Both my kids attended this school from K-5. Our children encountered nothing but caring teaches and staff there during our 8 years there. I can t say enough about the teachers and the work they do with each child. While we all know a class is made up of many kids, the teachers strived to deliver a challenging and fun education to each one. The best advice I can offer is for you to develop a relationship with your child s teachers and make their education a partnership. Be engaged, be aware, be accountable but mostly be a partner. Both my children are now college graduates and have great memories of Robinson School.
My daughter is a graduate of the Robinson family. I say family because it is more than a school. The faculty cares & so do most of the parents, you really don't see this kind of involvement these days. Her 6 years at Robinson were the stepping stones for her to gain entry into a local prep school & on to soon graduate college as a teacher! Something she has dreamed of doing since she was 6 all because of the wonderful teacher she had for 1st grade at Robinson! Great school, great learning experience, super great school community!!!! We miss the days at Robinson.
I have had three children through this school. All my children are very different and they all faired very well. I cannot say enough nice things about the principal, Mr. Mattia. He is one of my favorite people in the world. He recognizes that education is very important but that is not his only consideration. He believes in the necessity of social interaction and self esteem. As always, there are teachers that are better than others but systemically they are a great school!.
This is the worst school I have ever encountered. The staff chooses to yell and degrade the children to maintain discipline. The principal is a 'yes' man and will tell you what you want to hear but does not care about the well being of the children. I was a teacher for 7 years before I became a mom and never have I seen such a poor excuse for a school. The majority of children in my neighborhood choose to send their children to a private school or have moved to a better school district. How sad is that. My child never did creative writing. At the end of the year my child's journal came home with only six entires for the entire year! Most of which were copied from the board. This comes from a school district that has their mission statement as 'Quality Education for Everyone' What a joke!!
I had my older son in that school. And now I have my daughter who's been there.I think the school is great. The Principal & the staff are excellent. The room mom involvement is great too. I had no problems with that school at all.
This school has been a great help to our daughter. She was challenged in several ways, her motor skills, her retention and her speach. The school made every effort to address these issues by helping her in a friendly one on one,( in most cases )situation where she could understand and they could work with her to overcome these problems.All her teachers are very nice. There are a lot of extra activities for the kids. Parents are welcome to get involved and they do.
This is a great school. With the way the world is today, this school gives you the feeling of the way things were when we were in school. They care, they love, they are firm when the need arises, and the children receive a top notch education! From the principal down to the support staff, everyone does a great job!
I've had two kids in Robinson. I can't say enough about the teaching staff. Great school.
I think the leadership and staff at Robinson is top notch. I have never seen more dedicated people in on work place then at Robinson. They do more than any parent can expect on their own and for the students. They work for the kids everyday.
