Robinson Secondary School Reviews

I am currently attending Robinson Secondary School, and overall I love the enthusiasm, and school spirit represented, by both the teachers and students. All interactions I have had with the staff and administrators have been open, and extremely genuine. I have had lovely experiences with the majority of my teachers, and feel as if they want me to succeed! The teachers are very informed about their subjects, and have fun ways of giving the students hands-on experiments and simulations, to better understand the topics discussed in class. The few things I would change are the size, and the counseling staff. Robinson is a very large school, due to the size and large population, the hallways can feel incredulously cramped and claustrophobic at times. Robinson also has many counselors, assigned to students by last name, I feel that they neglect to adhere to students' mental needs. In my experience, they will push aside an emotional problem to discuss grades, which is discouraging.

All of the IB and honors teachers are very passionate about their jobs, and I have learned so much from them. Administration cares about their students, too. I have had issues with other students, and my principle helped me feel comfortable in school again. The school cares about the mental health of their students and offers many opportunities for students to decompress and enjoy their high school experience. You have to attend at least one Robinson football game and join an arts program! All of the performing arts teachers are phenomenal and have nationally/globally ranked programs. Go rams!
Robinson is a great school! While it is not perfect, the staff and students for the most part are very friendly and willing to listen. The academics are exceptional, if your willing to apply yourself there, you will get a lot out of you experience. As far as experience is concerned, the student life is pretty good as well. There is always active participation at football games and the SGA does a good job at boosting moral throughout the school.
