I think it is a wonderful school. And that it also has GREAT academic arts classes. I think its a very good school for my daughter to go to.

I don't care for the organization of this school. First day of school was awful I registered my children during registration and on the first day of school we had to wait an hour to get a classroom assignment. Not to mention the staff losing my children paperwork. I had to bring in proof of address health and birth records 3 times! There is no school nurse but one of the local hospitals has a clinic in the school but apparently the nurse doesn't work everyday WTH?
I am now graduated but I went to Roosevelt Magnet School from grade K-8. Personally i would never send my children to this school. Yes I will admit that this school has a very good and city-involved fine arts program but it really doesn't excel in academics as a result of it. There are far better more academically focused schools in the Peoria area. But as Fine Arts go way to go Roosevelt Magnet!
roosevelt isn't everything it's made out to be. i would know. i went there form 1-8 grade. it was just like a normal school. just with more arts classes.
I'm a parent of 2 children at roosevelt and I'm a very involved parent and I love the teachers the staff and Mrs. Jenkins always eager to help I was new to the area this year and they opened their arms and made me my husband and most importantly my kids very welcome.Way to go Roosevelt.
My daughter has gone to Roosevelt Magnet School since pre-K. She is now in the 5th grade. Since attending she has been involved in advanced arts dance choir orchestra and on the honor every year. She was offered a spot in the local gifted school but I preffered for her to stay at Roosevelt Magnet because I'm very satisfied with her being there.
