School Description:

Roosevelt is Natrona County School District’s alternative high school. At Roosevelt, success is the ONLY option. With an award-winning staff, the school offers classes that are challenging and creative. The school provides a supportive, personalized learning atmosphere with support services to help students succeed. Roosevelt High School is committed to teaching students high-level academic skills and building passion that will put each student on the path to their future. Roosevelt holds its students to a very high standard. Attendance, participation and achievement are non-negotiable.

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” breakfast is served, and students and staff meet in their small groups to discuss issues, build relationships and develop personal and social responsibility.

Roosevelt has designed a wellness focused, brain-based academic intervention model using the dynamic SPARK model designed by Dr. John Ratey. The combination of strategic body movement and aerobic exercise plus focused reading and math intervention will create increased student achievement and engagement.

Students at Roosevelt learn math with the aid of teachers and computers, helping them prepare for the ACT 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 have access to a wide range of academic courses during their high school careers. Additional options include career development and Casper College BOCES classes, as well as electives in art, business, building, drama, and the ProStart culinary arts program.

Roosevelt High School offers student participation in Student Council, Meals on Wheels volunteering and journalism. Students who wish to participate in sports or take a course not offered at Roosevelt 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.
