Phenomenal staff! Caring, truly child-centered, and authentic. It really is a different school than the one we knew. The efforts being made are heartfelt and promising--and inspired my child to earn A's & B's. Thank ypu, Roosevelt Middle School!

Now that I'm in high school, I figure I can review the school I went to for middle school. Yeah, uh, its not that good.... like most schools in Philadelphia. If you aren't black or Spanish, you get bullied beyond belief. The white principal, is scared of the black kids, and yeah, he doesn't punish them, they run the school, kids cut all the time and nobody cares. The teachers, the white ones who actually want the kids to learn, I feel so bad for them. They suffer major abuse from the kids. They Are getting called crackers and honkies everyday. The food is fine I guess but not enough to save the school. The school is in poor condition. The cops, they are all African American and hang out with the bad kids, it's just a bad school.
It's going to be a bit hard to review the school, but I'll try, first of all the only piece of security in the entire school is one police officer. I know it sounds fine but he is a rookie in training. Also, the teachers, they threat the kids to check the camera if there is a problem, but uh, there's just one problem THEY KEEP THE LENS ON The kids aren't as stupid and gullible as you think. The teachers, they obviously did not become licensed teachers. I have reason to believe the teachers here are not actual college graduates. Tell me, what kind of teachers don't know what the word " Counterfeit" means , yeah, there's that. When I went here, they didn't know and now my brother is asking what these words mean and they don't know. And the food is TERRIBLE! I can't even tell you how many times i got sick because of the food , and the cafeteria workers, are the worst, this one guy who works here, he wasn't there when I went there, has been swearing at my brother, who is in third grade, I am ready to smack this guy,Ms August, a lunch lady, grips the kids up, which is illegal, and says " I'm telling the principal" she smacked me in the neck once, the principal is ignorant and has no idea how to run the school. The nurse, oh, the nurse , if you get into a fight, or get hurt, she will give you a ice pack....HOW IS THAT GONNA HELP? She doesn't care about the safety of the kids, and is just looking for a paycheck, like every other teacher here. The school is in poor condition, and seriously needs to be repaired, dog feces in the grass by the school, and the janitor, where the hell are you? and the school is also sexist, clearly preferring girls, as they get defended for everything. Also, the school is mainly black, so bullying will be towards white kids. THE worst thing is the BULLYING! The teachers, the lunch ladies, even the principal, are clearly scared of the black parents, saying they don't care about bullying, they tell the kids to man up, I'm bleeding, and I get punished for getting jumped, after I get a ice pack of course. I went to the school from K to 5, so 2006- 2012 I think. Well, hopefully , I made my point. Don't go to this school, IT'S FOR YOUR CHILD'S SAFETY!
I went to school here in 1988 and 89 The teachers there was very abusive. They used to slap and punch us in head. I had a very bad experience going to school at this place.
This has been the most horrifying disappointing experience!!!!!. No stars for staff instruction leadership or anything else. Not only are the children bullys, but as we know they must learn it from somewhere. They learn it from the staff. Kids coming home stressing about "punishment"? This on the last day of school. Look teacher staff and all dont bring your f...up lige into ghe school. I dislike everything about this place! They nedd a complete overhaul from the 2nd grade teacher Boransky to the principal. You call yourselves teachers shame on you all. If writing things like this helps clean this place up then theres hope.
Very bad job the adminisstrative staff are very very disrespectful and not well spoken. Even doe i still work there im still going to give my opinion about how the work field would be if you where ever to work there
school police are great and the students are good and the food is good and the school is clean the gym is cool .
this is a church which teaches the true doctrine of the bible and give you the right content of how to make heaven
