Discover This School

The vision of Roosevelt Middle School is that all children will grow emotionally and academically in a safe, respectful, and supportive environment, and that all children will begin to realize their potential. Roosevelt Middle School, a historic landmark building opened in 1930, has evolved to embrace multiple learning styles and offer diverse, inclusive academic opportunities. All students, including those identified as gifted, inclusion, resource specialist and learning disabled, are provided a stimulating and challenging learning experience. Core groups provide specialized focus for English Language Learners in academic content areas.

Teachers provide opportunities for students to engage in groups as well as individually, and to take responsibility for themselves and their peers. Our teachers promote joyful learning and achievement through communications, respect, and engaging learning activities, such as collaborative posters, gallery walks labs, and others. Strategic classes and tutoring both during the school day and after school provide opportunities for students to maximize their proficiency in literacy and math. Our mission is to enable students to become independent, critical thinkers as well as productive, concerned, and engaged citizens. Expectations of our students are high. We give feedback and communicate regularly with student and families about attendance, grades, concerns, and progress. We recognize students' achievements and provide recognition.
