Roosevelt is still a neighborhood school. Longevity among the teaching staff is one of its strengths. Many great events are held for students, such as Teddy Roosevelt's birthday in October and an entire month (March) dedicated to reading! Monthy movie nights, a huge back to school corn roast and spring carnival are just a few of the wonderful family-oriented activities that take place during the school year. Being a Title I School, many activities also take place to bring parents, students and staff together in the hopes of improving math and reading scores. Kids like going to school at ROOSEVELT!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
