Absolutely pathetic. The prep for the real world is missed - too many students now teaching, doesn't anyone actually get out of the city limits? There is zero prep for college. There is zero prep for the real world. The real world to people who live here is clouded with false ideas. The administration needs to get out of the 70's and stop worrying about dress codes, hair length and trying to win an athletic event and focus on preparing their young people for success. How about get a majority of the students off to college instead of trying to win a football or basketball game? In the end, you have ill prepared teachers - teachers who themselves have not had continuing education since they left college; and an administration who has no clue how to run a top performing educational institution. For you parents out there who think its so great - really? Your children are in the lower rankings of their peers.....oh but wait, most of you grew up there and now raising your children there. Now that's growth!

Robinson ISD is a low performing school. As a graduate of Robinson, in the top of my class, I was ill prepared for college and compared to my peers, was lacking the education needed to succeed. The school has a very low rate of students who attend college. The teachers are 'nice' but do not prepare students to advance beyond high school. This is a small town school which is unable to look beyond its border and prepare its students for the world outside of Waco. The school focuses more on its conservative views, discipline, dress code and conformity of the 'very old administration'. If you have a choice to send your child to another school, even a private school, Robinson is NOT the school for you. Again, as a graduate in the top of their class, I was in the bottom of my college class. Thanks Robinson for nothing!

As a Junior at Robinson High School, i feel that some of the staff go out of their way to discipline their studends. I, myself don't have any problems with some of the rules, however some of the 'policies' are rediculous. But overall Robinson High School has a very clean, encouraging atmosphere for students, and a great athletic program (sometimes the athletics is taken to extremes as well), and a good school for your child.

The ultra low percentage of graduating students who are accepted to university should provide insight in terms of how well students attending this school are prepared for advanced education.

Robinson High School is overall a good school. Its crown jewel is the school band, which is awesome! The student body is rather homogeneous and most students are children of alumni. The sports program dominates in importance, although the other programs offer decent alternatives. Any student who wants to participate in extracurricular activities is offered the opportunity at this school. The level of parental involvement is average. Academic programs could be more challenging, in my view.

By the end of the 2003-04 schoolyear 6 of my children will have graduated from the Robinson School District. The last of my children to graduate is a young man that is multihandicapped, but you would not always know that. He has served as football manager for a number of years, as well as basketball manager, and he finds time to run track. He has been an inspiration to his school and to his family. But if it would not have been for his fine teachers and the great classmates he could have been a discouraged young man. Instead he has been an inspiration to his classmates as well. Somewhere along the way, early in his educational career he was taught that 'Rockets never quit.' This has been his philosophy all through school, and he will carry that theme throughout his life. We thank everyone involved for this.

I am currently a senior at Robinson High School. I feel school leadership is more concerned with disciplining students than encouraging them to learn. I have great teachers, but as a whole, Robinson teachers are inadequate. This year, I think too much money is being spent on sports, especially since we have a new football coach. For example, the annual Biology AP field trip that costs $600 was taken out of the budget. Don't students go to school to learn?

I think that this school is a wonderful school and it will get our children ready for the outside world. The teachers are great and the principal is a wonderful and caring person.
