This school is great if you are into the sports side of education, but it is very sadly lacking when it comes to the arts. If you are not an athlete, this school has practically nothing to offer you. The quality of the Drama department, for example, is sad. The plays are never serious classics. They tend to be things like Zombeo and Juliet (a comical zombie adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tragedy "Romeo and Juliet"). The stage is not built right. I even question if it is tilted like a stage should be. The acoustics in the theater are also sadly nonexistent. Not to mention that the chairs are set up in a way that you can see right into the wings from the audience. It's built like a movie theater, not a theatrical stage. This is just one example of the quality of the arts at Roosevelt.

Great School, love the faculty and everything they have to offer my child

While it's only a few weeks into his first year at RHS, what a great experience my son (15) is having there. Through a difficult time (divorce and cross country re-location), RHS is his third school in two years. The staff (teachers and admin) are >>happy people<<, live in the (small) community nearby and have gone out of their way to welcome him and get him involved. At the Football game last week, I was impressed to see participation from a large marching band, a lot of student volunteers and a great community turn-out...at a 9-12 school with only 500 students total! This small school also produced Colorado's 3A State Champion baseball team in 2006...and has a long heritage of achievements in sports. Wish I'd gone to RHS when I was a kid. If you can manage the commute (roughly 30 minutes drive to major employers)...you'll love Johnstown and RHS.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
