The principal allows bullying! He intimidates the children who witness it to change their story while they're in his office with the door closed and no other teacher present. Don't send your kids there if you don't have to-unless you teach them fighting skills!

This is a great school! The principal is caring and interested in students and their personal achievement. The staff works together well and treats students fairly. Give it a try! We need more families from our neighborhood!

This a wonderful school my daughter has been here since K-4th and will remain here till her elem days are over...we have had some bumps but I feel Mr. Nearman is the best man for the job I have not once seen him on his Ipod unlike the prev response. Tha's the problem we do not have enough parents caring about their child's education they are too busy wondering about the adults and not their own child. I love JE Robins and my youngest daughter will also go here as well....

i wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, the teachers lack discipline and the principled would rather Liston to his i pod than take a interest in the students.Mrs Ellis is the best teacher i have met and i feel she deserves a better school . she is a great asset to the school.
