's classroom without an appointment. I have also been part of the PTA for many years. My other children attend the middle school and high school and I am welcomed any time with out chaperones and without appointments.
Love this school. Perfect for my kids, and the teachers are wonderful.
love the teachers and all the extra activities available for the kids. There is a great sence of community and parent envolvment. I know my son is getting quality education here.
Class size is out of control there are 25-28 students in most classes. The Physical Education program is very poor. Parent involvement is hard, PTA is a click.
Robinson is an excellent school with good music, art and PE programs. State of the art computer lab. Brand new subdivision being built within walking distance.
The class size is untrue, my son entered this school expecting a class size of no more than 18 students. His class currently has 25+ students. We were lead to believe that class size was of the utmost importance. My son came from a private school with 10 children in his class. He has had to make drastic changes in order to fit in. He has had to slow is pace in learning because he was so far ahead of the class. This is so unfair, we instill that values of higher learning in him. We don't know how this will effect his learning behavior, but will soon be able to tell if this is an effecient, effective learning enviornment.
My girls only went to Robinson for one year and then we moved out of state. My kids really enjoyed it there. I as a Parent found it to be an exceptional School.
