Join others who chose Roosevelt

We know that parents of middle schools in Oakland have many choices, and we thank you for exploring Roosevelt.  Here are five reasons why families choose Roosevelt.

  1. Joy - Students are happy at Roosevelt.  Just walk through our hallways and see for yourself!
  2. Community - Students are taught how to build strong communities and how to be community leaders.
  3. Academic challenge - Because we are a personalized learning school, students who are on grade level or advanced are challenged to reach even greater academic heights.
  4. Safety - Suspensions have dropped by 85% in the last eight years and all instances of bullying are resolved immediately.  
  5. Teachers - Roosevelt carefully selects its teachers through a rigorous process to ensure we hire people who are good role models and strong instructors who continually seek to improve their craft.


  • Because we are a public school, there is no tuition for the day program.
  • There are some fees for the after-school program, with scholarships for those who need financial support.
