Overall our daughters have thrived at a Roosevelt. Ms Mercer is a welcome addition and I expect big things to come from this school in the years to come.
I have loved out time at Roosevelt. It is a school of choice for us and I never regretted making that choice. My daughter has felt comfortable, nurtured and enthusiastic in her first couple years here. She loves her teachers. The parents and student community is great and connecting to each other. I am confident in her long term future at Roosevelt and her ability to learn what she needs to learn, while not having unnecessary added pressure. With PBL she is able to take that learning in different directions that keep her engaged through the lessons. There is also a great PTA always working to build the community. We love Roosevelt!
In the 3 years we've been at Roosevelt, we have been very happy with the school and the PBL program. The students learn while answering a "burning question" about whatever topic they are studying, which allows them to dig deeper into subjects they are most interested in. What I like best is that they are learning how to learn-- researching and asking questions from the beginning, building skills I wasn't taught until high school. I'll never forget when my son came home from 1st grade and showed me how to to a Brain Storm-- and I told him I had done the same thing at work that day! I also really love the community in the school. There is a great group of parents that are really invested in doing what they can to fund raise and bring in more programs and Principle Mercer has been removing any road block to help. The school garden has really blossomed over the last few years and on-site after school options extracurricular options have expanded this year to include chess, Spanish and coding. We look forward to many more years at Roosevelt!
We love Roosevelt and are very happy with the teachers and curriculum.
