Named after a great American athlete, civil rights pioneer, humanitarian and role model, our school community strives to live up to the values Jackie Robinson promoted. The culture of JROB is devoted to instilling a sense of purpose into our students. We encourage them to have a “Winning Attitude.” Accordingly, we stress “Jackie’s Nine”: courage, determination, teamwork, persistence, integrity, citizenship, justice, commitment, and excellence. Our students are college-bound. They set goals for themselves and are given resources to help them reach those goals.  california distinguished school
