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

Program Description:
Roosevelt balances scholastic excellence with a choice of electives and social and emotional growth. The Oregon State School Report Card has consistently recog­nized our academic achievements by giving high marks to our school. Our CORE (Creating Our Roosevelt Environment) program trains 8th grade leaders to orient all 6th grade students to Roosevelt. Our House program emphasizes growth in the whole child. The advisory program offers student support for social and emotional growth as well as improvement of academic practices. Our comprehensive counseling and special education services offer a wide range of support to all students.

School Highlights:

  • The “House” advisory program is a critical component of the RMS program; each teacher advises approximately 26 students in a blended grade environment in academic skills/practices, social emotional growth and identity development
  • Students have access to electives in the performing arts (music, art, theatre), as well as Spanish, robotics, movie production, student government and AVID
    All students have a trimester of health and physical education each year
  • Roosevelt offers the middle-level French Immersion Program; fifth graders transition to Roosevelt from Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary School, and go on to the International High School (IHS) program at South Eugene High School
  • Roosevelt opened a new state-of-the-art building in fall 2016

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 intellectual experiences; increase advocacy for student exploration and engagement within the Roosevelt curriculum
  • Build authentic relationships throughout the Roosevelt community; give students guidance and a valued voice
  • Value students’ personal experiences and their heritage; integrate social and equitable experiences within the curriculum

French Immersion Program:

The French immersion program at Roosevelt is a “school within a school.” Most students in the program attended Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary School. Students entering the middle school 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 33% of their day. For the remaining time, they join other Roosevelt students for classes taught in English. All students take two year-long classes in French: Language Arts and Social Studies.

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.
