School Reviews

  • Recommended November 04, 2007 - The academic programs at Roosenelt are coming along. The availabilty of the at the school seems fair, art is coming along, and extracurricular activities are good. The level of parent involment is high because of such harsh treatment at the school. The fact that kids are being deprived of their education by being locked out of their classrooms, and being sent to ISS is unacceptable. And the facilities need a little more work done to them. - Posted by Teacher
