    Teachers at Chantilly High School: Teachers are generally knowledgeable, but they lack the passion that helps students feel more motivated to learn. I have met some incredibly intelligent teachers who are unable to teach! They have the information, but not the skills. Other teachers make it very clear that they just want to make a living, not inspire kids. I did not feel motivated to succeed because I struggled with staying engaged in so many of my classes.

    Overall Experience at Robinson Secondary School: The quality of education is really good thanks to it being an AP/IB secondary school. A few teachers are very qualified to teach high level classes, and they do a good job at it.

    Teachers at Robinson Secondary School: I've had a pretty good blend of both good and bad teachers during my time at Robinson. Some of them didn't have a lot of drive, which resulted in those classes being boring. Some teachers just talked for most of the class and we didn't get prepared for standardized tests as well as we probably should have. But the teachers that were good were really good. They were easy to ask for help and they had a lot of good stuff on the study guides they provided.
