Robbinsville high school is a wonderful school found in a wonderful town. If you're not from the area, Robbinsville is a beautiful and safe town to live in. We're at the center of it all; being an hour from both Manhattan and Philadelphia, we're in a very secure and popular location. The school truly prepares you for the future. Teachers are well educated, caring, and fun to learn from. There's a variety of clubs and organizations so you're bound to make friends (trust me, I'm a bit shy and I've made plenty of friends!) In all, this is a wonderful school to attend. I graduated last year (2013) and truly benefitted from my four years there. Great school!

Moved to the area last year with a special needs child and senior . The school district and teachers have been nothing less than awesome! I love the school system here. The schools have excellent programs and really strive to educate the youth and keep the community involved.

From the time your child enters the door as a Freshman, they feel secure and that this is their school. If your child is at the top of their class or is in need of extra help, this is a great place to be. Moreover, wait and see as the test scores will continue to elevate.

Small yet fairly diverse student body. Wide variety of interests represented. AP classes are small and well taught. Staff and admin are very caring and approachable. Being a new high school it seems to be getting better with time.

My child has friends and finds most of the kids respectful and friendly. The sports programs are competitive and the teachers are fair when it comes to assignments and workload. I would recommend this school to other parents.

I absolutely loved my experience at Robbinsville High. The teachers and staff were amazing and very supportive. I felt more than adequately prepared when I started college. There was a tremedous respect among students, and it was extremely rare to see legit bullying or cruelty take place. The school is located on the edge of a large development and the town as a whole is very safe.

Great school, great area, great teachers. I've never had an encounter with mean girls or complaints. The teachers handle situations well. There are rarely ANY fights and if so they are minute and are broken up fast. If your child is too outspoken, rebelious or close minded to others views then that's when problems occur in this school, but everyone takes ideas in well. I recommend this school to any teenager moving into the area. The work load is enough for students that they don't get overworked, but it's enough to prepare for college. The school is also very good on preparations for college and helping students apply or find them. As this is a new school i agree there are some bumps in the road, but they are most definetly working them out. The first class to graduate, graduated with more than enough credits.

Great school in a wonderful area. Never saw any mean girls or bullies but a few hysterical parents every once in a while.

Overall a great school. Teachers don't overload students with work, but i think it is enough. Some of the college prep classes are almost too easy, but the honors and AP are challenging. Most teachers are great witha few exceptions in my opinion. There are some clubs here. The sports are competitive and they are taken seriously. Once again, the school is really great.

Many mean girl types here and bullies. Think twice before you send your good child to this school. If your child is an Alpha type they'll be met with many mean girls clicks. Faculty seems exhausted and unable to manage these issues well. Pulled my child out after 2 months.

Robbinsville is a beautiful new high school in an affluent area with parents who care about their kids. As a new school, They are still working the kinks out to some degree, one being a lack of funding. There are many younger staff that were hired for what seems to be monetary reasons as it is cheaper to hire younger and as they weed out the good teachers from the bad, things are getting better. From an extracurricular perspective, clubs and such are really just getting off the ground. The kids themselves have good support at home so the educational atmosphere is competitive from a student to student perspective, at least that is what I see with my daughter and her friends who are all honors and AP students. Because of the economic area, this school will get better and better as time progresses.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
