Roosevelt is a school that has lots of things going on. To read about our school's achievements, please go to our School Successes page.
Our students come from all over the Milwaukee area. Many come specifically for the arts provided in our curriculum. All come because of our superb academic program.
Our staff understands the unique needs of the middle school child, work in teams on integrated curriculum and participate in the arts mission of the school.
Roosevelt is organized around a team or unit approach. That means that your child will have the teachers in their team for the basic academic classess of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Teams work together to prepare enriching curriculum reinforced in each other's classrooms.
