History of Robinson CLC

Robinson Community Learning Center is named in honor of Henry Robinson, a banker, civic leader and pioneer manufacturer of clay products, as well as one of the original benefactors of Akron City Hospital. The original school building was built in 1912.  It was remodeled several times, and additional land was later purchased to enlarge the playground.  The school was closed in 1979, but reopened in 1980.  The groundbreaking for the new Robinson CLC building took place on March 2, 2007. The dedication ceremony was held on September 4, 2008 and classes started in new building on August 27, 2008.
