Roosevelt High School Reviews

I had a great 4 years of high school at Roosevelt. Roosevelt High School has a wide variety of clubs such as Harry Potter, art, video games, anime, guitar, yearbook, and many more! You are guaranteed to find at least one club that you will like, and you will meet a bunch of friendly students. I definitely recommend joining clubs and sports because you will be more engaged and make new friends. I did not learn much information about college in my classes. There were a few times when counselors would give us a presentation about college, but that was all. I learned about college from a program that specializes in preparing kids for college, and from meetings with my counselor. Your counselor will do their absolute best to find the information that you're looking for, and help prepare you for any situation. I have had many great teachers over the years. They're so friendly and kind, and they really do care for their students!

Roosevelt High School is a very diverse place to be in. The teachers are amazing when it comes to working with students! They put time in school and even out of school to make sure the students are understanding the material. Being a senior this year, I would not have wanted to go to a different high school here in Sioux Falls. Roosevelt has given me so many opportunities with sports, academics, volunteer work, interaction with others, and allowing me to be apart of things I never thought I would. The school has changed my life in so many ways.
As a Junior in High School I have experinced many activities and extracurriculas in Roosevlet. Roosevelt High school has an excellent team of teachers. Teachers are not only invested in their students' grades but their overall learning. Roosevelt offers many different classes for every type of learner. I have taken many of the advanced placement classes offered, and I have been impressed by the teachers dedication in preparing students for higher education and life long learning. Outside of class roosevelt has an active student body. I attended volleyball and football games as well as many show choir competitions. In each event I have attended students are encouraging and are excited to support each other. Roosevelt High school has been an amazing school for acedmeics and has helped to prepare me for my future.
