Robison is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are wonderful as well. They are very helpful. My grandson is in the first grade and is doing exceptionally well. He was not at all looking forward to starting school his first year. His kindergarten teacher did wonders with him as is his first grade teacher.

Always room for improvement, but overall a good public school. Wish the teachers communicated on a more personal basis with the parents through notes.

The teachers at Robison are wonderful. They go above and beyond to ensure students are successful, safe, and happy.

The VIP's parents are very 'clickish', very hard for outsiders to join the ranks and feel wanted. The teachers teach to the TAKS (what school doesn't) as this is what the state and local levels want. You really need to ask and ask for additional work for your child or obtain your own from an educational store.

This school is great IF your children fit into the 'norm' or are advanced. But if they need special education, you have to fight for it and then still don't get it. I guess it will mess up their rating.

The school needs a bit more focus on what really matters like teaching to the child and not to a test. Also, respect for others is lacking in both children to other children and teachers to children.

My oldest son started kindergarten at Robison the year it opened. Now he is in 4th grade and my 1st grader is there as well. The weekly newsletter is very thorough and the faculty is great! I teach in a different district and chose to keep my kids at Robison.

Robison Elementary is an absolutely wonderful school. Both of my daughters have attended here. Robison teachers prepared my oldest daughter above & beyond for middle school. She was in spec ed and was dismissed b/c of the wonderful teachers & administration. They went the extra mile for her. My youngest daughter has also done extremely well. She is confident in her studies and is very well prepared as well. The teachers are creative in their teaching and presentation of the curriculum. I would choose no other school for my daughters to attend in elementary. The administration, front desk personel, assistant principals and principal are always present in the school and all times of the day. They are willing to meet with you if you have a problem. The communication from teacher to parent is outstanding. I highly recommend this school.

My child is in Kindergarten and is doing very well. I have issues with the principal who seems to find a problem with just about everything. He is very concerned with liability above all else. Parent/volunteer involvement is excellent.

My daughter attended 5th Grade (1st year as we just moved to texas). She did okay at the school. My son was in the1st grade and did very well at the school and is looking forward to 2nd grade. The PTO and volunteer group are really focuses on social events and raising money for the school. I agree with some of the concerns about the policy and procedures.We had an incident and contacted the school. While I respect the privacy rights of the other stduents, the person at the school did not call me back and could not elaborate on the resolution.

My child attended the pre-school special ed program at Robison. While I found the teachers to be wonderful and nurturing, I was extremely disappointed in the administration (the principal in particular). My impression was that money (school funding)and test scores were more important to the administration than the needs of my child.

This school has many problems. The teachers are not cooperative in helping to work with your child. You can ask them for help with your child and they initally may help but it is all too soon forgotten. They are not preparing these students for middle school. These kids are going to be in shock when they go to 6th grade and actually have homework and in every class. They teach to the taks and that is all they worry about. The administration of this school has an attitude that you as the parent do not know what you are talking about and they know everything and are superior, therefore dismissing you and your comments.

Robison has an overabundance of parental involvement. The PTO is fabulous and truly tries to make the teachers and staff feel happy and appreciated while also trying to enrich the children. The children have the opportunity to attend educationally enriching field trips and activities such as Colonial days, Roman days, nature trails, science and sea exhibits and much more. The library and staff provides the childen with many reading incentive programs throughout the year.

Great school for our child. They really keep up with the child ability to achieve their goals.

Our 2nd grader has always worked from copies of worksheets to take home. The teaching method was not given to the parents, although we were asked to help out quite a bit. Our child was an A/B student, averaging out at an A. The PTO seems to be focused on generating revenue, with programs constantly being organized every month and asking for volunteers, so you won't be an expense on their payroll. To volunteer your time (at a school activity or field trip), you need to take a training class. Otherwise, your contribution/concern is not warranted without 'proper training'. The procedures and policies were too structured, giving a 'military feel', limiting the school of any liability. The adults 'train' your children, not allowing them to be children. Our child does not attend this school any longer.

Robison Elementary's academic programs are strictly TAKS focused. The teachers teach from worksheets, not the books that we pay huge tax dollars for, and seldom supply the objectives or methods to use to complete them. While the PTO is constantly planning social events for the staff, they contribute to the overal school. We have a huge issue with the principle. The child is always wrong or at fault, or misunderstood if there is ever a concern over actions taken by him or the staff. My best advice is to transfer to another elementary!
