With a Title VII Federal Grant and the tremendous effort and contribution of various Ravenswood City School District teachers and administrators, the Spanish-English Dual Language Program for the Ravenswood City School District began in 2001 with two kindergarten classes at Willow Oaks School opening in 2002.
Due to a district restructuring, the program was transferred to the Green Oaks School in 2003 offering kindergarten and first grade. The program continued to grow, adding a grade level each year until it reached the eighth grade.
In 2012, the school became an independent campus located at the shared campus at 2450 Ralmar Avenue, and became a dual language school of choice named Los Robles Magnet Academy.
In August 2018, the school relocated to its own campus at 2033 Pulgas Avenue (the previous Ronald McNair Middle School campus) and was renamed Los Robles-Ronald McNair Academy, serving students from transitional kindergarten to the fifth grade.
