Our son attended Robbins all 5 grades and is now attending Memorial High School. He still remembers his teachers names at Robbins and when stopped in a few months ago for a fund raiser his teachers remembered his name! He is always on the honor roll and a really good artist. Robbins really helped him get off to a great start and I highly recommend this school to anyone!

This is an EXCELLENT school. Anyone looking to move into the area should choose Robbins. This school has a high reputation and has amazing teachers. We are looking to purchase a home soon, but our one stipulation is that it has to be within the Robbins school area. Our daughter is overly excited to go to school each day and her teacher will even send me notes to tell me how great she is doing. I cannot say enough good things about this school.

DO NOT TRULY UNDERSTAND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN. LIKE TO CAUSE PROBLEMS AND DO NOT LIKE TO COME TO THE PARENT FIRST WHEN THERE IS A CONCERN

My son attended this school from Kindergarten to 5th grade and loved it. He made a lot of friends and has fond memories of all the teachers. He is now a straight A student in High School.

My son attended this school from K-5 and completed his elementary education with a Presidents Award for Academic Excellence. Of course credit can be given to the child for a strong work ethic and dedication but the teachers also were an integral part of making his success attainable! I loved this school and the teachers and staff were second to none!

Robbins is a wonderful school. My daughter loves it. She especially loves sliding during recess! The staff is aware of all of the various learning abilities/levels within each classroom. We are thrilled and she is thriving to say the least! As a parent I have been welcomed into the PTO. Most teachers encourage parent volunteers within the classroom. The Principal, Andrew Thiel is very accesible and seems excited about his job. I can't say enough good about Robbins!

We love Robbins school! We are so sad that we will be leaving Eau Claire because we are afraid that we will never find another school like this one. Everyone at this school is exceptional from the Principal to the janitors! So many of the parents are involved in the classroom and social experience that the level of caring and development of programs is really unique. The class sizes are small because of the SAGE program and the excitement that the teachers instill in the children for learning is remarkable!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
