Roosevelt High School
President Theodore Roosevelt High School, established in 1930, opened its doors at its present site in
1932. Located in the heart of Honolulu, it is a comprehensive, co-educational, public high school for
grades 9 through 12. It is one of six high schools in the Honolulu District and serves students from
six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one Hawaiian Language Immersion K-12 school. Presently,
there are 1522 students enrolled. Its close proximity to the University of Hawaii has resulted in
curricular and co-curricular linkages to the academic and business communities, especially in science
and engineering. Roosevelt is one of the few secondary schools that offers Hawaiian Language classes.
Roosevelt is a multicultural campus with representation of at least thirteen ethnicities reflective of
the Pacific Basin countries.
