Terrible teachers and school atmosphere for students to spend key years of their lives in. There is no effort to integrate students who are new to the community and staff is partially weak in diversity training.

A struggle. If your kid doesn't need a teacher - just a place to socialize and get good grades than it's probably an alright school. And yes, we did discuss switching schools but friends were important so we're sticking it out for now.

Our experience has been very positive and we feel fortunate to have such a great school in the neighborhood.

I was very disappointed with this school and ultimately took my child out of it. The counselor was overloaded. Kids would skip school but just roam the halls. If you are a high achiever, Roosevelt might be fine but if your child stuggles do NOT enroll him or her in this school.

My daughters have both found Roosevelt to be very welcoming and the academic environment is excellent. I went to a challenging public high school and felt over-prepared for the UW. After just her freshman year, my daughter could have been successful in UW classes--doing work at a level I didn't do until my junior and senior years in high school. I've never encountered an LA teacher anywhere who is as extraordinary as Mr. Masaoka. Physical Science, French, Biology, Photography, Math, Business--so many excellent teachers, I can't name them all here. My only complaint is that there is a crushing amount of homework at times, but last year the teachers made an effort to avoid homework over the breaks so kids could spend time with friends and family. I can't understand why a parent would pay for a private school if they are in the Roosevelt district? The school is big enough to have a wide array of diverse clubs and activities including nationally recognized band and drama. You really can't beat it.
