To the former student who asserts that Roosevelt has a 76% COLLEGE dropout rate: Where are you getting your statistics from? I haven't been able to find out any info on Roosevelt alumni college dropout rates. Are you referring instead to the percentage of Roosevelt students who drop out of Roosevelt? According to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) the overall percentage of kids who dropped out of Roosevelt was approximately 11.5% as of 2011 (the last year for which stats are available). They offer no stats on DATA or ETA because their numbers are folded in with Roosevelt's numbers. As someone who is considering sending two of my kids to either DATA or ETA I would love to know where you are getting your information from so that I can do my own follow up research.


Posted May 6, 2013

I was a student at Roosevelt high school for 4 years, and I have to say the in ETA at least is friendly. The band program is fun, they don't care about competitions, but they have fun, and thats what its all about. The ETA Program has outstanding teachers, all of which are very dedicated to their students, in trying to help them succeed. However outside of ETA the quality of the School drops off the side of a cliff. Gangs, Bullying, Drugs just to name a few problems. However being in The ETA Program Limits interaction with General Population to a bare minimum. So if your in the ETA Program it's a good school, however if your in DATA or regular. Well get out while you can. Collage Dropout Rates - Roosevelt Regular 76% - Data 52% - ETA 3 %

We just moved to this area and my son hasn't even started at the school. Went to orientation day and was already bullied. I don't plan on keeping him at this school.

I had heard many bad things about Roosevelt before my children started attending. I thought I was in the Madison HS district (it's much closer to my house), but, it turns out that we are on the "wrong side of the tracks", apparently so my kids go to Roosevelt. The school wasn't quite as bad as I had heard, but it isn't good either. There is no school spirit, TONS of drama, low parent involvement, and plenty of lazy, "I'm just here for the check" teachers. There ARE some very good teachers there. They aren't all bad. But I would say half of the ones I have interacted with are incompetent. The other problem (which I'm sure affects the teachers' willingness) is that these kids are SO disrespectful!! It's ridiculous. The "few bad apples" are rotting the whole bunch as time goes on. The discipline is not consistent and the kids are allowed to get away with way too much. I don't have first-hand knowledge about the magnet program. I've heard some good things about it, but I honestly could not in good conscience, recommend this school to anyone.

I was a student at Roosevelt high school for 2 years, and I have to say the population here is friendly, and it all seems like a big family. The band program, despite being not great, is fun. They don't care about competitions, but they have fun, and thats what its all about. The ETA Program has outstanding teachers, and all of the teachers are very dedicated to their students, in trying to help them suceed. There are a few bad apples, but what school doesn't have any?

personally i think its unfair to the students who work really hard for their education that have to go to this so called school the neglagence of the staff has created a welcome mat for bad apples (to put it lightly) to over come the entire school and make it very hard for the ones who are trying to have a future other than a welfare check i wonder why this school isnt college recognized hmmm i think they should separate districts a lil better two oppisite sides of the fence here going to the same school is a recipe for disaster please explain why the wool is to tightly pulled over our eyes about this school....... anyone

i personally think that reagan high school is the better choice, we are rated exemplary, and the teachers and parents are very involved in each student. our band program is amazing, as with every other sport and activity. the number of pre-ap and ap classes that we have is amazing.

I'm a freshman here at Roosevelt and I am perfect because I have just stepped foot in HS and in Roosevelt and can tell what I've noticed and heared. There's two really awesome magnet programs here one called ETA and DATA which is the one I'm in. DATA is the more rigorous and higher program but ETA is up there too. Together they bring in smart and kind kids from all over San Antonio and really diversify TR's (Theodore Roosevelt) population. There are a few deliquints here and there is a kinda big dropout number but the campus is new and there are so many extra-ciricullar activities and organizations. Most teachers are dedicated to students. The drop out # and all the fights, graphitti have been really low and there's barley any at all now. TR is widly improving and getting better prepared for post HS education.

some of the people are a bit wild and loud, but you can't get a good education with no discrimination throughout your school any where else and there are many diverse students

I'm doing my Third year of This school and I find it a great school. Even if Roosevelt has a few bad apples, But over all I like Roosevelt and its better then when it is my Freshman year, Even if it has a Semi-bad rep it not everyone fault.

This is a great school. My youngest child is a current student. My older chilldren graduated from this school. It has changed a great deal over the years. The changes are good. Overall, the teachers are great, but all it takes is a few bad apples and Roosevelt has a few. Not as many as they use to so it is getting better. Parent involvement is lacking. It appears that fundraising, teacher appreciation, etc. is the main reason that parents are needed. There are various committees that need parent reps but in the past they were generally filled with teachers that are parents. There are plenty of involved parents, they are just not on campus. Fundraising gets old. The athletic staff is much better. They expect more of their athletes (behavior & academic). Engineering magnet program is great. I hear good thing about the DATA magnet but no personal experience.

This was my son's freshman year at Roosevelt and I must say that I was disappointed. There is a big lack of faculty involvement on that campus. To think that our kids spend the majority of their day at school the lack of supervision is concerning. The experiences I had showed that there were minimum controls in the classrooms. I must say that times have really changed in the schools.

Roosevelt has great teachers willing to help any student in need. The curriculum is sometimes difficult but if you try you will succeed. ROOSEVELT is a great school if your trying to have a good future.

I've just finished my freshman year at Roosevelt and in my opinion it is a wonderful school especially if you get involved with one of the many extra curricular activities they offer.

After going to Roosevelt for almost 2 years, I have to say that my experience there was about 95% great overall. Most of the people that go there have a naturaly friendliness and are always laughing. Yes there are a few exceptions to that, but any school you go to will have something similar. Most of the teachers genuinely care about your acadmeic and personal life and their main goal is not only to get you to graduate, but to get you to college. The pre-ap/ ap courses are very challenging, but push you to better. I love the GT program at Roosevelt- you really get a good intellectual stimulation. Although Roosevelt has had a dark past, I truely believe that it looks nothing like it's future. The new prinicpal has done an amazing job of stirring Roosevelt in the right direction. I will always have Rough Rider Pride! Go TR!

I graduated from this school last year.. I loved it ,especially better than judson high school..Here at Roosevelt they helped me get my credit to graduate with my class and i was a year behind.. The counselors and teachers are all wonderful.. I had a lot of friends there and its getting bigger and much nicer.. I think if you go there you'd really like it. As far as it being dangerous, never that school..

I graduated from this HS...it was okay.. It is not big enough for all the students they have there, there always a huge line at lunch and crowded hallways.

When I went to Roosevelt 3 yrs ago there were a lot of bad things happening and a lot parents wouldn't believe that happened at any school BUT I have a brother that goes there now and there are still several problems that are occur but maybe not as much on-campus just in the parking lot or in the street next to the campus. If you aren't in the wrong place or by the wrong crowd you 'should' be fine. Has good teachers and lot of potential if behavior problems can 'ever' be fixed. New Building looks good. I can go on about the negatives but there are many positive things the school has about it also.

My sons attend the engineering magnet program at Roosevelt which is not our neighborhood high school. Although it means an extra commute during the school year, it has been well worth it. They love Roosevelt and are receiving an excellent education. There are many opportunities for student involvement and some very competent teachers. Students from all over the district come for its two magnet programs and I think will help change the overall climate of the school, in conjunction with the new high school construction and revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.

We are a military family and have lived many places. Never have my children encountered such pessimism from teachers or open hostility from other students. Administrators turn a blind eye to persistent misbehavior and are privately pessimistic about things getting better. There are admittedly a few teachers who go above and beyond to insure their students success line but overall, I'd give the school a D+.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
