We’re happy to share some of the exciting things going on for the 2016 – 2017 school year. I am honored to serve Theodore Roosevelt School as principal.

Theodore Roosevelt School serves 6th through 8th graders, and is located in the historical area of Fort Apache. This coming year will be our 94th year in operation. We have an active STEM program, which provides our students with the opportunity to experience a world-class science and math experience that will carry them into the global economy. We also offer after school experiences such as archery, beading, basketball and several other classes offered through our 21st Century program.

This school year, Theodore Roosevelt School was granted the School Improvement Grant, which has allowed us to hire a School Improvement Specialist and an Academic Coach. With these two extremely qualified and talented staff members on board, both our teachers and students will have extra academic support. TRS is a school that encourages critical thinking among our students and staff.

Your child has the opportunity to participate in student council, Lego robotics, and athletics. All activities and classwork is designed to foster an environment and attitude of exposure to great things. More than half our students involve themselves with extra-curricular activities at TRS. This speaks volumes to our mission of reinforcing positive characteristics and staying active. Last year we were undefeated in softball, and the girls’ basketball came in first in our league and the boys were second. We were undefeated in flag football and did very well in archery, volleyball, track, and cross country.

We are a residential school with both day and dorm students. If your child wants to stay in the dorm, we have room and are very excited to provide your child that opportunity. Currently, out-of-the-area students stay in the dorm seven days per week and local students go home on Friday afternoons and return Sunday evenings.

If you would like to be involved in our school, please email, call, or stop by. You do not have to have a student in our school to be involved, we welcome everyone. The success of our students is a direct result of a continuous and collaborative effort between our school and our community.

Thank you for visiting the Theodore Roosevelt School website. If you would like to visit our school campus or cannot find an answer to your questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email. Go, Warriors!
