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. It’s a huge school—coming up on 4,000 students—with many resources for extracurriculars...Pros:- Opportunities for advanced coursework, especially through IB Diploma- Student services, including for disabled and ESOL students- Lots of extracurricular activities & athleticsCons:- Some teachers, admins, students can get out of line, bad attitudes, etc. - Bathrooms.
