    "So sad. Left this school because of the closed-minded disfunctionality. I regret not writing the review right away, but I was concerned about confidentiality. The principal is awful and horribly apothetic. If you want your children to reach their potential, this will NOT suit you - look for other options. This school is as far away from the cutting edge of learning as you can get!"

    "Such a waste of potential! I have always been a hands on parent, involved in the children's activities, sports, etc. To be clear, Hawthorne is a great town, and a terrific community to raise a family. From my experience there are great people in this town raising wonderful children, but Roosevelt School WOEFULLY under serves this community. These are the career administrators that are happy with status quo. There is no energy in this school, from the principal on down. While we have seen a few really good teachers, they are overwhelmed by the tide of apathy. We have had to opt for private school, despite already paying high taxes, because we owe it to our children to do something better than, "good enough." It is NOT good enough."

    "NO WAY! Our child is just finishing the 5th grade, and we have had a terrible experience. The friendships are great but the learning environment was awful. Our child is bright, but not a natural "go-getter." Well the motivation and enthusiasm from the 5th grade teachers is right out of the dark ages. Our child had an older woman teaching her 5th grade class who was particularly poor. The proof is in the Ratings by Grade on this site. While the school is rated a "7" overall, the 5th grade rating is a "5." Any parent who wants the best for their child should avoid Roosevelt. If average is OK for you kids, then this is the place."

    "We love Roosevelt School. We have two children who have attended K through 5. The teachers are wonderful and our children are flourishing. We appreciate the open door policy the administrators have at Roosevelt School. Every time we have needed help, they have listened and reacted to rectify the problem. We are proud to be part of this community and are confident our children are getting an excellent education both socially and academically."

    "DON'T BE FOOLED!! I have had it with the apathy from this school's administration and teachers. My child was at an excellent school system in the past, before we moved to Hawthorne, so I know the difference. The interaction and facilities are awful. I want better for my child, so next year its going to be a new school one way or another! My child can NOT get the appropriate attention in the areas where she is advanced (math and science), and in the places where extra help may be needed, nothing is done. I have heard personal nightmare stories about one of the older teachers in the fifth grade, and I'm not going to gamble with my child's future. Do your child the best favor that you can, and avoid this school."
