Teachers within a grade level are night and day different in what they teach and how it is taught.

Amount of homework: Don't know

Homework within the same grades varies. Teachers are not on the same page when it comes to doing the same work.

Roosa elementary has great potential but due to the lack of poor administration the school suffers. The principle (Abshere) is involved more in the gossip of the school than running the school. There is a different set of standards depending on who you are and how you fit into the administration. Special needs children are left out to dry and do not get the full attention they deserve. Class sizes are large and unmanageable.

I appreciate Roosa Elementary's commitment to excellence. Both students and teachers work diligently to exceed expectations. Students are expected to learn a character trait every month, along with a quote that supports the trait. Stop any student in the hall and they will be able to converse with you with academic vocabulary and respect. Teachers and staff go way beyond what you would expect from a public school. They spend hours preparing for each student's needs. They attend professional development. They keep the grounds beautifully. I am proud to work with this team. I'd like to say thank you to the parents. They are committed and involved!

I am a parent of three girls. My two oldest have 'graduated' from Roosa. My youngest is presently attending. I find that the teachers take their job very seriously by giving my children the best education possible. Roosa is also a Great Expectations Model school.

I have had children at Roosa for two years. The teachers are good and fair, the administration, not so much. If you have a child with special needs, this is not the place to go.
