I feel like this question is unfair. Just like kids, there are good and bad ones.

District 170 as a whole caters to kids and parents who couldn't care less about education and they routinely take the path of least resistance. My child knows how to dance "The Whip" and "The Nay Nay" but not how to multiply? Unacceptable!

Roosevelt is a very good school, my kids loved it my wife and I loved it. The principal is very involve, the teachers are awesome. My kids had high honor each year they attended Roosevelt. So for all those negative comment for the school, I want to say that its not the school that's bad. Is the student that participate. Maybe as a parent you should be more involve with your kids activities.

This school doesn't support children with special needs. I have two children who has special needs. Its not evident of their disability visually. We have been bullied and disrespected at for 10 years by principal and assistant principle. Please if you have special needs kids don't leave them in the hands of Roosevelt. They don't care for parent involvement only only when they want you around. This school is nice nasty. Zero rating.

The children were ridiculous at the school. They harassed and bullied. They had major home life problems. Besides that, the teachers were great!

My child has attended Roosevelt School for four years now, starting in second grade. Maybe he isn't the smartest kid in the bunch, but he has been helped along tremendously by after school tutoring, small reading groups and special teachers who work with him specifically. Without this help, I don't know where he would be today. I love it when he comes home and is excited to tell me about what he learned that day. The day he graduates from Roosevelt and goes on to high school will be a proud day for us!

Roosevelt School is the best school my children have attended. The PBIS behavior program has motivated my children and they love going to school everyday. The teachers, principals, and staff are #1.

Roosevelt School does not provide a high quality education. My child did not receive instruction in geography or social studies. Roosevelt did not have a Science Fair for students to participate in. There is no Great Books Club so that students may study the classics. The teachers seem to be unqualified and uncaring. The work they provided was too easy for my child. They did not require the students to use higher order thinking skills.

I feel that Roosevelt School is an excellent school where as the enviroment is concern. The school today, is alot different from when I was there. The teachers were more attentive to the children needs. The parents were more concerned. They need to hire more teacher assistants to help with the children. 20 kids to 1 teacher is not fair for the teacher or to the students. How can a child learn if there are children who don't want to learn and their parents are not there to support them. I also send my child to learn not to fight. I feel the tolerance in that school is crazy. The trouble makers that provoke the good ones to fight should be put into a classroom by themselves. Not kick out. All this is doing is teaching our children to be drop outs.

From what my child has come home saying there needs to be a lot more done about the teachers there. No one is supervising them. There is no care for the kids. So, what is going in this school I have pulled my child from this school. My child should not be hearing teachers gossip in the hallways about things that should not be talked about in front of children.
