Roosevelt Middle School began a new chapter in its history on August 24, 2012. Our school opened with a total of 700 students from several elementary schools which were consolidated or eliminated grades 6-8. We are currently located in the South Wing of Central High School. Our student body consists of students from Grover Cleveland, Perry, Emerson Gridley, and the former Irving and Glenwood elementary schools.
Our Roosevelt staff consists of 70 employees. We have eight teachers in each grade level from 6-8th grade in the areas of math, language arts, science and social studies. In addition we offer related arts in the areas of music, art, computer and physical education. We offer core academic classes everyday and our related arts are offered on an A/B day schedule. All related arts courses (Computer, Art, Music and Wellness/Fitness) are offered every other day for a semester.
We also house an Honors Academy for grades 7-8 in which students must apply for admission. Traditionally, all students in the honors program are advanced, or proficient on PSSA, received a teacher recommendation, and earned above average grades in their core academic areas. Many of our honors academy students will enroll in our magnet high school Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy. Currently, we have approximately 100 students in our honors program. We do not have honors classes for our 6th grade. Students will be placed into honors classes beginning in 7th grade.
In addition, we offer Learning Support services for all students with an IEP. Students may be included in traditional classes, or may receive services in a smaller classroom setting. All Learning Support services are offered based upon each student's IEP.
As you have read, Roosevelt Middle School offers a variety of programs for all students. We are excited about the upcoming school year and are proud to welcome you to the Rough Rider Family.
