Needs more diversity but has great school spirit and academics! During my time here, I have met some of the most inspirational adults and fellow students I could have imagined. Roosevelt really does its best to make students feel welcome and encourage students to continue on the path of education.

RHS is a very white school, and the people there often forget about the privilege that they have in contrast to a lot of the other kids in the district. This leads to rather stuck-up attitudes of a lot of the people that go there. However this isn’t forgetting about the diversity (however small it is) that is there, and the ways in which they are making themselves seen.

On the academic side if things, RHS has a terrible chemistry department and a fantastic jazz band. Judging the school as a whole, is hard though, because all of the teachers and staff members are different.
It was an okay experience. The only reason why I botched 1 star is because of how school shows no diversity. Freshman to junior year was not diverse at all. Different cliques and depending on their racial colors. The education is great! But it's why this year as a senior, I am the diversity coordinator and it is my job to being that star to 5 stars by involving more diversity. And I'm willing to make this school a better place and I hope that someone will take the same steps I am going to take to make diversity great at Roosevelt High School.
