    I have been very Blessed as a parent to work with some wonderful teachers and principal at Robinson Elementary School. They take time with your children and they care for your child and their well being.

    Beautiful old building sitting quietly tucked in a side street. Lots of children went through there and have memories!

    I am not very pleased with the education my kids are getting from this school. After transferring my kids here I find that the school is behind academically. The way some of the teachers speak to the kids is unprofessional and unexceptable but so is the poor parent involvement. My kids were bored and had already learned most of what was being taught but some of the other downfalls of the school can be helped with a little more parent and community involvement.

    My child started Kindergarten their last year and it was so scary for me . Taking her out of Daycare and moving her to another school. But the Home School Connection they had was wonderful her teachers came out tand introduced themselves to us and familarized us with the school and made themselves available to us her first year ended in a sucess and the principal was wonderful. Thanks Robinson and thank you Ms. Thompson

    i had one son that started k there and his teacher was very involved in thekids all of the goals she set at the begining of the school year she made and then some. my son came out of k reading almost on a second grade level. he attened the following year and we had the same result. i am a firm believer that it is not all about a school system or a particular school itself its about the teachers and their passion about teaching.

    I must say from person experience because I have two kids one who graduated from B'ham school and one attending now. Both in the past attended County school before going to B'ham city. If you think there's any school without incidents sorry! There are many incidents they are just not reported I wonder why? But we can't let the few negative overshadow the positive. A school is a building we as a society makes that school. Encourage your buyers to visit these schools. I ride through many neighborhoods in B'ham and surrending areas and houses are for sale for months even years. Is there a problem in these school? You and most of your buyers are probably product of B'ham school. Send your child where you like but be realistic. It take a village!

    Hats down to Robinson Elementary! My nephew started this school last week and was attacked by classmates the FIRST DAY! His third day of class which was today January 11 2005 he was attacked by not only boys in his class but bullies from another class. Where was the teacher? According to my nephew watching the incident. She did not call his mother or father and I am so upset. I have told his parents TAKE HIM OUT! This school is the reason parents do not want to send their childrent to a Bimingham City School. How do I know? I am real estate agent and no matter how much house a buyer can buy they do not want their children in a Birmingham City School. I am not a parent but I would not send my child to Robinson or any other Birmingham City Schhol.
