Welcome to Roosevelt High School, Los Angeles.

24791

Theodore Roosevelt High School is an educational institution (grades 9-12) located in the Boyle Heights area of Los Angeles, California and named for the 26th president of the United States.

Roosevelt is a public school in the Los Angeles Unified School District with an enrollment of 2,000, not including the Math Science Magnet Technology Academy and the Academy of Environmental and Social Policy, which are separate small schools. Previously Roosevelt was one of the largest high schools in the country, but two new public high schools and several charters have relieved overcrowding. Up until the 2009-2010 school year, Roosevelt followed a year-round calendar. In 2008, the school started to be managed by the Partnership for Los Angeles Schools, which was started by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. In 2010, Roosevelt was split up into seven small schools, each with its own principal, CEEB code (used by SAT, colleges, etc.), students and staff. Five of the small schools combined into one for the 2013-2014 school year, under the leadership of Principal Bruce Bivins, formerly Principal of ESP.

Our school colors are cardinal red, gold, and blue. The mascot is Teddy the Bear, and our sport teams are known as the Rough Riders. The school’s motto is “Don’t flinch, don’t foul, hit the line hard!”, which is a Theodore Roosevelt quote.

Roosevelt High School is part of the Boyle Heights Zone of Choice, which also includes Mendez High School, ESP, and the new STEM Pilot Academy.

THE EAST LA CLASSIC:

The East L.A. Classic is the homecoming game for Roosevelt High School and Garfield High School. The Classic has taken place since a few years after the opening of the two schools, with the exception of the Depression and World War II. The Classic brings out alumni from all parts of the world, usually fielding 20,000 people per game and has been held at the East Los Angeles College at the Weingart Stadium, although it has been held at the The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
