School Overview


Welcome to King/Robinson Interdistrict Magnet School, where we bring the world to your doorstep.

We aim to develop internationally-minded people who help to create a better and more peaceful world by recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet. We educate our students to be rigorous thinkers with positive attitudes using the International Baccalaureate’s inquiry- based learning philosophy, literacy, foreign languages and technology. We are the only school in Connecticut authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Organization Program in the primary and middle years.

How to Know King/Robinson School is Right for Your Child:


  • Your child’s favorite question is “why?”
  • Your child is driven to be an investigator and uncovering how the world works to help make it a better place.
  • Your child is interested in learning to speak a foreign language.


Unique Ways Your Child Can Learn and Grow Here:


  • The highly rigorous International Baccalaureate Programs prepare our students to be able to perform at the university, post-graduate and professional levels anywhere in the world.
  • Partial French Immersion in Grades K-4 and performances in French and Spanish mean our students are not just learning languages but also using them to be able to think, communicate and succeed in non-English speaking settings.
  • Out-of-state and out-of-country visits to Washington DC and Montreal, Canada expose our students to cultures and places away from home to help them be more worldly citizens who serve as bridges of understanding and peace.

2014 Lottery Results Data

2014 Lottery Results Data 

In an effort to help families make informed decisions about choosing a school, New Haven Public Schools is publishing last year’s lottery data for each Magnet and Charter School. Although the data changes year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available for each school. Also, you can see how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood, and how many applicants had siblings. These numbers reflect a combined total of all first, second and third school choices of each applicant. We hope this information, along with the opportunity to attend open houses, will help families choose schools that will fit the needs of their children.
