Robin Hill is the best school in Norman. We are out of district but it's well worth the drive.I have been taking my children there for 5 years. It's a smaller school so the teachers have more one on one time with the students when they need it. The special services teacher and the principal have done a great job working with my daughter. Me and my husband are very impressed with the staff at Robin Hill. They really do go above and beyond.

My daughters were at this school for a couple of years, KG & 1st grade. Mrs. B in KG and Mrs. B in 1st grade were great with my kids. 1st grade teacher is great in pushing students academically and works well with the age group. KG was very accommodating and approachable. Kids loved both! I was comfortable with both women. Office staff was good and the principle was friendly. The school has smaller class size than the NPS system, which is why I chose to make the drive to RHPS. I didn't care for the PTA, but they seemed involved and did some great things. This is a country school, so if you are a minority be prepared to have some diversity issues with the student population, but that shouldn't reflect the on faculty, staff and principle. We always felt welcome by everyone who worked for the district. Overall, I would recommend it.

My two oldest children attended Robin Hill Pre-k through 1st grade (through 2010). The full-day pre-k and kindergarten were GREAT! y ONLY complaint is the 1st grade teacher who has apparently lost interest in emotionally connectioning with students a long time ago yet she is still there. The 1st grade teacher didn't feel that the behaviors and/or threats of a particular student were worthy of telling us about even though I maintained an open line of communication with her and the principal. As I recall a particular incident when this boy stole items from my son's desk and her response to my son was "Go sit down and shut-up....it's just a rock anyways." I asked her about it and she said "I probably did say that it was a little crazy at the time"...are you kidding me?! The Principal was new at the time and seemed genuinely interested in the students; however, he didn't seem to truly recognize the serious nature of the persisent, daily bullying even though it had led another student to transfer out of the school mid-year. There are now two 1st grade classes and the other teacher is wonderful.

We make a drive and go out of our way to go here. (Transferred out of our assigned school district) It's worth it! Love the small classes - everyone knows everyone and the different ages get to interact with each other. Because it's so small, it can be a little more laid-back - not as stringent with rules. I'm totally fine with that, because the students are kept safe, yet are not weighed down with rigid rules. Each grade is so small, that the students seem to really bond together. Teachers, staff and principal are friendly, caring and positive. Quality of academics is very good! My child is happy here and has blossomed. They can't offer as many extracirricular activities as bigger schools, but we don't miss that. There are several interesting field trips every year. I feel this school is a 'best-kept secret' and would recommend it highly.

I love this school! I did a lot of research when I decided to put my children somewhere for school, and was very impressed with everything I heard about Robin Hill. Everything that I was told was right on, too. The teachers are interested in helping the students, the quality of academics is fantastic, and I love the 'little school' feel about this school. Parent involvement is extremely high, and since the school is small, parents really have a chance to be a part of their children's education. The school isn't in a brand new building, but it's always clean and has a feeling of comfort. Like former reviewers, I drive out of my way and out of my district to send my children there, but it's so worth it!

Robin Hill is a fantastic school. It is only second in highest test scores in the state for K4-8th grade. All of my children go to this school. They offer all day K4 and K5 classes. My children have learned to read by the middle of K5 if not sooner. My 6th grader takes two different math classes so that she can compete on a higher level. My daughter who just started 9th grade in Norman, is very confident because she received a quality education at Robin Hill. She has a 3.5 GPA at Norman North High School and is in Honor Classes. The parent involvement is great and so are the teachers. I recommend everyone to Robin Hill.

My husband and I have been VERY impressed with Robin Hill School. We travel from the Little Axe, Noble area just to send our children. We have been attending for 9 years now. Our 4th child is on his way into the school next year. We love the small classes and one on one attention to the students. Every child and teacher know each other in this school. A great plus to us. The only thing we wish were different is that they have Music or Art program. But there will always be something to sacrifice, regardless of where you take your children. We have recommended Robin Hill to several parents and they have stayed after Kindergarten instead of going to their own districts.

We travel from another district to send our daughter to this school. We have been very impressed with both the staff and administration. I would highly recommend this school to anyone moving close to the district.

I am not very satisfied with this school, it offers a nice laid back atmosphere which we all wish was still around but frankly, that is not todays school. I pulled by children out of this school after 1 1/2 school years due to poor hygene and below average Academic ratings that I found on my own. My children were allowed to run around unaccounted for and doors were not watched properly. I feared for the safety of my little ones. Not to mention the teachers, When do they work? All I noticed was part time participation on their part. A teachers meeting is a waste of time, they do not truly care all they want is their paycheck. What is the world coming to? I had very little good memories at this school but I will be honest. I am glad it is over, I will never forget, 'Robin Hill'.
