Robbinsdale Public School District Reviews

The district spends too much time focused on kids who can't or won't learn. They do not challenge those that are above average to help them succeed. Unfortunately produce an entire system where no one reaches their potential.
I enjoyed going to school in this district. The teachers and staff are really nice and they want to see you succeed. I think if they tried to have more counselor and student time for students to speak to counselors about college that would be nice. I was in AVID which is a program our district offers and I loved it. It has really prepared me for college and life in general. My AVID teacher has been my counselor throughout high school and I really appreciate her. I think they should require the class because not all students were able to be in AVID and I feel like it's a really good opportunity for students. Overall I enjoyed the Robbinsdale School District and I'm glad I was able to be a part of it.
Lots of bullying takes place at the different schools and school administrators are not prepared and do not handle the situations properly. Minority students receive a less than good education. Low ranking elementary and middle schools.
I love Robbinsdale Area School I've been attending these schools from my fourth grade year up to my current tenth grade year. The schools are very diverse, there is something for everyone and it is very involved. The only thing I would like here is a larger variety of sports. We have football, basketball, track and field, lacross, tennis, softball, and rugby.
Robbinsdale has a good educational idealism yet their racist, misogynistic, sexist, homophobic, and white-oriented idealisms outweigh any good.
I attended Armstrong High School all 4 years. Overall I think the experience was a pretty average high school experience. Most of the teachers care about you adn want you to succeced past High School and they do a good job and putting you on the path to achieve your goals. If I had to say something we need to approve on I would say letting the students have some say in decisions and letting the student voice be heard.
I'm currently attending at Robbinsdale cooper high school, as a junior. Throughout the years that I've attended to cooper, I grew mentally and academically. Cooper has amazing classes even though it can be overwhelming, its worth it
I honestly wish I had switched schools. My experience with this district is very poor compared to nearby schools like wayzata. This district is constantly broke. It feels like every time they have the opportunity to fix something they do exactly the opposite. I’ve been able to attend the best schools in this district and there’s soooo much room for improvement I can’t even image how bad the other schools must be.
Teachers truly care about students. They work hard to make learning unique and meaningful. Encouraged extracurricular activities. Teachers work with parents to make a quality education.
I miss the memories I had in that high school. I made a lot of great friends too there. It's the best. I will cherish the memories & graduating from that high school. Since I can't give it a million stars. Here is at least five
Bullying is rampant at Cooper high school!!!! Administration does not take seriously. I have spoken to them a couple of times and got no response
There is a lot of favoritism that goes on within this school district that you have to live with but this should change.
I loved how I was welcomed at the distict my whole life, but I lacked representation my time being here. I never had a staff body that represented students of color and i think my time wouldve been more enjoyable if that was the case. Otherwise, you could tell that the staff members cared about their student body
Basically, no different than administration in the Minneapolis schools. All they care about or want to promote is reducing the gap between whites and non-whites though they seem to include Asians in the white category. As if throwing more money is going to have any impact without actual parental participation. They sacrifice Armstrong sports to keep Cooper happy though there are practically no Cooper kids on the co-op teams. The AD at Armstrong is particularly bad. Everyone knows this and openly says it but nothing ever changes. You gotta love unions.
I think one of the changes in our school district should be more input from students. There are many surveys we take yearly, but few of them make for real change. I've been in this district my whole life (school and work) and I really love the comforting feel of it. As long as you're open to ask for help everyone is willing to give it. There is a real family vibe to the whole district.
I love that they put the kids 1st. The superintendent cares about the district and wants us to have the same amount of education as other high performing school.
I began my years in the district while in 10th grade. I had various opportunities for college prep and exposure to the college life. The staff was nice and were well prepared and knowledgeable. There wasn't always space for groups to gather. Overall I had a great experience.
