As a student at roosevelt middle school i am very disappointed..dont get me wrong, the teachers are wonderful (if your on their good side) absolutley wonderful but i feel like there is a numerous amount of children who are 'acedemically challenged' and because there is a lot of them, teachers aren't used to children who are acedemically advanced (like me). To me the work i have to do is fairly simple, i have very rarely any homework (if i do its mostly coloring or work that needs to be made up, mind you i am in 7th grade). The work for me is easy as well, the only problem that i have is it isnt challenging and its very easy to get off track, also the teachers teach so slow. I believe i could skip a grade if they taught faster.

The friendliest staff and very welcoming. That being said, it is a great place to substitute because teachers are prepared and very willing to help! Great teamwork among teachers and the best models of co-teaching I have seen. Teachers have genuine care for the students.

Although the school used to be 6-8, when it moved into the old Sacred Heart building, it became a 7-8 school. It is horrible! My daughter went there for both grades. Se went in as an honor student. She came out barely passing. Students get no support in academics or otherwise. My daughter was jumped by two girls in the cafeteria one day because the school is not safe! My other children will not go there. Luckily, we'll be at Jefferson from now on.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Pennsylvania used the Pennsylvania System of State Assessments (PSSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in math and reading, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The PSSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Pennsylvania. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
