    "The Robinson community is an amazingly diverse and inclusive community where you have the opportunity to participate in almost any kind of club, activity, or sport you can think of!"

    "I think that Robinson has a very large academic focus but only when it comes to the International Baccalaureat (IB) programs. They treat all the students enrolled in IB classes or taking the full IB diploma like they are better than students in either Advanced Placement (AP) classes, honors classes, or regular classes. In addition to that, the IB classes are not nearly as rigorous as AP classes at other schools. However, the teachers and administration do not recognize or hold AP to the same idealized standard they hold IB and the students in these other classes are often viewed as less academically inclined even if they are not. The school itself is overdue for renovation, there are leaks in the roof and the bathrooms are rarely operable. Clubs are often only used as something to put onto a college application and do not actually do anything. This does not apply to every club but a good portion of them are just fronts."

    "I really like Robinson. I like the classes they offer and the teachers are really nice. There are definitely a lot of teachers that I feel comfortable talking about my personal life, and I know they can help me in case of any problems. The campus is beautiful, but it gets very crowded since the middle schoolers are there, too."

    "Robinson is one of the best and biggest schools in fairfax county. I've been from 7 through 12 grade and it has been really easy to make new friends. The only thing I'll do is make renovations to this school. I don't think they have ever renovated it here but I would like to see that in the upcoming years."

    "Overall the school is very inclusive of everyone and routinely hosts wonderful events for both minority and special education students. The school population is incredibly large and therefore offers huge opportunities to make friends and meet new people. The teachers are incredibly friendly most of the time and there is always easy access to resources such as IB Coordinators and counselors."
