Robinson Secondary School opened in 1971 and was named in honor of Sergeant James W. Robinson, Jr., the first Virginia resident to receive the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry and heroism in the Vietnam conflict. The record of his performance is held in the highest regard by all members of the Robinson community, and provides a model for character and leadership that extends to all facets of our school program.
At the high school level, Robinson strives to prepare students to successfully meet the many challenges of a global society. We recognize that those challenges include technological, cultural, environmental, ethical, and societal issues that, in turn, demand strong technical and interpersonal skills. Consequently, our curriculum is diverse and includes a broad range of courses in the humanities, arts, and sciences with an emphasis on the use of technology across the curriculum.
Robinson's student activities program, composed of over 100 organizations and teams, supports a strong belief that a student's academic success and social development are strengthened through active involvement in school activities. In addition, Robinson Secondary is proud to be a member of the Robinson Community Coalition, a model program for cooperation and collaboration among all members of the community to address issues that affect its youth.
