Paul Robeson Academy is one of Detroit Public Schools premiere learning institutions. It is a school of choice meaning that students enrolling in the school have to have at least a 2.5 GPA, good citizenship and parents must pledge their support and participation to the school. At Robeson Academy, academics are taken very seriously and Principal Jeannette Collins and her staff of highly qualified educators say that “ensuring that all students achieve to their maximum potential is Robeson Academy’s primary goal.”
Named in honor of the influential African-American singer, actor and social activist, students at Robeson Academy are challenged each and every day to learn and achieve. The staff provides students the tools they need to succeed, and the students do just that. Robeson Academy students have been recognized with numerous awards for their academic achievement and the school continues to offer challenging curriculum to students who readily take on the challenge.
Students are invited to participate in Academic Games, AP classes, Foreign Language Courses, Technology and IT classes, and more. Robeson Academy staff believes in developing well rounded individuals so students are also encouraged to explore their interest through the schools sports programs, choir, music, band, drama and dance! Computer labs and after school tutoring sessions are also open to students to aid in the process of learning.
Paul Robeson Academy believes the key to increasing academic achievement is by building a strong partnership between teachers, dedicated parents and strong community involvement. The continued success of Robeson Academy students is proof that the school’s philosophy is being achieved.
