We are pleased to announce that Cindy Ogg has been officially appointed Robinson Head of School by our Board of Trustees. With 22 years of service here at Robinson, Cindy has also served as Elementary School Principal and Coordinator of our International Baccalaureate candidacy, as well as both Assistant and Interim Head of School.
Mrs. Ogg has played a vital role in the advancement of our Strategic Plan which comprises the certification of our Primary Years and Middle Years IB Program, already being implemented, and ultimately the IB Diploma Program. She has also helped boost our Scholarship and Endowment Funds, with the help of our Institutional Advancement Team, and our ongoing school renovations, which will take Robinson into the 21st Century as a cutting-edge world school.
The Board and Mrs. Ogg are also pleased to announce the creation of a two new positions at Robinson School: Academic Dean and Operations Manager.
Interim Academic Dean
Yesenia Ramos, who has been appointed Interim Academic Dean, will be working closely with the Head of School to coordinate our academic program.

She has functioned as the Department Head of the History Department and the Language Arts Department during her time here. In addition, she has worked closely in developing and implementing the Diploma IB Program. As Interim Academic Dean, Yesenia will oversee our academic program, including curriculum development and IB implementation, and work directly with Robinson’s Department Heads to provide guidance and direction.
Jannette Santiago has been appointed Operations Manager and will be working side by side with our Head of School, Business Office, Maintenance, and Security teams. Mrs. Santiago has been part of the Robinson family for the past 15 years as Business Manager. As such, no one is better prepared to lead our operations, renovations projects, and other Strategic Plan initiatives. Mrs. Santiago has been instrumental in the success of our capital projects over the years. As Operations Manager, she will continue to take the lead on upcoming renovations. Her hands-on experience with budget management and operations make her the ideal person to team up with Mrs. Ogg to continue taking Robinson to the next level.
