Roosevelt is a great school with many supporting teachers and great students , I really enjoy this school and appreciate all the hard work that all the teachers/staff are doing.


Posted October 8, 2013

Im a student there this is thru my eyes what I see is that if you want your kid to learn then dont take them here home schoolings better most kids disrespect the teachers I always have homework because we never get to finish in class because some people its not like 2 or 4 its half the class theres also bullying of both genders yes brands matter in that school and Mr.sanchez always says "theres no bullying and if your being bullied tell me" I was bullied and told him guess what he did? nothing he let the kid off with the warning even though I told him that it wasnt the first time and I ended up getting a refferal from a teacher for defending my self from what the kid said even though he started the whole thing so if your a student you have no rights if your kid isnt in honors classes guess what he gets? Those books with writing all over them and if your in the honors classes you get the newest everything in my elective we dont have books so our teacher had to make us read it from the projector because the school dosnt care about us or what we need the school is realy clean but if your a student you have no rights there

My son went to Roosevelt last year and although there was some bullying issues, we appreciated the school's attempt to stop most of it. Overall, he had a wonderful experience during his two years at Roosevelt and loved his band teacher, Mr. Underwood (great teacher!!).

The vice principal get a high mark in my book. Thank you, for taking an initiative in stopping the bullying toward my grand-daughter. Mrs. D. Guice

No administration and staff communication!

Roosevelt has many great teachers and clubs available to our children, but we need some kind of tolerance class to teach our kids respect and self-esteem. Many of our students I see on campus and hear them talking to their friends seem to be lost and need some guidance.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
