Our Mission Statement:

We will prepare students to be responsible citizens in an increasingly complex and dynamic world.

The goals of the Roosevelt Middle School Science department are to:

  • Prepare students for success in their future high school and college science classes.
  • Prepare students to be scientifically and technologically literate.
  • Encourage students to wonder and be curious about the world around them.
  • Create effective critical thinkers.
