Principal's Corner Message
The mission of the Manhattan Beach Unified School District and Robinson Elementary School is to prepare all of our students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing, highly complex, technology-rich, global society. We continually strive for excellence in all aspects of the educational process. We teach our students to understand and appreciate human and cultural diversity. We harness the resources of the entire community, including students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, college and business leaders, and others.
We empower students to be lifelong learners, to demonstrate high achievement, and to develop the skills and characteristics needed to enjoy happy and successful lives. Built on a strong community of parents, staff, and students, Robinson teaches students to fulfill and expand their potential, not only for academics, but also for compassion, self-worth, character, and life-long learning.
With a foundation in rigorous academic standards, students embrace a spirit of excellence enabling them to use knowledge productively and creatively. Standardized test scores have shown remarkable achievement, ranking Robinson among the highest schools across the state. The efforts of our stellar teachers, along with our supportive and active parents, have created a dynamic, intimate educational environment where all students achieve their personal best. Robinson has been designated a California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon School. 
The vision of Robinson School is to create a stimulating, innovative, enjoyable, and supportive environment for learning. Robinson provides an educational experience that nurtures within young people a belief in self, a love of learning, comfort with expanding technological resources, an appreciation of the arts, and a deep compassion for the world around them.
