My daughter likes going to school and likes her teacher, which is a definite plus this year considering everything going on. I grew up in the district, and I don't think our public schools get enough credit. They're offering a lot of different variety than they did when I was in school, and it's kind of nice to get that as an option.
It's a district that produces. It produces for us and everyone. They offer programs where people can excel, and then they help.ROBBINSDALE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PARENT
