I have had three children attend Robinson Elementary, all with different learning needs and styles. I am amazed at how each one of them has thrived in this wonderfully diverse school environment. Any time we have had a concern, we have experienced caring interactions with teachers and staff who were willing to work with us to make any adjustments needed. My youngest child has special needs, and I cannot say enough how grateful I am for the individualized approach to developing a quality IEP to help her learn and grow academically, while still creating quality interactions with her peers. Not to mention the amount of personal care and love my children have each received from teachers and staff at this school.
This school is wonderful! The teachers are warmhearted, and want you child to learn in a fun loving environment. The PTA here is the best, I have ever been experienced. This school celabrates your childrens achievements like they are family
Sending your babies to school can be hard and while there are policies and the like that has taken some getting used to by our family, I am thrilled to send my kids to a school in which they have been embraced, loved, and challenged by incredible teachers. I am impressed by the efforts of the school to individualize learning for kids who are performing at, below, and above grade level. I value the richness of understanding that my children are developing through being involved in a diverse environment, racially, culturally, socio-economically, in terms of ability, and more. I treasure the way my children and their classmates treat one another and come together as a community celebrating each other's successes and strengths.
We absolutely love Robinson Elementary. Believe we have a strong team of staff & PTA that encourage & support our students. If I could give one positive critique it would be strengthening communication always a plus!
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.
