Roosevelt is an amazing school. My kids have thrived there. The teachers are dedicated to make sure every child succeeds. I love Roosevelt's diversity. My children have made friends with kids from all around the world. They not only provide a top notch education, but have a huge variety of after school activities. I would recommend Roosevelt to anyone moving in the neighborhood.
Roosevelt is an amazing school. The principal, Mrs. Oakley, is dedicated to the teachers and children. She is hands on and always willing to assist. The teachers are caring and professional. The parent teacher group (PTG) is stong and active. They have a diverse student body that makes the classroom vibrant and true to life. I have volunteered at events and in the classroom and am so happy our daughter can attend Roosevelt. She has made great strides in academics and made many fun friends as well.
When we first moved into our neighborhood, 10 years ago, we had heard mixed reviews about Roosevelt. Just as the neighborhoods Roosevelt pulls from have transitioned , so has this school! We could not be happier with our choice to send our children here! The teachers and staff are AMAZING and there is a sense of community that is hard to beat! Roosevelt does such a wonderful job of reaching all of its students, not only ion an academic level, but through the vast amount of extracurricular activities it has to offer as well . They are very culturally minded and have a wonderful partnership with the MAC (Museum of Arts and Culture) that enriches the lives of the students and their families. Roosevelt has students from all walks of life, but I believe that is why it is such a special place. Through this diversity, my children have learned compassion, and I can't think of a better attribute to have .
We only gone through Kindergarden here. Mrs Sullivan is the most incredible teacher. She is one of those people who have something positive to say about anyone. She always has a smile. Thanks to her our daughter had a very positive experience in her first year of public school.
A teacher at the school told a 3rd grade student that was already homeless that when he grew up, he would never have a job or a home. The principal is never available and does not address parent's concerns.
