Wonderful. There’s always room for improvement and no school should ever be satisfied their performance in my opinion but overall Robinson has been a great school for our children and has provided them diverse academic options to explore and excel in as well as a huge range of sports, language options, and the arts. We find that the IB and AP options are great too. Though the overall school is large and intimidating to parents whose children are entering from ES, Robinson do a great job integrating kids into middle school and making sure the children aren’t overwhelmed. The older High School kids are kept separate on another side of campus and this applies to lunch schedules as well. Each family’s experience will be unique. We’ve made many friends from being a part of the Robinson community. Volunteering is a great way to make friends and have an impact. After this year we will have successfully navigated our two children through Robinson Secondary. We feel this school will continue to have a bright future.
B-U-L-L-Y-I-N-G is a huge problem at this school. And I mean HUGE! There is a lot preached to the students about not bullying but the school administrators do not do anything to those who are the bullies. It is the students who are bullied that are either ignored, afraid to go to school staff, chose to self-harm, or if they stand up for themselves are either 1) expelled from FCPS, 2) sent to an alternative HS, 3) reassigned to another HS, or 4) long-termed suspended. NOTHING happens to the person who is harassing. So bullies continue to bully without consequences. Of the Fairfax INOVA hospital's self harm cases for HS students, 20% attend RSS. RSS, along with So County HS, and Centerville HS are the top 3 HS with bullying issues in FCPS. When reviewing the reviews, please take a look at the date. The reviews are old and the school has relatively new leadership.
My daughter joined Robinson Secondary in the academic year 2015. It's been a great journey so far! I must comment on how friendly and caring the office staffs are! My daughter loves all her teachers who are always ready to lend helping hands. Mr.Woods is making a difference in teaching math to his students. "He is awesome and I never had a math teacher who makes math seems easier," are the words of my daughter. :) May God Bless this school and help it to serve the students in gaining knowledge and wisdom, always!!!Thank you, All Robinson Staffs !!!A well-wisher and a happy mommy
One of the best schools in the area, not only because of the astonishing education level, students grads and awesome teachers, but for the ability to creat the feel of belonging to the kids, the team work and the family environment ..
