Overall, Roosevelt has the best school spirit in the county. No other school can compare. We've dominated in most sports over the past seven years and I believe that the academic requirements of Roose far exceed that of other schools when compared apples to apples. My brother graduated from Roosevelt and I'll be graduating from Roosevelt this year. I've been heavily involved in various activities. There's something for everyone! My principal, Mr. Shands, is the best. The other administrators are a little sketchy. The only issue I've had is with the scheduling. Each year schedule requests are made and every year during the following school year we have to fight to get into classes that we actually requested. I even tried this year to have my schedule changed before school started and still wasn't successful. I will not miss that part.

Prince George’s community college is a pretty great college. I was able to get a scholarship that cut my tuition in half when I registered as a high school. The classes are awesome most of the time and the professors are pretty cool. I don’t feel overloaded with my work and I have a wonderful counselor who’s there to help me when I’m stuck with choosing classes. I’m also a part of the OSSA group, which has really influenced me to get involved with college programs!
My experience in Prince George's County has been better than most. As part of the talented and gifted program throughout primary school and the Science and Technology program during high school, I've had many opportunities to further explore the STEM field including field trips, a PGCC Biology workshop, eCYBER and Science Fair competitions, and most recently, an internship at NIH. However, these wonderful opportunities are hardly available to everyone in Prince George's County. The schools I've attended are the best out of the schools in the county---other schools aren't given nearly as much STEM opportunities as I have had the privilege of having. Recent efforts to expand STEM opportunities have mostly been concentrated around the Science and Technology programs, but I hope that one day students in all schools will have more enrichment opportunities available than they do now.
