Love Roosevelt both of our boys are preschool at Headstart and the other is in first grade the one in first game has special needs and he does very well be mainstreamed into the class ,a little behind but the teacher show so much caring and respect .the front office staff are awesome the principle is beyond belief he knows us by name. The speech teachers awesome reading class is awesome, there's only like three or four kids and Mark and his reading class and whenever he's having a bad day or bad time he can just go hang out with the special ed teacher just have a relaxed time so he's not so overwhelmed I love Roosevelt and speak very very highly of them

My daughter is only in her first year of kindergarten and she loves this school and she likes her teacher and friends. I had to pick her up early for an apt. and she didn't even want to leave school. That's how much she likes this school and kindergarten. I like the activities they do, the jog-a-thon, and other activities i have heard about reading the website.

I am very pleased with Roosevelt. My daughter has not only succeeded, but has felt comfortable and made some great friends.

Will Not leave the school. Teachers & principle have great communication with parents, constantly keeping parents informed. My children are for the most part excited about education, they have the typical 'I'm tired of school' attitude, but, for the most part enjoy it. They all adore the faculty. More help needed on the playground though. Too much inappropriate behavior during recess that the duties cannot always see. I know if I'm going to complain about it I need to be helping. I will always support the school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
