Roosevelt believes that failure is not an option. As a team, staff members evaluate all students to help them be successful. With an award-winning staff, the school offers classes that are challenging and creative. The school also provides a supportive and personal learning atmosphere with support services to help students succeed, whatever their previous academic experiences.
In 2006, Roosevelt adopted a revolutionary breakfast program that takes all students and staff from the school to the Boys & Girls Club to share breakfast and exercise in a small group setting. A “home cooked” style breakfast is served, and students and staff meet in their small groups to discuss issues, build relationships, and develop personal and social responsibility.
Parents are invited to participate in the district through the Parent Community Advisory Council.
Students at Roosevelt learn math with the aid of teachers and computers, helping them prepare for the Wyoming PAWS test and for life after high school. Reading and writing are integrated in all classes, and a strategic reading class is required for all incoming ninth-graders.
Roosevelt students also study physical science, biology, environ-mental science and environ-mental chemistry, as well as U.S. history, world history and modern American studies.
Additional options include career development and Casper College BOCES classes, as well as electives in Next Generation Dale Carnegie, career development, computer applications, nutrition and child development, life management, intro to art, drawing and painting, and sculpture and printmaking.
Roosevelt High School offers student participation in Student Council, Meals on Wheels volunteering, and journalism.
Students who wish to participate in sports may do so at Kelly Walsh, Natrona County, or Midwest high schools.
Roosevelt is home to a Behavior and Social Skills program for special education students who need behavior support, and to a stabilization lab, a self-contained special education program that provides intermediary support for students in crisis. Participants in both probrams are placed through the IEP process.
A PAWS prep course is available for juniors to practice doing math on computers, review reading concepts, and study writing. Roosevelt also encourages all eligible students to take advantage of ACE classes, which are courses at Casper College that offer high school and college credit simultaneously. These classes are free to high school students.
A sixth block of the day is available for students who choose to take it.
We have a revolutionary breakfast and mentoring program at Roosevelt. During the second block of the day, all of our students and staff go to the Boys and Girls Club together, where students are placed in small groups with a mentor teacher. These groups eat, talk, and exercise together daily as part of the Personal and Social Responsibility Social Choices (PSR) course.
Roosevelt students also have access to a guidance counselor, two social workers, a school psychologist, and a counselor from Central Wyoming Counseling Center.
