Great school with a professional staff. Feels like a little community whenever you are there. The FAMILY involvement is excellent and there is definitely a priority in education by the families and community. Very pleased with our kids being there. I have heard a lot of good things about the other schools in Franklin too.

I love Robinwood. My son has been there since 1st grade, is now in 5th. I agree, Mrs. Coats was wonderful. Mrs. McDermott (3rd) was AWESOME too! She helped my struggling, frustrated, behavior challenged 2nd grader so much. She took a personal interest him, taught him so much and made it fun. She is such a great teacher! We were there when Reinke was the principal, and now with Mr. Nelson. I think Mr. Nelson is doing a good job at Robinwood. I haven't noticed any changes in the school or heard of anyone unhappy. As a teacher, I am SO impressed with what my son has been learning at Robinwood. It's a very, very good school!

I personally attended this school kindergarten through 6th grade. I could not have asked for a better elementary school experience, and I am so pleased that I am now a college student looking to pursue a career in elementary education. I want to be as positive of an influence to my students as my teachers throughout the years at Robinwood were for me. I had the experience of having Mr. Reinke for a majority of elementary school, but I also had the pleasure of having Mr. Nelson for an assistant principal in high school. Both principals could not have been friendlier. I was on a first-name basis with them both in school, whether I was a student or a volunteer. Overall, Robinwood is a great school and I know that although I never experienced him as an elementary principal, the school is very privileged to have a principal as friendly and intelligent as Mr. Nelson.

I love this school. My child is new this year (3rd grade). It is way better than our old school and the staff is wonderful. The principal had a special "meet the principal" day and it appears that he knows everyone who attended that day. He always says hi to me when I help out in the school and even if I'm dropping my child off or picking him up, Mr. Nelson will greet me with a smile and say hi. My child's teacher has also been very welcoming and engaging. She called me a few times to make sure that I am pleased with the school and to make sure that my child is happy there too. I couldn't ask for a better school. :)

I love this school and more importantly so does my child. She attended last year and this year and I personally do not see that much of a change. It continues to be a great school. I am especially impressed with the lower level teachers. They are very creative, enthusiastic, and my child has learned so much. The parents are very involved and the overall school environment is very welcoming and professional. I recommend it highly.

Hi I agree with the comment on Oct 8th. The school has changed. I volunteer quite a bit, and have crossed path with the new principal a lot. But never once has he given a friendly smile or said hello..... The Ex principal Mr Reinke knew my kids name by 2nd day of school and also commented to me with name about his progress and anything that he is doing.

My daughter has attended Robinwood for the past 6 years and I have been very happy with the education she has received. She has participated in the Gifted and Talented program, and I feel this has given her enrichment opportunities above and beyond the standard curriculum. Mr. Reinke is a fantastic principal. He knows the students and their parents and I always feel welcome at the school. I am so glad that my daughter has been lucky enough to attend Robinwood!

I feel the level of academic programs is top-notch, as well as all of the teachers. The 'extra' classes are superior in all ways. The level of parenthood involvement is very noticeable whenever you are at the school! Mr. Reinke is the best person to have in the principals position! He greets each student by name every day!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.
