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.

I went to Roosevelt High School for four years and I loved it! The friendly environment made me eager to learn more and push myself to do better. The staff is always helpful and full of resources to encourage you to succeed. The college prep was very beneficial and I was extremely prepared for school to start. There are tons of clubs and organizations that you could be involved with, some faculty led and other student. Sporting events and school sponsored events were something I always attended because they were fun and inviting!
These past 4 years at Roosevelt has been my best by far! I have met so many great students, teachers, and faculty. I have shaped to be the person I am today throughout high school. I love all the involved teachers as well as the resources and extracurriculars. I wouldn’t change a thing, but I want this school to keep improving even after I graduate!
