I graduated from Roosevelt in 1947 when it was a Jr. High School, grades 7 through10. It was an excellent school then. 4 athletic sports all four years including tackle football. We had an excellent music program, both instramental and vocal. The campus was immaculate because we had gardening classes. It was a beautiful campus. We received and excellent education and were well prepare for the future. It is not like that today, It is a terrible dhame. WHAT HAPPENED? WHY!!!

Roosevelt Middle School is an excellent school. I won't argue that their are some problems in the school, like their are problems in any other school. But if you send your children to this school, you will not regret it. I just happened to Graduate this year, I will miss all the caring teachers, and life time friends I've met. Go Lions!

Many people agree with me when I say that this is the best school in Compton! For the people that disagree, the only think they have to do is research the school more. This school has been MESA National Champions for 2 years running and we are going for the third. Also I am a current Roosevelt Middle School student and if it weren't for those excellent teachers then I wouldn't of had been accpeted to CAMS, which is in the top percentage of High Schools in the state.

This school has been nothing but a head ache. We've had problems with my childs work habits, and the faculty wait until he is failing before they notify me. I've asked for help, and none is available. They do not seem to care, or want to help.

Roosevelt is a great place to teach. The principal is very nurturing and genuinely cares about her staff and students. Parents could be more involved. The staff is very helpful and always smiling. I think students in general need to take more pride in their education, but those values start at home.

I think it's the best middle school in Compton, they set the standards high for the students & hold them to it as far and the uniform policy, academic's & following the rules. I see a staff that really cares about the kids and is working well with what they were given to work with. They have an very good music program but like all schools in Compton need better equiptment and they try to keep the parent in the loop of everything.

Not enough teachers. Class sizes are bursting at the seams. No discipline at all. Students walk around, talk and are very disrespectful. My neice attended this school for 3 years and left with very little additional knowledge.

Roosevelt Middle School is one of the best schools that Compton Unified School District contains. With its excellent leadership and marvelous extracurricular programs, Roosevelt Middle School will help your child reach beyond their goals, as it has helped myself and countless others. In my opinion, Roosevelt Middle is a radiant school, although several parents, staff members, and even students already know that. Academic Excellence, No Excuses is our famous motto which all students take pride in. Our motto means that all Roosevelt s students shouldn t give up or put excuses towards their education. We all know that education is very important and we shouldn t give up, but here at Roosevelt, every one motivates each other and tries as much as possible to make learning fun and exciting, which is the exact thing that the staff members do. Roosevelt is a fantastic school which everyone has an enthusiastic education among different races.

I really think this school has high achievers. The principal keeps her students in order. As you can see, Roosevelt has many extracurricular activities. They have all kinds of sports. I would recommend that if you live in Compton, send your children to Roosevelt Middle School.
