King/Robinson aims to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
The school’s mission is to help students become critical thinkers and to develop positive attitudes for lifelong learning through a curriculum that emphasizes the International Baccalaureate’s inquiry-based learning philosophy, literacy, foreign languages (Spanish and French), and technology. Students participate in projects that develop the whole person to grow intellectually, aesthetically and culturally.
King/Robinson is the only school in CT authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) Program in the primary and middle grades. The Primary Years Program is organized around six themes: Who we are, Where we are in place and time, How we express ourselves, How the world works, How we organize ourselves, and Sharing the planet. The Middle Years Program is organized around five areas of interaction: Approaches to Learning, Environment, Health and Social Education, Human Ingenuity, and Community and Service.
The school building was constructed in 2004. Its design incorporates the natural beauty and views of the site, with sunlight entering the halls and rooms through floor to ceiling glass walls.
King/Robinson is a uniform school. Research has found that students are more focused and perform better in school when wearing uniforms.

What our students are saying...
«King/Robinson provides a diverse environment for education and learning. We expand our minds through making differences in our global community like having a Think Pink Day. Our favorite part is that we get to express our ideas. Our principal says every day that, 'we're the best PreK3-8th grade school on the face of the earth.'» -Nailah and Katherine, Grade 8
2012 Lottery Results Data
2012 Lottery Results Data
In an effort to help make families make informed decisions about choosing magnet and charter schools, for the first time NHPS is publishing last year’s lottery data for each magnet and charter school at the bottom of each page. Although the data changes year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available, how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood and how many applicants had siblings. Seats and applicants are specific to New Haven and suburban residents. Hopefully this added information, along with attending Open Houses, will give families the information necessary to choose schools that will fit the individual needs of their children.
