Winship-Robbins Elementary School District was formed in July 2005 when Robbins Elementary, a part of Yuba City Unified School District, joined Winship Elementary. Winship had been a one-school district in Sutter County since 1863, and Robbins School dates back to 1927. The reorganization of the two small schools into one district has combined resources and strengthened both schools.
Robbins has a teaching staff of nine, and the classes are combined in different ways depending on the number of students in each grade. For 2016/17, we have a full day Tk/kindergarten, 1st, 2nd/3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. The 7th, and 8th grades change classes and rotate through 2 teachers throughout the day. There are three aides to assist both in the classroom and in the afternoon intervention program for students who need a little more support.
We have a breakfast and lunch program, a school secretary-bookkeeper, a bus driver/maintenance person, and a part-time custodian. Free bus transportation is available.
Our rural atmosphere and old-fashioned family values are a rarity in this era, and we are proud to say that our schools offer sound educational training along with a good dose of character. Our test scores have improved dramatically over the past couple of years, and we are continually fine-tuning our curriculum and our staff to offer quality education to small groups of lucky children.
