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.

At Roosevelt High School I felt appreciated as a student. I enjoyed the smaller class sizes so I was able to interact with teachers and instructors. Every professor I had conversations with regarding my academic success were not only helpful and understanding. I had the pleasure of being a part of Roosevelt's orchestra, where I've been able to open up to other students and have had the ability to flourish creatively. However, I've also been able to explore the STEM program at Roosevelt, having been apart of an engineering class where I had the opportunity to visit Microsoft headquarters. This trip was very inspirational to me because we had the opportunity to see various engineering projects, which sparked my interest in a future in STEM in a way that I've never experienced before.
Though Roosevelt is known throughout Seattle as the challenging, rigorous school, that colleges view fondly, this school has a dark side. With nearly one student dying every year from suicide, and astronomical anxiety/depression rates, this takes a toll on the student body. Yes, we have more and more 4.0 students every year, but with little to no socio-economical diversity (upper middle class white teens), and so stressful an environment, you should think long hard whether or not it's worth it
