As a student going to Roosevelt, well it's a great school. The teachers are amazing, the school is beautiful, and everyone has an amazing opportunity through the colleges that are in partnership with the school. From the moment you walk in, college is already spewing about everywhere. However, the kids are all the same and few numbers take advantage of their opportunities. Lately, the district of Yonkers are putting high achievers into not very well talked about schools. I recommend the school to anyone who wants to attend college straight out of highschool, and anyone who wont succumb to the kids.
I am sad to say that this school is coming to an end next year. I graduated from this school in June of 2011 and i must say that in years that i attended the school i noticed dramatic change towards the end of of my High school years. I was disappointed when i heard the news that Early College High School was gonna share the foundation with RHS and heartbroken when they said they were going to replace Roosevelt in 2013. The teachers and staff there were great, many teachers there were geniuses in my opinion. Unfortunately, the students did a horrible job at representing RHS's good side and gave the school a bad name.
Im Actually going to this school, isnt the best but it helps us a lot. and i am latina when i came to this country i didnt know how to speak english, and they put me in ESL classes which helped me so much. Finally i am a Senior.
I went 2 this school for all four years of high school. i must tell the truth it wasnt always the best of times, i was there during its transformation from out of control to a great school. Every student may not appreciate it while there but will love it when its over. It help me alot in the process of becoming the women i am today.
