Robbinsdale school is in an area where the underpriveleged youth attend. It's rooms are small yet the classes are overcrowded.

I think that the Robbinsdale Parent is right when she says that the school is not up to par on curriculum, education and parental involvement. What I have seen in the school district myself is a greater interest in policies and procedures than in the children and the parent's involvement in their child's education. I feel her pain and as parents I think it would be helpful if we all started speaking up for ourselves instead of waiting for things to improve in our school district.

As a Robbinsdale parent, I feel that the school is just adequate. I don't think that the children are taught to the best of their abilities, the staff seems to cater to the lower students. I feel that there is lack of caring on the teachers part, probably due to South Dakota's low pay. They have an excellent Physical Education Teacher who involves the kids in lots of various activities including a great walking club. He is a true assest to the school. There is not a lot of parent involvement in the school, they need to do more to get parents involved. All in all this is just an average elementary school struggling to meet test scores and the No Child Left Behind Guidelines.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math. The Dakota STEP is standards-based, which means it is aligned to South Dakota's educational standards and measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state. The standards-based Dakota STEP results are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
