I enjoyed that there is a huge community from different backgrounds to support you throughout many hardships that one might go through as well through the good times that one also goes through.
MSTMA is a school for growth and empowerment. Starting high school was tough as there was a lot of uncertainty and fear of change. The unity in our staff made this transition smoother for my class. All the staff are on the same page and primarily execute the same goals: to prepare us for higher education and build our confidence in having control of our academics. There are numerous opportunities for every student and different routes one can take depending on their end goal. New resources were introduced every year that expanded our network of support which aided our academic and personal struggles. The only thing I would change about MSTMA is the number of AP classes available during school hours. Although they provide sufficient support and knowledge in applying to college classes before and after school. Overall, this is the school for a student who wants to identify their passions, engage in their academics, grow as a student, and as a becoming adult.
What I like about MSTMA is that there are so many opportunities open to all students and that the teachers never give up on you. From my experience, many of the teachers were very understanding and considerate of students' lives and struggles. I just wish to have more music classes open to those who are interested.
I enjoy my time at the school, I get to learn a lot. I would recommend the school to friends and family because I believe it is a great school that can prepare you for the future. Something I would like to change about the school would be to focus on individual needs. People have hard times in the city Roosevelt is in, and school can be stressful at times.
I am currently a junior at MSTMA and I love the sense of community there. When I first entered I didn't have many friends and the school was very supportive and made the transition into high school so much easier. The teachers are also very helpful and always make time for office hours for students to ask questions. I also think that because many of the teachers assign projects, this gives students an opportunity to collaborate with others and learn more about what it's like to work with a team. Overall, MSTMA is a very openminded and community based school that accepts all their students and makes sure they succeed in their goals.
This school is extremely encouraging for students to succeed in the future. All the teachers look forward to helping their students learn. The staff is very nice and helpful in the office. The coffee with the principal has engaged several parents to learn about their student's academics and see changes in the school with their help. Not only are the teachers and staff incredible at their work but they keep the school safe for everyone to learn. This year in 2020, MSTMA created a welcoming community potluck where all the students at each grade level brought food and games as a stress-free day for everyone to enjoy. The only change I would like to see is having more money to put into trips for the students, different game equipment, money for better equipment in class such as chemistry and biology and different extracurricular classes.
What made me love MSTMA was that the teachers are really passionate about their work. They not only did a great job in teaching us but they taught us lessons on how to be great people. I was able to create a strong relationship with them, and the counselors as well. The counselors truly cared about us being college ready, they even had celebrations for the seniors who got into college. It was an experience I will never forget.
I love how the students interact with their teachers. I have met many teachers that have inspired me and have changed the person I am. The people here have helped me become a better person. Not only that, but their academics are very good too. They offer many AP courses and college courses. I am very grateful that I have been able to take college level courses. Taking these courses have prepared me for college and for what’s to come. There sports teams are also very good. I love being able to go to a school that has a lot of school spirit for teams. Attending football games makes me happy because I am able to interact with my friends and classmates. The culture that the school has makes me feel at home and like I belong there. There are many students like me thay are Latinos. Being able to go to a school where students are like you and with the same dreams of being first generation going to college inspires me to do great and to be a good person.
I love my school MSTMA because the teacher and staff are always super supportive and understanding, they always make sure we understand their class and are overall super good educators.
This school is very good but I feel like they can help more prep students for the SAT especially for Juniors. Also, be more equality with all students.
Counselors really care about you going to a good college and provide a lot of aid. Every class feels like home. Teachers are all very open minded.
MSTMA at Roosevelt HS is amazing because we are very close as a community. We are all there to support one another and make sure that we all graduate and follow our path toward college. MSTMA is a place where you can very much be yourself and be prepared for a successful future.
The school is great! There is lots of stress since it’s a Magnet, but it’s an amazing experience. The school is small which mean she the you can easily communicate with your teachers. You bond with your classmates and it feels like you have a separate family!
I guess you can say I've had the average/basic high school experience so far. I've seen drama, students stressing about homework and their grades (aka me), gone to the sports games, etc. I am in the magnet program there, which is more strict than the main campus. The teachers there can be supportive, strict, basically a pain in the butt but I know that they are pushing us to have a brighter future. The students will be students. The school itself like the buildings and stuff are old but they will be remodeling it soon. Overall this high school isn't bad but I'm just saying it in my point of view.
Math, Science, & Technology Magnet Academy at Roosevelt High School is like a second home. I spend half of my time in school. The teachers are always there to help you in whatever you need.
I am a current student at this school and I feel that it really does prepare you for college. The teachers all care about your education and they are all wonderful. Even after school there are still kids because almost all the teachers have tutoring and almost every kid is involved in a club or activity. Something that I hate/love is the attitude at this school. They constantly push you to do your best and to always do everything. They encourage advanced classes, college courses, activities, internships and joining clubs all while keeping straight A's and it is a bit overwhelming and stressing. Many students are constantly stressed whether about projects, schoolwork, etc. The good thing is that teachers understand and they will always be glad to lend you a helping hand and are even a bit lenient with some assignments/people if they see that it is too much. I honestly love this school
MSTMA has excellent teaches and personal, who ensure how to support students in academics and in their personal enrichment.
