I have been a teacher at Roosevelt Middle School for 20+ years and I can honestly say a 3 out of 10 makes me very very sad to say the least. Roosevelt is completely misunderstood. There are a handful of kids that are problematic like in all schools but the staff is outstanding and goes above and beyond for kids every day. The majority of our kids do the right things and treat others with respect.

Honestly, this school gets a bad reputation it doesent deserve. I am a former student and i will admit this school has problems it needs to iron out, but so do all schools. The teachers and administration that work here actually care about you, and are willing to help you if you ever need help with anything. I had been there for three years and i never saw anything illegal in my whole time there, and the students learn that there is something they can learn from the teachers. This school is just misunderstood, people who have never stepped foot in the school decide that it is a bad place to be.

I think this school has some problems with the student's behaviors. I usually see kids fighting, arguing or calling eachother names in the hallways. I really like some of the teachers. Some taught me so much. I just wish the other people would get along and stop bullying others.

The students are not the best when it comes to their obedience and willfulness to try... As a volunteer for 10+ years, I have seen the patience and care of teachers have for the students. This is 1 of 3 schools that I volunteer at. Roosevelt teachers deserve higher marks then a 2
