Roosevelt School provides a well balanced educational experience based on quality core and co-curricular opportunities, taught by highly qualified staff. Within our teaching staff, 61.5% of them have their Master’s Degree and 59% have been teaching for more than 10 years. We are committed to continuous improvement in our school and have taken a “What Ever It Takes” stance in meeting the educational and social needs of our diverse population. Our common core philosophy is based on a belief that is not about our teaching, rather it is about our students learning.

This philosophy asks and acts on 4 key questions:
What is it we expect students to learn and do?
How do we know that they have learned it?
How will we respond when some students don’t learn?
How will we respond when some students already knew it?
