At Roosevelt Middle School we believe it is vital for our students to measurably develop academic, social, and personal skills necessary to be a successful productive citizen. We believe it is critical for students, their family, and school staff members to collaborate in this process.
Roosevelt Middle School fosters pride and empowers students to become leaders within their school and community. A number of co-curricular activities are available for students. Organized and competitive athletic programs for 7th and 8th grade students are provided in several areas including, volleyball, football, soccer, tennis, basketball, wrestling, swimming, and track and cross country. There are also several different enrichment opportunities for students as well. Some of these include Lego League PACT Program, Book Club, Kirkwood Literacy Fair, and Women in Science conference. Roosevelt Middle School also has a top notch fine arts program, and a show choir called Regeneration. Roosevelt offers several academic and athletic intramural activities that focus on student interests and change from year to year.
Goals of the Roosevelt Parent Teacher Association (PTA) are to promote, through educational opportunities and activities, community building through a sense of belonging among students, parents, and staff. The PTA serves as a communication link between home and school. PTA supports staff and student activities, such as student dances. Roosevelt also has a community partnership with Quaker Oats and Matthew 25.
Roosevelt was built on the site of the old Alamo Amusement Park. It served as a 7-12 building from 1935-1958, at which time Jefferson High School opened.
