Mission Statement:
Responsible Choices • Modeling Respect • Success for All

Program Description:
Roosevelt balances scholastic excellence with a choice of electives and exploration. The Oregon State Report Card has consistently recognized our academic achievements by giving its highest marks to our school. Our WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) program trains 8th grade leaders to orient all 6th grade students to Roosevelt. The heart of our school is the library. Our full-time media specialist manages collections in English and French. Our comprehensive counseling and special education services offer a wide range of support to all students.

School Highlights:

  • Roosevelt’s new state-of-the-art school building will open in fall 2016.
  • The House/Advisor system is a critical component of the RMS program; each teacher advises approximately 25 students, who remain in the same House for their three-year career at Roosevelt
  • Student choice is the hallmark of Roosevelt. Students, parents and advisors collaborate to create a comprehensive schedule to ensure each student’s success
  • Roosevelt offers the middle-level French Immersion Program; fifth graders transition to us from Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary School and go on to South Eugene High School within the International High School (IHS) program

School Improvement Goals:

  • Assist and support students to meet or exceed academic standards in math, language arts, social studies, science and across the curriculum
  • Provide students with a wide range of experiential and intellectual experiences; increase advocacy for student exploration and engagement within the Roosevelt curriculum
  • Build authentic relationships throughout the RMS community; give students guidance and a valued voice
  • Value students’ personal experiences and their heritage; integrate social and equitable experiences within the curriculum

School Colors:
Red and white

French Immersion Program:
The Eugene School District’s K–12 French immersion program begins at Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary School and continues through Roosevelt Middle School and South Eugene High School. Students entering the middle-level program who did not attend Charlemagne must demonstrate an appropriate command of the language.

Roosevelt’s immersion program requires students to study entirely in French for 40% of their day. For the remaining time, they join other Roosevelt students for classes taught in English. All students take a year-long block class called “Connexions” that combines studies such as language arts, science, history, grammar and social studies around year-long themes. “Decouvertes” and “French Writing with a Twist” classes are offered in French and cover natural science, art, social science and formal writing.

At the middle school level, alternative school students take courses with the at-large population of the host middle school along with classes in their specialized alternative program. Thus enrollment and state test results are counted with those of the host middle school. For more information, contact the school office.
