Welcome to Col. John Robinson School!

Our school, located on the site of revolutionary war hero Col. John Robinson’s homestead, is steeped in rich history and tradition. Our mission is to provide academic, social and emotion experiences that lay the foundation for continued success for all.
Children must feel capable and safe to learn and grow. We believe in providing children with a positive environment where they feel respected, connected and valued. We attend to the individual needs of the whole child, while developing enthusiasm for learning. Social competency is achieved by teaching problem solving skills and enhancing communication through a common language.
Our school promotes collaboration and shared responsibility through our unique open space environment in which two to three classes operate within a large room suite. Children learn to thrive within a setting that encompasses more than their individual class. Cooperation and collaboration are learned intrinsically as students observe their teachers working together on a daily basis.
Our daily actions are governed by our core values of Community, Acceptance, Responsibility and Excellence. Our school motto, “At Robinson School We All CARE,” embodies theses values and is a constant guiding principle. We welcome you to our school family!
