Robinson Elementary is the BEST school ever. They have a wonderful staff!! They remember the children's names. They take interest in the children's life. I LOVE every teacher my child has had a Robinson. This is a WONDERFUL school. Wonderful teachers who actually teach the children and push them to succeed!!

After working with the teachers and administration at this school, I can say with out a doubt that they are professionals where children come first, and everyone is for and about children. Working with these folks brings to mind one of my favorite quotes, 'We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but rather a habit.' Aristotle

My daughter has attended Robinson for two years and we couldn't be happier with our decision to move into this district. The administration and teachers are always kind and welcoming. This is definately a wonderful learning environment!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
