Website Hamlin Robinson School

The mission of Hamlin Robinson School (HRS) is to ignite the academic and creative potential of students with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences. Since its founding in 1983, HRS stands as the only school in the state of Washington exclusively serving the unique academic and social/emotional needs of students with dyslexia. It is our vision for students who struggle in traditional settings to experience the classroom as a welcoming and safe place for learning.

Hamlin Robinson School has been at the forefront of serving students with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences for almost 40 years. Our purpose is to fill an unaddressed gap in the K-12 education system failing to adequately address the learning needs of up to 20% of the student population; those with dyslexia and unexplained reading challenges.

Our program is in high demand because of our reputation and record of success with students who learn differently, and our specially trained faculty who teach students accordingly. HRS utilizes the most effective known method of whole-class literacy instruction, which is a comprehensive, multi-sensory approach adaptive to the full curriculum of the school. Most importantly, students learn in the way suiting their needs. For many, HRS is the first place they experience success, confidence, pride, and a sense of belonging in school.

Hamlin Robinson School values diversity and welcomes the unique contributions of people from all backgrounds regardless of ethnicity/race, gender, socio-economic status, learning style, physical ability, religion, sexual orientation, and any other aspect of their identity. Please view our Equity Statement and full Non-Discrimination Policy on the HRS homepage.
