Roosevelt High School is a metropolitan high school in Chicago, Illinois. The demographics of the school are diverse. There are currently 33 languages being spoken at RHS, with a range of ESL learners needing limited support in English language to brand-new American immigrants with no English facility. This makes for an interesting and challenging learning community for all concerned. As with many schools in the United States, RHS enjoys a staff of administrators and teachers who are highly motivated and dedicated. The leadership is open and willing to accept constructive criticism, and work within the Chicago Public Schools policies and procedures to implement positive change. I would highly recommend Roosevelt High School for consideration as a recipient of your $5,000 grant.
the days when i went to RHS it was a school with gang issues all thru out my high school era, but once i got out and joined the military my younger siblings attended the school and im proud to say that RHS is one of the best schools in Chicago for its robotics and extracurricular activities. Learning wise i learned alot in that school i have many mentors i admire this day from RHS thanking them for making an impact in my life i loved Band for RHS was a grade A musical school in my times. im sure the school needs to wipe out any remaining bad influences because overall the school is gets the job done which is teach, mentor and coach.Roosevelt Rough Riders!
Well, I have seen Roosevelt High School for more than two years as a student. When I first joined RHS, it was one of the worst schools that I could have ever thought of going. Within two years, the School has improved a great deal. Now I'm glad to be a graduated of RHS as I would soon become one of the best schools in the City of Chicago. This year the College Board has started a new program with Roosevelt. RHS is an Excellarator School and not a regular school anymore. The improvement was readily seen when Harvard University visited Roosevelt High School to start a New Program for incoming Freshmans. Roosevelt was the only school that Harvard visited in Chicago. Moreover, RHS ranked third in the Midwest Robotics compitition last year and was the only School to qualify to go to Atlanta for Nationwide Competition from Chicago.
