I feel that the teachers in the school are willing to help out the ' difficult' children take extra time to get them organized for the class they are teaching. My son is ADHD/ODD and I have never once got a call to come get him or even that he is disruptive ( which) I know he is constantly. I may get a call at the end of the day and ask about his medication or if I could talk to him about his day and poor choices. But over all I am satisfied with the school

This school has a staff who care deeply about middle-school-aged kids even the ones who are difficult to teach or the ones who don't want to be in school. Most--though not all--of the parents are willing to help us do our jobs rather than blame us for their child's difficulties. Roosevelt is a school with a heart and a soul and the dedicated staff necessary to keep its students on a path to success rather than a path to unhappy tragic endings in the streets. Come into our classrooms meet the people who care for your child six and a half hours a day for eight months a year--they are on your side and the side of your child!
I think this school is great for children who do not have problems. They are not willing to help students with problems such as ADHD and other mental issues. They call in the morning for you to pick your child up because the child is making noises in the classroom. I understand the 'good' kids need an education but they refuse to help the other children and put them into specialized classrooms.
