Inspiring students to DREAM of their future, BELIEVE in themselves, and ACHIEVE their goals

Welcome to Roosevelt School. We are the newest TK-8 school in the district and we are thrilled to have both a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) class on the Roosevelt campus and the first 8th grade class in our school's 63 year history. Grades K-8 offer a Project Based Learning (PBL) curriculum.

PBL focuses on the core academics, with in-depth investigations in social studies and science. Students are challenged to work cooperatively, think critically and present their work in front of an audience. A variety of engagement strategies are used to ensure that all students are focused and participate.
 
Our 2013 Academic Performance Index (API) scores showed a significant gain of 13 points for a score of 801 (passing the state's goal of a score of 800 for all schools). In 2013, the California Department of Education gave Roosevelt school a 9/10 in the API Similar Schools Rank.
 
Congratulations to our hard working students and staff for such a wonderful achievement!
