Roosevelt is an amazing school with incredible, dedicated and responsive teachers who teach to the child, not the test, and an administration and staff whose dedication to the school is similarly amazing. The sense of community is remarkable and it's been a magical elementary experience. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity for our kids to attend Roosevelt!

What's great about Roosevelt Elementary School and the new Common Core Curriculum is that the administration and teachers have been teaching this way for many years. With the PTA support and the amazing motivated staff they already have CGI (cognitively guided instruction) and Columbia's Teachers College readers and writers workshop training. It is all about deep thinking!! It's all about great teaching!

Teaches children creativity, teamwork, and problem solving in a diverse, real world setting. Children here get the foundation for success in today's world. Teachers work very hard and treat every child as an individual. The administration is responsive to all.

Having read the two negative comments about Roosevelt this month, I can only assume the parents (if they really are parents at the school) had a beef with someone or something. I cannot imagine how a school in a lovely part of Santa Monica, which just got the highest API score in the district (and one of the highest in California) and whose PTA raises hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, can possibly be honestly described as in a bad neigborhood, with poor leadership and teachers, and little parent invovlment. I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time. Roosevelt is always oversubscribed so perhaps it's not a bad thing that the grumpy parents have left, as this will free up space for those who will appreciate what Roosevelt has to offer.

Not currently our school but I just had to come back here to say, "watch out". When you find a school you would like your children to attend, ask around the neighborhood about it. Look around...do you really want your child to live here! Go on a tour of the school, meet the teachers and principal. Notice I didn't capitalize principal...because the principal of Roosevelt from 2011 doesn't deserve it. Teacher quality is poor. Principal leadership is poor and she was actually fired from another school, then moved to Roosevelt. Parent involvement is poor because the teachers don't want the help! We moved to another school in the same district but up the coast a little ways. We went on a tour of the new school, we looked around for a more suitable environment/home for our children and we asked around the neighborhoods about the schools. We have never been happier! For your children's sake (especially if you have children with special needs), please take the time to find the right school! Now, I'm going to go and give complimentary comments to the new schools our children attend!

Roosevelt is a really good community school that manages to be warm and inclusive with a very large and diverse student body. Are all the teacher great? No, but some of the best teachers you'll ever meet are here. It seems that some people have had problems with the administration--that has not been my experience. They've been very helpful and supportive when we needed it. We're very happy to have found this school and this community.

Some parents joke that at Roosevelt it's "No child left behind AND no child gets ahead," meaning the teachers make painstaking efforts to help the slower students to catch up with the rest of the class while leaving the advanced ones alone, knowing they'll be "fine" on their own. This is more pathetically true than funny! The review on 9/2/12 said "The teacher outright refused to help challenge my child, who was ahead of the curriculum", it hits home with me. Routinely each school year the new teacher will ask parents to fill out a detailed questionnaire on your child to help her better understand and work with your child. I truthfully described my child's ability in reading as entering 1st grade this year she was able to read children's chapter books particularly many by Roald Dahl, thinking this would help teacher know her and challenge her accordingly. Little did I know I've actually placed my child in disadvantage with this info and hurt her chance of getting the attention and push she needs. Another mom I know said her child (another class) who was ahead as well was usually left alone in class and feeling bored because the teacher simply let her be as she didn't need "help."

I have 2 children at Roosevelt and a third who has graduated. Our family has had an incredible experience at this school. The teachers are passionate and very well trained, the administration is engaged and caring and the parent community is low key and involved. My children are all 3 very different learners, but they have each been able to thrive at this community school. Roosevelt certainly has challenges due to its size (almost 800 students) and the State budget cuts, but the administration and parent leaders have helped the school navigate these difficult times.

