Program Overview

Our program is designed to assist students in earning a high school diploma, developing vocational skills, and providing an opportunity for personal growth. The program is designed to allow the opportunity to make up academic deficiencies and provide the student with a smaller learning environment.  We have a 22 to 1 student-teacher ratio.

 
At Robertson, a student can complete classes in an accelerated manner, earning more than 60 credits per year.  We encourage students to take additional coursework either on campus, at ROP, or adult school.


Robertson has much to offer, and we are confident that you will find success here. An important objective of Robertson High School is to assist students in better understanding their personal needs, especially as they relate to their goals in life.

 

Students are encouraged to work on the following areas as they attend Robertson High School:

  • build academic knowledge
  • develop a positive attitude
  • improve basic skills
  • establish goals for future
