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.
