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!
I have been enrolled in Prince George’s Co. Public schools since kindergarten. The school system offers a wide array of resources to achieve excellence. The teachers are well educated and do a great job at educating the students. What I have learned throughout the years has adequately prepared me for college and beyond. My academic excellence has afforded me the opportunity to travel abroad with other high achieving students throughout the nation. Overall, the culture of the schools I have attended has been good. The students are diverse which gives me the chance to engage with students of different ethnicities. These experiences have encouraged my growth and development in culture sensitivity.
