Paul Robeson is an excellent Highschool and has a very family like enviorment I love the teachers, and the students are sweethearts. Teachers work overtime to ensure that the students learn correctly and have a thorough understanding of what it being taught. They have sports and extracurricular activities for students to participate in such as soccer or volleyball. Mr. Gordan, the principle is a phone call away if any issues or problems arise and I truly appreciate that. Paul Robeson is the best school in Philly.

When I first came to this school I was really shy and not really communicating with people, at the end of 10th grade I became more comfortable, the school is great the principal is a outstanding guy, he works hard to see his students graduate. You should come to this school too it’s a right fit you won’t regret it
Robeson is a city wide Philadelphia special Admission school. When being reviewed to enter Robeson HS staff members focus on academics, how many times students have previously been late and attendance. Robeson is a tight knit family like school. Rising freshman are interviewed by current Robeson students to make things feel a little more comfortable. The process is great if you ask me!
