Roosevelt High School Reviews

I've attended Roosevelt High School for the past three and a half years now and has been in varsity choir and theatre programs and taken many AP classes, so I'm often quite busy and caught up with school work. My teachers are very understanding of conflicts and how much I have on my plate, which I'm very grateful for as I have struggled with clinically diagnosed anxiety and bouts of depression since my middle school years. However, the administration and counsellors are much less understanding of mental health struggles among students. It's extremely difficult to get help when it comes to bullying and other issues that are increasingly common among the young population. Roosevelt offers a wide array of after school clubs and treats fine arts with the same respect as the sports teams! The facilities are usually well-kept. Many teachers have flexible tutoring hours and the college and career center is a very helpful and easily accessible resource.

I personally love Roosevelt. The staff and students are welcoming, and willing to help. I have attended Roosevelt for three years now. I'm a three year grad and appreciative of this opportunity to start college sooner. Even if I didn't have this opportunity, I wouldn't mind attending this school for the full four years. I will definitely graduate with some great memories, and great friends as well. There was always someone to turn to with questions about FAFSA and scholarships and even with helping you fill them out. The counselors are the best people to count on, and also the most helpful. There is always so much school spirit when it comes to sports. You should never miss out on the homecoming and pink out games, they will be absolutely be something to remember. The campus is made up of three main buildings. It's not too big, making it easy and convenient to get to your classes on time. Attending Roosevelt would be a great decision, and I highly suggest you do so!
My experience at Roosevelt was overall positive with a few bumps in administration and rules. The magnet programs are very strong especially in the teacher category. I liked the variety of clubs and was very satisfied with after school activities, but the student body always acts very immaturely and has very little respect for janitors and teachers. Luckily upper level courses do not have this problem so if you want to go to Roosevelt to learn and take higher level courses then Roosevelt is a great school. I would like to see some common sense when it comes to new rules, the administration seems very out of touch with the students and more input should come from students as a solution to that.
