PSAT Scores

All students that sat for the PSAT in October of 2018 should have received their score report through their Homeroom teachers this week.  Please keep the information as it has many useful tools and links you can use to better help your student at the individual level.  Students will also be able to access a full report through Collegeboard.org.  Don't forget that the volunteers in The Cube are here to help any students take advantage of the free resources available to all of our students.  
Special Note for the Class of 2021
Our sophomores will be officially entering the IB Diploma Programme next year and soon will be making selections for their two year plan of study.  The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum sets out the requirements for study of the DP.  The curriculum is made up of the DP core and six subject groups.   In the next couple of weeks, Mr. Johnson and Mrs. George will be visiting our current sophomores to review and help them make their course selections. 

To learn more about the IB Diploma Programme and review course offerings, please visit this comprehensive new IB programming website developed by Mr. Johnson and Mrs. George for our Robinson IB students. 

(Our freshman and juniors submitted their course selection forms for the 2019-2020 school year before the winter break.)

Nominate Our Teachers

Bay News 9 is starting a new initiative in January called  A+ Teachers .  They are asking students or their parents to nominate amazing teachers who go out of their way every day to ensure student success.  Bay News 9 will pick a teacher from the nominees and come out to Robinson to visit their classroom. They produce a feature story on what makes the teacher an awesome educator. Students and Parents, please send an email to  teachers@charter.com  and explain what makes their teacher A+!
