Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

Robinson Secondary School Reviews
Robinson is a great school! I've been to quite a few and Robinson is the best. Most of the teachers are great and they offer a great selection of classes. If you're looking for an IB school, Robinson is the biggest in the US. AP classes are also offered, but if you're looking just for AP classes, another school in the area might have more options.
Just about any extracurricular activity you can think of is offered at Robinson. There are a ton of sports (from football to rifle and everything in between.) The theatre department is great, but Fairfax High School is going to offer a better program.
Most students at our school take Spanish, followed by French, German, Latin, then Chinese. Most language teachers are great and Spanish, French, German, and Latin all have very active after school clubs and activities.
There's so much more to say, but I'll end on my favorite thing about Robinson: our principle, Mr. Meyer, is awesome! He's very involved; always going to school events and popping into the cafeteria at lunch just to say hi. I've never had a better principle.
