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.

As I am finishing up my High School career at Roosevelt High School, I can confidently say that I am qualified to rate my experience there. Over all, the school has provided a safe learning environment, and has helped me grow as an individual.

The school is very liberal, and decently accepting to everyone. Although, Roosevelt is incredibly white, and seriously lacks the diversity its students want. In attempt to mend this separation, we have many diversity assemblies and privilege walks.

Roosevelt has a Teen Health Center fully equipped with nurses and counselors to help students in need. The counselors are okay, but the health services are great.

Average test scores are very high at Roosevelt and there are a ton of ways to get involved with the school and the community due to all of the clubs, band programs, and volunteering opportunities.

No school is perfect, but under the circumstances, I think that Roosevelt High School deserves a 4 star rating.
I personally love Roosevelt High School! The people were great and so were the teachers. Like many people say, it is a public school with a private school education. Loved being part of the sports events and the spirit weeks were so much fun. Most of the teachers are super helpful and want to see you succeed.
