This is school is overcrowded, the teachers are overwhelmed. The only good thing about this school is the principalm but other than that this is a poor quality school. I am a former student as is most of the people in my family. I was so glad when my sister decided to transfer my niece to another school

I am very pleased with this school. my brother, sister and I use to attend this school we recently moved to North Bergen and the school system is very different,I find that the Union City district is better The schools in North Bergen dont even contain computers and the pincipals are much more friendly in Roosevelt Mr. Polinik was great with the students and the Teachers are great too especially 6,7,8 grade teachers and I like the fact they have alot of extracurricular activities like boys and girls basketball team,cheerleading squad,computer club,student council,yearbook commitee,peer meadiation...etc I also like that when its getting close to the end of the year the whole school has a field trip to Roosevelt Stadium and they have a field day I wish more schools in other areas were like this. Thanks for the consideration -Former Student

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
