Discover This School

Set in a historic building in the Richmond neighborhood, Roosevelt Middle School maintains high expectations and standards for all learners. The staff and community work collaboratively to ensure that students are provided with rigorous and meaningful learning experiences in their classrooms, in extracurricular activities and in a number of special school-wide events.

Our vision is that all students will grow emotionally, socially, and academically within a safe, respectful and supportive environment. Students will be inspired to become successful, technologically literate and globally minded, as our staff prepares them to participate as socially responsible citizens in the 21st century world.

Our mission is to enable students to become independent critical thinkers, as well as productive, concerned, and engaged citizens. We will prepare students to achieve proficient or advanced status on the state's assessment tests and enter high school academically prepared.

Key priorities for the 2017-2018 school year include:

a) the continued development and implementation of the Common Core curriculum (English, mathematics and science) with a focus on student centered learning that supports and facilitates access to the curriculum for every student;
b) The integration of technology in classrooms through our VILS iPad grant, and development of 21st Century teaching pedagogy throughout the building;
c) The development and expansion of a Dual Language Chinese Immersion Program;
d) A focus on narrowing the achievement gap for targeted groups of students;
e) The continued development of the RTI Framework (behavioral and academic) and RP to support students and promote a positive school climate;
f) THe development of AVID supported teaching practices that help students develop critical thinking skills, become more organized, and promote a college and career mindset.

This school is fed by:

Chinese Immersion School, Cobb ES, McCoppin ES, New Traditions ES, Peabody ES, Sutro ES
