Great school with great teachers...good quality and leadership. School mission is to inspire student to good education.

Posted August 15, 2010

because my son fell short of the age requirement he was tested and they found his fine motors skills were low.even though he can write all the letters spell his name his vocabulary scored 111 and kids his age should be at 100 so he's over so what this boils down to is because my son is overweight he can't go to school.but if i went by the reasons of the secretary she said because he's a boy and they aren't smart as girls.so they not only judge kids but discriminate of their gender and their weight.so if you are a parent and you are about to get your child tested don't let them treat your child like they did mine.if you feel you were treated poorly call me and maybe we can fight together for our children 8143843434

We have had nothing but wonderful experiences in this building. Although our dealings with the adminstration have been limited, we feel it has a great staff and are very fortunate to have this school in our backyard.

We feel Robison Elementary is the best kept secret in Northwestern PA. The highly qualified, nurturing staff is balanced with a curriculum that is both challenging and well supported. The district provides extensive special needs support including many gifted and enrichment opportunities that far surpass others we have explored. The P.T.O. works together with the staff to provide monthly family involvement programs. The students are under the careful leadership of a principal who knows each child by name and who takes the time to visit each classroom on a regular basis. The children enjoy a wide range of experiences encompassing the liberal arts including a school musical and a Family Involvement Night in which the Art, Music and Physical Education Staff pull their talents together for an entire evening. In weighing the academics, extracurricular opportunities, and quality of the staff, Robison is a heavy weight champ in our opinion!

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
