Our Mission

At Paul Robeson High School, we seek daily to educate and prepare our students to be responsible productive citizens and lifelong learners, who will be college and career ready in our global society. We are raising the bar for education in Philadelphia. In our efforts to maintain high standards of excellence, we rely on the support of parents, students, alumni and the community at large.

We educate students with diverse academic backgrounds, and we believe all students can learn at the highest levels. Through academic achievement, high expectations for learning, and character development, we will provide our students with one of the most rigorous and relevant educational experiences offered in the School District of Philadelphia.
