Welcome to all in the JRPS school community!

Our staff have a strong commitment to student achievement and well-being, creating an environment where everyone feels safe, welcome and respected. Throughout the year your child will be provided with many opportunities to grow intellectually, socially and emotionally within a framework emphasizing a positive self-concept.  We are working together to support improved student achievement and well-being. As a school we develop our school goals - which align with York Region’s 3 areas of focus:  Mathematics, Mental Health, Modern Learning.

As a staff, we believe all Robinson students are OUR students. We take joint responsibility for each of their successes. We believe that all students have the right to feel like this is their home– that they belong – that they are respected as individuals and that they have a voice. Our goal is the development of citizens who will think critically, make decisions wisely, respect others, and behave responsibly. We embrace student voice and student choice to help guide our school initiatives and learning activities.


We believe communication is critical for student success.  Your children, our students, must see us as partners in their education.  We will contact you if your child develops patterns of poor decision making, and when they are not engaged in their learning.  We will ask that we work together to strategize our next steps towards improvement.  We will also contact you when there is reason for specific praise and celebration of success as we are often proud of student achievement and are excited to let you know -  as well as to ask you to extend the praise at home. Likewise, we welcome the opportunity to hear from students and parents if there is a situation of which we need to be aware, or an achievement that needs to be celebrated.


We hope that you are proud of our school, that you know that your voice matters, and that you feel a sense of belonging in the James Robinson PS school community. We look forward to our continued learning and growing together in this wonderful school community.

Gillian Patrick and Krista Keirstead
