Prospective Student Open House
& Student Shadowing Opportunities

Robinson High School IB's Prospective Student Open House will be held on Thursday, November 8th beginning at 6:00 p.m. All students interested in learning more about the IB program at Robinson High School and their families are invited to attend. 

We would also like to invite any interested 8th grade students to come visit our campus and feel like a Knight for a day! Shadowing opportunities are available on six specific dates beginning October 22nd through February 4th. Students many reserve a spot for a day that works best for their schedule by registering here: Shadow at Robinson IB.

Students registered to shadow are to report on their date to RHS by 9am. They will take part in a short presentation by some of the IB Faculty and students in the auditorium and will then pair up with a current IB student to experience a day in the IB World! Students will need to be picked up at 1:15pm on Mondays, or 2pm on Tuesdays-Fridays, where they will receive a letter to take back to their school proving their attendance for the day. Lunch can be brought from home or purchased from our school's nutrition service for $2.75.  Students may want to bring a notepad and paper so they can write down important info or questions they have along the way.  We're looking forward to meeting you!

Please spread the word to families that are interested in exploring RHS IB about our Open House date and Student Shadowing opportunities. 

Our  RobinsonHighIB.com   website has all the information listed above and much more under Applying To RHS IB/Application Process.

End of First Quarter Report Cards

High school Q1 report cards will be available online October 31. Families will access the report card using the same PIN used to view report cards last school year.   If a parent or guardian does not have a PIN, it can be requested electronically by selecting "Request a PIN" on the report card website at https://reportcards.sdhc.k12.fl.us . Additional information is provided for families on the school district website by searching on "go reportcards".  
Help for Students

As we are now a quarter of the way through the school year, hopefully students have been able to find a rhythm to their course load.  We know juggling school and outside activities can be a little tricky; therefore, we've created a Need Help? Flyer for your child and family.  The Need Help? Flyer (which looks great on a refrigerator by the way!) lists all of the helpful resources available through Robinson and the IB program.  In addition to all of the great information, you will see a new schedule for ELP available each day for FREE after school.  

Hillsborough County Public School District's referendum on the November 6th voting ballot  will help to provide our schools with funding for various building improvements and  upgrades on campuses, and provide funds for new construction to address  overcrowding issues in many schools. 

Robinson High School's noted projects on the school district's list are -

Years 1 to 5: Air Conditioning Replacement or Overhaul, Fire Evacuation Improvements, Outdoor Court Replacement, Replace Public Address System, School Exterior Painting and Waterproofing Project,  School Interior Repainting Project
Years 6 to 10: Replace Fire Alarm System
