  • I MEAN ROOSEVELT IS COOL ITS JUST THE TEACHERS N THE SECURITY OFFICERS. FOR ONE THE SECURITY OFFICERS DO TO MUCH THEY TRY TO MAKE A BIG DEAL OVER THE LITTLE THINGS. THEN THE TEACHERS ARE NO BETTER. THEY GET ATTITUDE TO MUCH AND THEY GET TO TALK TO US LIKE WE CRAZY BUT WHEN IT COMES TO US WE HAVE TO BE QUIT AND IT IS NIT FAR. THEN THE DISCIPLINARIAN JUST DO TOO TOO MUCH I MEAN I UNDERSTAND THAT WE BE ACTING A FOOL SOMETIMES BUT WE GET SUSPENDED TO LONG FOR SOMETHING THAT'S SO SMALL FOR EXAMPLE I GOT SUSPENDED FOR 15 DAYS BECAUSE IT WAS A FIGHT AND I WAS STANDING THERE. THE WHOLE SCHOOL WAS RIGHT THERE BUT THEY JUST PICKED ME OUT OF THE CROWD. ITS JUST SOME THINGS THAT THAT SCHOOL NEED TO WORK O. THEN THE UNIFORMS IS RIDICULOUS. IM JUST TIRED OF ROOSEVELT

  • Well I'm currently a senior at Roosevelt and yes we do have to wear uniforms what the big deal. The problems is the students they dont want change and they dont want to adapt to a good learning environment. Istead they want to continue to not follow the rules. Uniforms, teachers,hoodies,etc. is not the issue adapting to a change, following rules and becoming a better student/person in life is the issue not Roosevelt. I love my school and I'm going to graduate knowing that I tried to do my part reguardless of everyone and their decissions.

  • Roosevelt was never the best school but it was my school. I had fun there met some good people and the teachers I had did their best to give me the best education they could. Every teacher I had smiled when I and the rest of the students walked in. The principal is a good person who was trying to make the school better. Their rules did seem weird. I never understood why you would punish a uniform violation. But all in all I will always have Roosevelt pride.

  • First of all, you have to wear a uniform, which goes against the 1st Amendment for freedom of speech, next you can't wear hoodies in the building, even if it were freezing in there, you have a limited time to get to your next class, or risk getting locked out, and having to go to ISS, which is depriving students of their education(most teachers I know at the school hate the policy). I hate the fact that the teachers at the school get to bring cellphones, and curse at us when we can't do either of those things. I hate the fact that girls can't wear short skirts even(IF) they have leggings or stockings under them! To make the uniform issue even worse, we have to tuck our shirts in, and be policed around the school if we refuse to, we either get suspended or sent to ISS.I hate the fact that if boys sag, they get suspended. I mean come on it's not that serious. Then the administration seems to have no sense of humor and take everything seriously. There are just so many things that they have to change about the school. everything that I listed should be changed. It seems like they trust absolutely no one at this school. And if the school is now taken over by the state where the heck are the air conditioners didn't they want to make the school better. It seems like it has gotten worse with all of the new rules and such, kids want to just leave the school.
