Message from Principal Yara

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to a new school year. At Robertson High School, we want to make this an exciting and successful academic year for all students. Your active support and cooperation, combined with outstanding teaching at Robertson will ensure academic success.

Our goal at Robertson High School is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum. Our mission is to do this in a student centered environment with the moral imperative that we do what is best for all students. We believe that every child can achieve success, and to this end every child will be provided with a quality interactive instructional experience where we recognize, support, and have high expectations for all students.

This year we have gone through many changes and know that our resilient staff will continue to provide the best education possible. We would like to welcome our staff members that have joined us from Memorial Middle School and our elementary schools, along with our one new staff member to the Las Vegas City Schools. Many of our staff members have taken on new roles and additional duties to ensure that all students in the Las Vegas City Schools receive a quality education. Looking forward to an exciting school year!

Sincerely,

Mike Yara
