12 Parent Reviews for Roosevelt Senior High School

Roosevelt High School is a hidden gem in South Minneapolis that is sadly overlooked by many families as a viable option for high school. We have one child who has experienced two fantastic years here and we did not hesitate to choose Roosevelt for our second child as well. To the contrary of what another ...  Read more

This school was great 4 years ago when my son attended. The staff was happy and the teachers and principal worked well together. Two years ago the District (in their typically great wisdom) decided to 'improve' the school by replacing the principal. The new principal decided that more rules = more education. ...  Read more

The principal will not talk to parents, some classes are way too large, some are tiny. The students have no rules enforced and academics suffer.

This school deserves to have a better reputation. The teachers are top notch, admistration does an amazing job of working with limited resources and, as an aside, it's always clean. It's a great atmosphere where learning is emphasized.
