    Roosevelt School has been an amazing experience for my oldest son who will be entering 2nd grade this coming year. My child was struggling with some areas of work and they stepped in right away and put together a plan with me and gave my son the extra help he needed. This school goes above and beyond for students and the PTA is an amazing organization to be apart of. I attended this school as a young child and I would not think of having my children attend elsewhere. The teachers at Roosevelt are caring and truly love what they do. My son's 1st grade teacher Ms. Marmo came in early twice a week to give my son extra help one on one in the mornings and he loved every minute with her. Roosevelt school has a very good school rating and they have earned it. I am truly blessed to have my son attend a school that can meet all his needs with learning and have a wonderful staff on hand as well. There are not many schools that can provide what Roosevelt can and does everyday. Thank you!

    My son is a handful at home. I was concerned how the teachers would handle his excessive energy. They have been wonderful! He is in the top of his class academically. If he gets antsy they send him out to deliver a 'message.' I have been so impressed at how well he is doing and the high quality of the entire staff.

    May 2006 My child is currently in second grade. I have been very happy with all of her teachers to date as well as the administration. Also the Superintendent and his staff have been working hard to make the town schools better with each passing year.
