Our academic program will be enhanced by increased course offerings in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. We plan to expand our College Board AP and language course offerings. We will also work closely with students, especially in our Middle and Upper Schools, to maximize their overall GPAs (grade-point averages), which are becoming increasingly important for acceptance to leading universities, often as much as SAT scores.
In keeping with IB principals, our academic program aims to promote the education of the whole person through a coherent sequence of education that emphasizes intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth. The education of the whole person is manifested in all the principal domains of knowledge, including languages, humanities, sciences, mathematics and the arts.
The IB program also promotes a global perspective by encouraging student and faculty exchange with other countries. Our curriculum includes the following requirements: students must study at least two languages; draw examples from different countries in their daily school work; develop an appreciation of other cultures’ traditions and religious practices; address global issues and provide possible solutions, considering multiple perspectives. As such, Robinson School is committed to the IB’s mission to “develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”
