What I loved the most about Roosevelt High School is the diverse community that I belong in. Each day, I felt valued of who I am. I was able to express myself to the fullest in which I took pride and embrace who I was. Roosevelt is the most diverse high school in Oregon which is important because everyone is all supportive of each other. Considering this, I loved going to school events such as basketball games and football games. I always had a fun time watching the games as they would get lit! Winning the other team was the best feeling given that I was just part of the crowd. In addition, to me the teachers were the best. They supported and assisted me in everyday possible to assure that I succeeded in class. I can't thank them enough for teaching me new things and gain different perspectives. As a graduating senior, I will truly miss my time at Roosevelt as it has changed who I am today. #VeltUp

Teachers and staff are very nice! They make an effort to help any student that is interested in help. Great opportunity with beginning band, upper bands were good. Sports were fun and inexpensive. Academics are spotty. I think public schools tend to push them through if they try at all. Private school this year revealed big holes. :(...even though honor roll at RHS.
Investing into the diverse community that I live in has been the best experience yet. Not only have I been able to represent Roosevelt High School but the whole city of Portland as well.
It was already super helpful that Roosevelt has always been student-led and community based so getting into organizations such as the Associated Student Body and Leadership was going to go smoothly. Through organizations such as those, I was able to learn each and every step in order to host a successful event that caters to everyone. This is essential as I am now able to apply these techniques to my everyday life at school and when we plan for events. By committing to helping my school and community from the first year, I was able to gain networks in which have helped me and many others throughout our senior year. Most of our senior year was based on protesting and demanding that our voices be heard.
