Welcome to Robinson School’s Upper School. Our program encompasses a rigorous college preparatory program. We embrace the values of a classical academic program, which provides the opportunity to participate in a positive educational experience within a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our major goal is to encourage creativity, critical thinking and the necessary social skills to develop responsible citizens who meet the challenging demands of today’s society.
The Upper School places a high priority on the love of learning, the use of talents and skills for the greater good, and respect for the diversity of the Robinson community and the larger community of which the school is a part.
Students in the Upper School mix a challenging academic schedule with sports, social activities, and community service. They know that their success, like other things important in life, comes from self-motivation, dedication and perseverance. They achieve a solid academic grounding through a superior liberal arts curriculum with numerous electives that enable them to explore individual interests. There are a wide variety of advanced placement courses offered and our teachers have been certified to teach these courses by the College Board. In addition, students can choose to participate in many extracurricular activities or on many different sports teams.
The Upper School prepares students for entrance into selective colleges and universities. All graduating seniors are accepted into college and many high caliber schools personally visit our campus each year to attract students to their schools. To meet the needs of such an able and motivated student body, Robinson School recruits a highly talented academic faculty and offers small classes with easy access to teachers and learning resources. Our College Counselor, who has more than 15 years of experience, has earned the respect of college admissions officers throughout the country.
