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.

Ive got to say coming from a student RHS (roosevelt high school) that while the staff may be welcoming the school itself is terrible i HIGHLY dislike the people there and the school is set up TERRIBLEY i would rather do online school than spend another minute at rhs (coming from a very social person). Not to mention how the class system is set up and on an even less cared for but still mentionable note they dont even support workers permits there!!! overall i enjoy the staff as mentioned but besides the staff everything at rhs is TERRIBLE!!!!!!

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.
