By Richard Harris, community volunteer & president of Friends of Roosevelt
If you were a resident of UpTown prior to 2000, or if you have a business attuned to local school reputations, you sadly may recall hearing comments about Roosevelt’s weak academic history and problems with gang and drug activity.
Today, if you talk with parents of students who are attending or matriculated from Roosevelt, you will hear a completely different story. Read more about the immense strides made at Roosevelt, thanks to the school’s dedicated teachers, staff, parents and our community.
You can also come see the improvements yourself by joining a campus tour any Friday at 9:00 am. Visit sandi.net/Roosevelt to sign up. Or attend our RoosaPalooza concert on January 16th at 7:00 pm. Download the flyer to learn more about the event.
