My daughter just started kindergarten. I'm not sure hoe I feel yet. But I am a little impartial, I am Robinson alumni.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers and principal care about the students and their safety. My son for once loves going to school.

This school is excellent. Teachers are more involved and want to help their students. My daughter loves going there. My daughter's teacher for last year was soo helpful, she offered to tutor her when we saw that she was struggling in reading. This year, I was impressed with the team of teachers that she has and they seemed so well prepared. I am looking forward to another great year.

This school has strong quality teachers who have a caring attitude toward the children, school, and the academics. The Kindergarten teachers are outstanding and utilize academic teaching methods which are highly effective in building strong math, language and reading skills. I saw major progress with my 5 year old son and was very pleased with his progression of language, reading and math skills. The school is in an old building which could use some remodeling and a playscape for the children would be a great addition to their playground. The strength of this school is its academic foundation, the caring attitude of its teachers and staff and its strong involvement with the parents and community.

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.
