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.
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.
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.
