JMRHS is an excellent school with many opportunities for all students. As a mother of two bright but not athletic sons, they found Ms. Boger's theater arts classes to be a great niche. Quiz Bowl was another great way to connect and excel and all their teachers were caring and skilled at engaging their students. It has a very involved PTO and Booster Club which speaks volumes to me when the parents are willing to give of their time, talents and money.

As the mother of two JMRHS students, I am thrilled with the education our sons are getting. The teachers are dedicated and involved and challenge them daily. Extra-curricular activities abound, offering something for everyone. It's a large school, but it doesn't feel like one.

I have 2 sons, both A students, involved in athletics, and many clubs, who love their school. We have been very proud to be a bulldog, love our teachers and the administration. Ms. Mack is great.

Our school is a great school because of its caring principals, teachers, parents and staff. There is always someone eager to help both the students and parents when needed. Thank you for your consideration of our school.

Jay M. Robinson encourages academic success as well as student involvement in extracurricular activities. They have strong involvement in the arts, especially their marching and concert bands. They offer many service clubs and fun clubs as well as a very strong atheletic program. We have strong parent participation and support in our band and atheletic boosters and PTO. This year we have a strong, visible, involved administration.

JMRHS has an ber awesome learning environment. The principal and her assistants are approachable and care about students and teachers. Teachers love working here because of the quality of the facilities and the super students. We are just like one big family. :-)

Our school is effectively using technology in the classrooms to engage students in the learning atmosphere. Students enjoy coming ot school because teachers are caring and try out new methods of teaching!

I am a Junior at Robinson. I believe the Princpals actually care about the students, especially Mrs. Mack. The teachers here, with the exception of few, are great and care about the students. The students here are also very involved in extra curricular activities, but there is very low pride in this school regarding every sport.

I didnt really like robinson because it didnt seem like they cared about their students.


Posted July 23, 2008

Poor administrative leadership. No one returns calls or cares about the students. the administrators are only concerned with their career advancement, not the future or the students. So dissatisfied that I removed my child from this school.

I am a parent of a senior at Jay M Robinson and I am very proud of this school and all of the accomplishments. Mr. Smith is a true leader and will be missed when he assumes his new leadership position. The teachers are wonderful, but some are questionable and the students who actually attend this school to acquire an eduction do so exceptionally well. When you read the Independant Tribune and see students earning scholarships, most if not all of them are Jay M. Robinson students. What a great testament to this wonderful school.

I worked at this school for 4 years and would recommend this school with the highest Regard. The staff is excellent and the administration work very hard to make the school the absolute best it could be. The only problem with the school is the parents that try to run it themselves. They are upset that their child doesnt make all A's all the time. The parents frequently try to control, but the staff and administration back each other up. It is a wonderful school. Ask the staff anf students, because they are there everyday. Dont ask parents.

Posted July 10, 2006

As a parent of a Robinson High School student I am very disappointed in the school. My student states that one teacher instructs strictly from the textbook and cannot answer basic questions without referring to the text. Other teachers lack the ability to instruct and deliver content effectively. Also, my husband and I feel that the Guidance Counselor assigned to our student is careless in follow-up and is generally unapproachable. We have had confidential paperwork lost by school administration and have received incorrect grades on report cards. We do not recommend this school to anyone.

I am currently a freshman at Robinson. I am enjoying this school, I feel very safe at this school and the teachers are kind and helpful to others. Also the principal has set rules that have been enforced and taken care of. At my school there are not many fights which is good.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
