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.
Review Roosevelt High School
This school overwhelmed me sometimes because of its ever-growing student population, but the size doesn't seem to have any affect on the quality of education. With a few rare exceptions, all of my teachers were amazing and encouraging. The school is mostly white, but there are many inclusive clubs that promote diversity, including an active BSU, La Raza, GSA, and many foreign culture clubs. The general assumption is that most students plan to go straight to college, and there is some pressure to take a very rigorous courseload. Overall I deeply appreciated all the opportunities offered here.
Roosevelt is a pretty white privileged school. As someone who came to the States from overseas my sophomore year of high school, it was very hard to break into the Roosevelt bubble. Roosevelt has a fantastic music and drama program, with an orchestra better than many colleges, and with similar high-caliber theater productions. I think that a lot of people who go to Roosevelt do like it, it's just not for everyone.
