Roosevelt Elementary School has a caring and responsive staff and teachers. The teachers strive for excellence and work with the parents and the students towards this goal. I am extremely happy with the education provided by this group of fine teachers and expect even better things as we approach another school year! Keep up the great work!

Unfortunately, the prevailing problem throughout this district seems to be lack of parent involvement in anything other than fundraisers (and even that is sparce at best). I was extremely disappointed in the assembly-line approach to teaching children. If anyone has a child that doesn't necessarily learn the way the rest of the class does, don't expect too much from the school by way of special attention. This school also falls behind as far as curriculum is concerned (compared to other well-ranked Camden County Schools). I can not in good conscience give my endorsement to this institution.

I have 1 child in Roosevelt School. I'm very happy with the help she gets from her special education teacher. Her improvement in reading is just amazing.

Roosevelt Elementary has too many students and not enough teachers. Most of the classes are overcrowded and it's difficult for children to get a quality education. The expectations are high, yet there is a lack of resources to achieve the goals they strive for. With regard to discipline, the staff tends to blame, frequently suspend, and retain students instead of finding creative alternatives for different learning styles. There is little accountability on the teachers to provide a quality education and partner with parents for improved performance. There is also a lack of diversity in their staff. They employ very few males or teachers of color, yet over 40% of the student body is children of color. Some of the good things include an active PTA, access to computers, and art classes.
