Roosevelt is a amazing place to be! I know there are many misconceptions about RHS but it is truly a wonderful place to be. There RSA magnet program is truly a gem of a thing. The teachers are very nice and supportive of the students. They have many performing arts programs to choose from. The Dance, Choir & Drama programs are Wonderful! The Voice teacher Mr. Woods makes the choir class fun and exciting to go. He is also very supportive and willing to help the students reach there full potiental. The regular acadmic class teachers are very helpful as well. I feel RHS is one of the best schools in the central valley!

I graduated from Roosevelt School of the Arts and had an awesome experience. I would recommend people try and join the program because it offers so much. I know there are misconceptions about Roosevelt and it is really sad because it is a great school. Many people are going to miss out on the experience, it s not as bad as people make it seem. I felt really safe there. I was learning and having fun the entire time; HS was easy to me because of RSA. I want to thank all the teachers there for all they do, because of you I might have never been accepted into a university. Thanks for pushing me to strive to be better, the dedication and wisdom and thank you for working at Roosevelt even though you were all told how horrible it was! :-) I will always be proud to be a Rough Rider!!

I graduated from the Arts program in 2007 and wouldn't have had it any other way. This was an excellent school that pushed me to succeed. It offers many classes with wonderful teachers. The Arts program allowed me to grow and brought me together with some wonderful people. If you have any reservations about this school; D'ont. The area it's in isn't as bad as it appears. I felt safer on Roosevelts campus than I do anywhere else.

Sure I had reservations about the overall school, but are they worse than any other? Not really. The Roosevelt School of the Arts Magnet Program within Roosevelt High is an incredible program full of teachers extremely dedicated to their craft and the willingness to share their talents so students acheive their dream. This Program has been the highlight of my childs teen years and I wouldn't trade this program for any other out there. The students strive to succeed and without everyone's dedication this Program wouldn't be what it is today. What teenager works so hard for a school to succeed? If your teen has the Arts in their blood look into the many programs that are available to them at Roosevelt School of the Arts. You won't be disappointed.

This was a scary school to go to for me, a white female. I learned a valuable lesson--I got to experience being in the minority; this school is not for the timid

I graduated RHS in 1997 and will always remember the performing arts and mariachi program. This is where I made the best memories in my life. Thanks to the great Teachers and programs I attended CSU Fresno and obtained a bachelor's in Criminology. I no longer live in California but will highly recommend that parents send their children to this high school. Your children will be able to become involved in a great deal of programs whether its sports or performing arts your children will develop a different appreciation for education and set their goals high. Go riders! Alumni of 1997.

There is no place for students to tell you about the programs offered at RHS, so I will have to do it here. I am currently attending Roosevelt and I think it's wonderful. I am in the RSA program and that means that I have access to all the advantages of a magnet school as well as those of the normal high school. Though our academics may not look spectacular on paper, the teachers are wonderful. If a child needs to be challenged more, they will often go outside the curriculum to engage that student in the way they need to be engaged. For example, I am currently taking an Honors Physics class but have decided to take the AP test. Don't let low test scores deter you from placing your child at this school. Their teachers will help them to succeed no matter what.

I went to RSA for 2 years of my time in high school, before I moved away. I loved it. I got to be involved in so many programs that had to do with the arts. It was a very professional experience that will be with me forever.

RSA Roosevelt School of the Arts is the best place for students to dream and make those dreams come true. Parents we need your help, every event is run by the parents of all RSA students. Just ask to help and we'll set you up in the right direction. Parent involvement is as much importance as the teaching. Roosevelt School is more than just a school. Thanks to all staff and the students for their pride in this school.

RSA is a wonderful place for students to not only get a great education, but a place to dream and to make dreams come true. Every student who is a RSA student loves their school and no matter what people say about the quality of it's teachers, programs etc. all will continue to say the same.

i graduated from RHS, class of 2000. i have the best 4 years of my life there. a lot of thanks is to the Health Academy program. it is during my time in there that i see the the reality of life ahead of me. it is from the yeas being in that so wonderful program that i survive my current hardship. we were led on by great teachers who encourage our indepedent by letting us plan our project of our choice. there were so many rejections and failure to accept and deal with in the real world. it finally pays off at the end, when we are accept for who we are. not just a bunch of high school students, but of future doctors and nurses seeking out careers.... i wouldn't change anything bout my high school years...
