    Its a great school with great students and teachers.but the bad nuts are destroying the good foundation of the school

    I am sad to say that this school is coming to an end next year. I graduated from this school in June of 2011 and i must say that in years that i attended the school i noticed dramatic change towards the end of of my High school years. I was disappointed when i heard the news that Early College High School was gonna share the foundation with RHS and heartbroken when they said they were going to replace Roosevelt in 2013. The teachers and staff there were great many teachers there were geniuses in my opinion. Unfortunately the students did a horrible job at representing RHS's good side and gave the school a bad name.

    I went 2 this school for all four years of high school. i must tell the truth it wasnt always the best of times i was there during its transformation from out of control to a great school. Every student may not appreciate it while there but will love it when its over. It help me alot in the process of becoming the women i am today.

    I was a student there and its not good.The teachers are good but the kids are what make the school look bad. The books are old and not enough supplies.

    This school is very big! There is alot of security at this school. There are signs everyware. Your child will find it very adjustable. All of the teachers are very nice. I liked it.

    At first I was concerned about Roosevelt's reputation but after understanding the magnet system my child fit perfectly into the television production magnet. He could not be any happier.
