Great community that includes all! Excellent teachers and support staff!
Because it is a great school in a wonderful community - it's a real gem! go Hornets!!!!
Seriously, it is the only jewel and jamm in the immediate neighborhoods close to East Oakland. Roosevelt deserves all the help and support it can get to keep it a crowning jewel!
Responsive teachers and steadily increasing APIs. Stimulating classroom environments and good, inclusive politics.
It is a vibrant school always encouraging all to do their very best, led by a dynamic principal!
Roosevelt has the most welcoming, community feeling that I've ever seen at a public elementary school. Everyone is always willing to help. The teachers, principal, and support staff are all highly commited, kind and caring professionals. We love Roosevelt.
Teachers keep me inform every year via phone and email on my kids' progress w/ tips and online programs for additional learning; The principal is AWESOME and very involved in the day to day dealings with the kids form k-5, safety and discipline is reinforced with the participation of parents
Awesome teachers, great parent base/involvement, wonderful music program. We have been very happy here.
This school is incredible. The climate is so encouraging and open and the teachers are clearly constantly trying to better their practices. The teachers participate in trainings with full enthusiasm and self evaluate constantly to be sure they are offering all they can to the students in their classes. The community of the school is tight and accepting. This is an incredible place to be.
We moved from the San Leandro district fifteen months ago and we were sad and concerned whether our two children would achieve as well in another district. We were surprised to find our children,who were both high achievers at Roosevelt, had been left behind.They had fallen behind in math, never even touching the times tables. Social studies barely surfaced. Although spelling and reading were adequate. We felt the energy spent on money raising and donating could have been better spent in the classroom.We felt intimidated if we did not donate money almost every week.
It is a pretty good public elementary school. They are always looking for ways to improve the facility and the principal is very involved in the daily activities of the classrooms and outside yard.
Roosevelt is a wondeful neighborhood school that after a series of principals the last five years has a great energetic principal that works hard and believes in the students and families. Teachers seem to like to stay in the school for many years - often many until they retire. They too are committed and easy to work with. The families that are drawn to this community are active, educated and caring parents. The mix of students is diverse and helps all students learn to work and play with a variety of ethnic and socio-economic groups. While our kids are now in high school, we still have fond memories and support the school however we can. We continue to encourage families to move into the community and send their kids to the K-5 school option.
Both of my children currently attend Roosevelt and are extremely happy there. The teachers are able to teach to many different levels and challenge the children who need advanced material. The principal is wonderful. She knows all of the children by name and truely cares about their education and happiness. Parent participation at the school is outstanding. There is a very active PTA as well as a Dad's Club.
The highest rated school in San Leandro but the scores are not so great. The school could do better.
This public school has art and music classes that are given for 50 minutes once a week to all 1-5 grade students. The academic focus is primarily on reaching a minimum standard goal for all students. The level of parental involvement is quite high. The PTA and Dad's Club are active and provide both labor and capital to the school.
I have had two boy attend roosevelt, and both had a great experience. Excellent teachers, appropriate curriculum, and wonderful schoolyard for the kids.
Good neighborhood elementary school with history of good leadership and quality teachers. Diverse school with a lot of parent participation.
