My daughter has been at this school for the past two years and I can honestly say that I am very satisfied with the education she is receiving. The teachers are knowledgable in their subject area and all seem to care about the students. I think that Roosevelt has one of the top music programs in Hawaii which is why my daughter wanted to come to this school.

I think Roosevelt does a great job dealing with it's wide range of students. From those who just moved to America and are still in English learning programs(ESLL) to AP and honor students who want to be challenged. All students are provided for under Roosevelt's curriculum. Only hardworking and determined teachers are teach AP and honor courses. The biggest downfall is that non-honor and AP courses are heterogeneous at Roosevelt. (ESLL students are enrolled in them.) Subsequently, teachers tend to make the curriculum easy and students aren't challenged enough. Roosevelt has an OUTSTANDING band program, and involved clubs and organizations including PAAC, Leo Club, Red Cross, Key Club, Korean Club, Christian Club, Math team, and many more. One of the best characteristics of Roosevelt is it's cultural diversity and it's commitment to providing an education for all students.

I was very satisfied with the education I received from Roosevelt. I participated in the music program, athletics, and took advantage of higher level academic courses. Majority of the teachers were great and I felt as though my high school education equipped me for college as I am now pursuing my academic goals in an out of state school. The one downside that I would have to express though, is the quality of facilities. Although I was able to use the renovated auditorium and the new field, the individual classrooms in which we are used daily should be given more attention.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Hawaii used the Hawaii State Assessment (HSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in reading and math. The HSA is a standards-based test that measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Hawaii. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
