    We know that parents of middle schools in Oakland have many choices, and we thank you for exploring Roosevelt.  Here are six 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. Leadership - The Roosevelt principal is the most senior principal of the 13 OUSD middle schools; one of the most experienced of all middle schools in Oakland, district and charter.
    6. 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 afterschool program, with scholarships for those who need financial support.
