    "I'm a Roosevelt parent for three years now and I'm very happy with the school. Sure there are challenges, but overall I I think this is a great school. One of the thingsI love about Roosevelt is the sense of community. It's a neighborhood school and the principal, nurse and specials teachers knows all of the kids by name. The PTA is very active and works closely with the administration and the teachers to provide enrichment opportunities for the children beyond what the district can provide. On a couple of occasions problems have arisen and the administration has been very responsive to our concerns and worked with us to resolve issues in a thoughtful manner. Tracy Spagnolo is not the principal because her husband works for the district. She's the principal because she's good at it. Are they one of the lowest ranked elementary schools in Kenmore, let alone the suburbs? Yes. But there is also approximately an 80% correlation between poverty and the Business First rankings, higher than any other factor I evaluated, including test scores. Roosevelt has approximately 50% of their students on the free or reduced lunch program, which is the measure used for poverty in the district."

    "This school is the poorest performing elementary school in Kenmore. They have great difficulty in keeping administrative staff at this school having gone through 3 principals in 2 years time, and the current principal is only in her position because her husband also is employed by the district. The irst 3 1/2 years we were affiliated with this school we had no issues..my older son attended and is typically developing. We enrolled my middle son there in 2010 in kindergarten, and while his kindergarten staff was excellent, several other teachers, mainly the gym teachers made life difficult for him because they do not tolerate children with special needs well. The gym teachers harrassed him verbally on more than one occassion, and we pulled both boys from the school Dec. 2011, and enrolled them in private school, and could not be happier with our decision. Roosevelt elementary school is the worst choice for a kenmore school, and if a parent is asked to place their children there, they should ask about open enrollment,. and try to get their children into Lindbergh, which is an excellent Kenmore school!"
