    Robins Elementary is a fantastic school. The teachers are amazing. They are caring creative and enthusiastic. My child is thriving here. The OMA program really adds to the curriculum and the Art program is just amazing. My child is learning math reading history and science while having fun at the same time in his art music and dance classes. When I ask him "how was school today" he always goes "GREAT!". The parent community is a really fun group and very involved.

    My child has attended this school since kindergarten and is now in fifth grade. In that time my child has had one absolutely horrible teacher and one so-so teacher. The others have been wonderful. There was no P.E. program at all for the past 2.5 years (this year they FINALLY got it going again -- twice a week). Not enough is done with regard to computers. The administration (former and present) does put a good deal of emphasis on music and art and there really is a feeling of caring among most of the staff and parents. It is a clean safe atmosphere and there is always a good parent turn out for special events.

    If you can send your child to this school do it! My son went here from Kinder to part of third. All his teachers were great! The environment is caring and all about learning! As a parent get involved with the PTO and volunteer. You will really get the feel of the school meet great parents and teachers. If we didn't have to move we wouldn't leave. So far no other school compares to Robins.

    I could not have been more pleased with the change of my childs elementary school 2 years ago. I only wish the move was made earlier to have fully taken advantage of everything that Robins has given my child. His growth both academically and socially has been tremendous! His attitude towards school and the work it takes is the most positive we have experienced by far!

    Wonderful school! Principal is all for KIDS. Teachers are committed professionals. Have some funds from Tax credit and other sources for music art and PE. Parents are somewhat involved--there is a large turnout for special events. Large amount of kids receive free and or reduced lunch.

    My son has attended Robins Elementary for kindergarden and first grade. We loved it and he did really well. It is a small school with a very involved community. Children and teachers are discouraged from celebrating a lot or having 'parties ' as it may 'detract from learning time.' And yes it's a public school.

    Robins Elementary is a nice clean environment for children to learn and play. Unfortunately if you are attending under open enrollment and you are tardy or absent more than 3 times per quarter you will quickly be weeded out of the student body to make room for the children of possibly more affluent subdivisions. But don't worry you'll have your pick of schools in the area that fall below the standard and you won't be able to send your children outside the TUSD district.
