Our School

“A Community for Learners” is the Robeson Elementary School theme. Students learn about communities as a part of an integrated curriculum approach through activities and focus topics. Students also experience a sense of community and talk about how people contribute to building a strong community. The Peace Builders philosophy encourages students’ efforts to take responsibility and recognizes each individual's contributions to the community. Family involvement is emphasized in special evening events, such as Family Reading Night, Family Arts Night, Winter Concerts, and Math & Science Night.

Our History

Robeson School is located in southwest Champaign and is adjacent to the beautiful Robeson Park. Originally built in 1967, a $2.1 million renovation to the school was completed in August 2014. This renovation, including a new secured front entrance and administrative spaces, renovated classroom spaced, and a renovated library, has transformed Robeson into a true 21st Century learning environment and has ensured the school will continue to serve families for many years to come.
