I don't care for the organization of this school. First day of school was awful, I registered my children during registration and on the first day of school we had to wait an hour to get a classroom assignment. Not to mention the staff losing my children paperwork. I had to bring in proof of address, health and birth records 3 times! There is no school nurse but one of the local hospitals has a clinic in the school but apparently the nurse doesn't work everyday, WTH?
I am now graduated, but I went to Roosevelt Magnet School from grade K-8. Personally, i would never send my children to this school. Yes, I will admit that this school has a very good and city-involved fine arts program, but it really doesn't excel in academics as a result of it. There are far better, more academically focused schools in the Peoria area. But as Fine Arts go, way to go Roosevelt Magnet!
I'm a parent of 2 children at roosevelt and I'm a very involved parent and I love the teachers the staff and Mrs. Jenkins always eager to help I was new to the area this year and they opened their arms and made me,my husband and most importantly my kids very welcome.Way to go Roosevelt.
