    Featured Review: Junior says I came to Robinson 3/4ths of the way through my seventh grade year. However, since many elementary schools feed directly into Robinson, most of my classmates had known each other for 5+ years...But thanks to the wonderful, welcoming positivity of many students, and some of my own efforts, I eventually fit in.Today, as a rising senior, I look back and am very thankful for the opportunities Robinson has opened up to me.
