    I really enjoyed my time in RMS. The staff is amazing teachers care and you learn a lot. Students are very together and have high school and academic spirit.

    The hidden gem of middle schools in the SFUSD system. Energized faculty highly-visible principal relatively small size compared to other middle schools in the system good overall academic performance and high participation in school sports and band. Parent involvement is not as strong as I've seen in other schools around the district but improving.

    My kids THRIVED at this school. We moved here late into the year 2009/10 school year. My kids already had the "new kids in school angst" along with the middle school jitters. After 1 week into the school both kids 7th & 8th grade had made quality friendships. The kids also excelled in academics as well as sports and band. The life lessons learned there as well as the academics will get them far in life.

    I think this is a great school. The teachers I have interacted with our commited to excellence inovative and caring. The principle and vice principle are excellent. They also have an excellent IEP coordinator who makes the most of her limited staff. The school is also located in a safe neighborhood.

    This school is the best! I never knew that I would like it here but I do. I'm a 6th grader right now almost attending 7th and I'm having the best year ever. All the teachers are friendly and very smart. I certainly recommend this school. [=

    Roosevelt is the best thing that has happened to my children and I. The school is academically challenging the discipline is pretty much OK -even though not perfect- the staff is a good team of teachers and personnel and the Principal is a super professional that is taking Roosevelt throught the right path he always has a open door policy and cares about what happens in the school.

    Roosevelt is the best school ever don't just take it from me when I first entered at the ice cream social I hated the idea of leaving fifth grade and going there I am an eighth grader graduating this year and I have grown up so much the teachers are caring and everyone cares about you at roosevelt. At roosevelt you discover who you truely are and its where dreams begin.You learn to take flight and no regrets never looking back succeeding in whatever you do in life. I nevr expected to end up loving it here Roosevelt is more than just another school for us to me and my friends its home. You can be whoever and whatever you want to be. everyone opens you with open arms. I learned in sixth grade reach for the moon even if you miss you'll land among the stars. fly with us! (=

    Parents are best suited to rate schools precisely because they have first hand experience. My oldest son graduated from RMS and my youngest son started this year. It is a good school with excellent academic honors classes and caring teachers. It prepares the kids well for high school and I highly recommend it. Don't judge a book by its cover the core of this school is golden.

    Parents shall be responsibly impartial when rating the school where their respective children attend. Let's face it that RMS is not a aa-rated school by all means.
