We recently relocated from the east coast and our son started first grade at Roosevelt. I don't think we would have never found a better school. His teacher Ms. Fors is a top notch teacher. Having taught special education for nine years and now teaching mainstream 1st grade she quickly found our son to be ADD. During his first few weeks of school he was disruptive in class and required one on one teaching. After being tested by a local pediatrician our son was diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. He was put on medication and the difference has been astounding! He now excels in school and we were told that we should have him tested for the gifted program. The principal Mrs. Michelle Olsen is also wonderful. We have gotten to know her personally as well as professionally. She has shown that she has our child's best interests at heart. We were very skeptical of this school when we saw a School Rating of 5 but given our experience we can't help but to give this school a 10.

This school has a few good teachers and the rest are rude and have been known to be yellers and screamers year after year and they need to be gone . As a parent have never felt welcome there ! If your child has a I.E.P. they will just get more and more behind..
My family move to Port Angeles this summer after spending the last 9yrs in Alaska. Our youngest who is in 2nd grade had been in the same Elementary school that her older brothers had attended where she knew the staff her whole life. We worried about the transition to not only a new school but a much larger school where she knew no one. But from registration when she was met by the principal and shown around she (as well as I) was made to feel right at home. We couldn't be happier with her teacher who not only teaches but truly seems to love what she is doing and each of her students the office staff who are so helpful and friendly and the principal who takes the time to know each of the students names and he is so proud of the school and does so much personally for the students. The amount of family involvement amazed us along with all of the other teachers staff parents students and busdrivers. Our daughter is happy and doing very well.
My children have gone to this school for 3 years now (one year when it was fairview). I have always found the staff to be supportive and helpful. My children enjoy school there and I am happy to have them going to such a good school.
Outstanding staff supportive parents and community. My kids enjoy going to school everyday.
this school is the worst i ever seen just ignorant with no regard for students or parents
