Roosevelt High School Reviews
This school has a lot of academic opportunities for students as well as a wide variety of groups to get involved in. Most of the teachers are excellent, and the extracurriculars are very fun. The music and drama departments are very large and well funded, but the visual arts program is small in comparison. Students have access to great resources such as the Teen Health Center, which serves as a miniature doctor's office. However, the school is still working on making sure upperclassmen are welcoming to freshmen, and there have been some instances of racist behavior from students.
I liked my time there overall, but I think there were definitely some things that could've been better. I feel like I learned a lot at Roosevelt, however I think it's because I put in the work. There is an incredible amount of homework from most classes, and since the school is so full, teachers often don't have time to help each student individually if they're having trouble with the class. My peers there were diverse in their interests but not in their backgrounds, which formed a lot of cliques. This made my social experience at Roosevelt bad. Sports at RHS were always mediocre, but the school excelled at music and arts.
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.