The parent involvement at Roosevelt is good, compared with other schools, but it also depends on your child's classroom. Roosevelt is a HUGE school. There are now 7 kindergarten classrooms and we're up to 26-28 kids per class. Budget cuts are really hurting us, so there's a lot of pressure on us parents to cough up the requested $825 per family fee from the get go. Be forewarned, the principal will ALWAYS stick up for the teachers and justify their actions, I've seen and heard this from LOTS of other parents who have locked heads with her big time, absent you having proof. It's just the way it is. My kid's experience last year was bad in many ways, to the point where we were almost going to go the private school route. The teacher outright refused to help challenge my child, who was ahead of the curriculum and was frustrated most of the year. Teacher was rude and treated me like I was a 5 year old. There's more to this. Hopefully this year will be a much better one- this teacher seems to have a much better attitude and genuinely seems to want to be a teacher for all the right reasons. Now only if we can get past the budget cutbacks!

I don't know where to begin when reviewing Roosevelt Elementary. The only reason I give it two stars is for my love for Mrs. Handleman of Kindergarten and Mrs. Garcia of second grade... They are amazing. I am basing my review on the school in general. My daughter has gone there for 4 years and will no longer be attending(thank goodness!). The lack of communication with the principal/vice principal and the parents is uncalled for. There is a major bullying issue at Roosevelt and the school fails to address the issue. They make statements that say they are a no bully tolerating school but this is not the case. I could give you a dozen examples but I will give one for now. My daughter was being bullied at the playground(hardly any supervision on the Roosevelt playground and when a child tries to get help, they tell them not to tattle). She had a rock thrown at her head one day and insisted on going to the nurses office for help. They not only failed to call me, but the following week(after my daughter went to the ER for dizziness that evening), the principal's excuse was that there were too many kids with my daughters name and they couldn't find my number! Are you kidding? Also, the

Such an amazing school. I feel very fortunate that my children have been able to attend Roosevelt. My oldest just finished middle school with a 4.0 for 3 years and received one of the school's highest marks on the district writing test. My second child is still at Roosevelt doing extremely well with two fabulous teachers. Roosevelt offers co-teaching so one teacher can concentrate on English and History while another can concentrate on Math and Science. Great prep for middle school!

I went on a tour of this school, meeting 5 Kindergarten teachers and observing some of their class time. What I witnessed for the most part, were bad tempered, impatient teachers using punitive methods. Three of the 5 teachers fit this category. The other two were engaged with their class, kind, friendly and seemed to be getting good results. 40% good, 60% very poor. And this was them on their "best behavior" !!


Posted June 27, 2012

Both my children went through Roosevelt, the younger of the two has just graduated. While the old principal, Jerry Harris, was by far a more involved and accessible administrator, the current principal is still very good. All their teachers were caring professionals, the facilities are excellent for an older public school. the parents raise a good deal of money for libraries, music educations, smart boards and the like and the community truly supports the program. They both did well their and my son has gone on to Honors/AP classes at SaMo and is doing quite well, so I give Roosevelt credit for staring his education in a most positive way. If I had to do it again, I would send them to Roosevelt in a heartbeat.

I have had a poor experience with this school. Only a handful of the teachers are caring. The principle is rude and condescending. The facility is old and very poorly maintained. Nothing to be excited about in this school.

I have been very disappointed in Roosevelt and the whole SMMUSD. The principal basically stays behind locked doors. The Vice Principal is condescending. And the teachers are downright mean and manipulative. My child's mental health and difficult times meant nothing to them. My requests for changes were repeatedly denied.

Roosevelt is an incredible school. Our child is absolutely thriving here. The teachers are top notch. The parent community is involved and supportive. The school has tremendous resources even in light of state cuts. Roosevelt is as good as it gets.

We love Roosevelt. Our son has just started kindergarten and he is so happy here. We are well informed with what is going on with his education and the teachers are fantastic. i am amazed with what he has already been learning and how much thought and preparation goes into the curriculum. We couldn't be happier!

They have the most wonderful, caring teachers. Great parent involvement in every aspect of the school and everyone works together to make this school one of the very best. My daughter spent all her 6 years of elementary school at Roosevelt and she's a straight A honor student because of the great teachers that put her on the right path at Roosevelt! Now I have twin boys at Roosevelt who just started at Kindergarten and they love to go to school and love their teachers! It's a wonderful learning and caring institution.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
