Roosevelt school is an amazing school but people who don't attend or have kids that attend wouldn't no when i first moved to the area i was like omg this school is gonna be a bad i didn't think my 2 daughters would excel in her studies i thought like everyone else its a school in the ghetto the teachers probably don't even care about the kids boy was i wrong Roosevelt is a great school im so glad that my daughters got a chance to be Roosevelt rangers. the teachers, the principle are amazing.my kids have learned so much attending Roosevelt. they do so much for the kids & parents they help us see that our kids are amazing & can be anything they set there minds to. i believe Roosevelt should win the $5000 i no in my heart that they will use that money to better our kids future i always here people say that the Bridgeport school district is not good well im a proud parent of a Bridgeport school. i think Roosevelt should win and take the kids on a school trip not just any trip im talking about the Bronx zoo it would be there 1st trip since there original school was demolished lets give the rangers a push to show them with education anything is possible.school is cool.

there should be more feild trips the 7th grade only went on 1 trip this year and i think that is very erong because the kids are always stuck in school. The children should be able to pick there classes like the specials they should be able to have a study hall room and what is wrong with the libary. the gym is so plan you sold let the kids paint the walls of the gym and put there finger prints and write there names and they would allways remember that they ddi that to the gym. they sholud also hueey up with puting up the curtain sthe state looks slopy. and the cafe food should be more tasty because the children don't like the food they should also ahve vending machines in the hall way and in the cafeteria. there should also be a bigger playground.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CMT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
