Our School

Our 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 2019-2020 school year include: a) Supporting the implementation of SFUSD"s Middle School redesign by ensuring that all students experience deeper learning through project based learning and AVID teaching strategies. b) Strengthen our school wide behavioral systems of support to ensure common practices across classrooms. and c) Closing the achievement gap for our African American students.
