Wikipedia Description: Theodore Roosevelt High School (Washington, D.C.)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Theodore Roosevelt High School is a public high school operated by the District of Columbia Public Schools in the Petworth neighborhood of Ward 4 neighborhood of Northwest Washington, D.C. Roosevelt enrolls 698 students (2017–2018) in ninth through 12th grade. Additionally, the high school is also home to Roosevelt S.T.A.Y. program, an alternative academic and career/technical program that leads to a high school diploma or vocational certificate.
The high school, located at 13th and Upshur Streets NW was built in 1932 to accommodate 1,200 students. Just prior to the 2016–2017 academic year, it completed a $121 million, two-year facility modernization. During the renovation period, classes were conducted at the MacFarland Middle School campus nearby at 4400 Iowa Avenue, NW. The school campus has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Alongside a regular college entrance curriculum, the school included business-oriented classes to accommodate the interests of white students who had previously been served by the Business High School at Ninth Street and Rhode Island Avenue Northwest. The business focus was in contrast to the technical focus of McKinley Technical High School and Armstrong Technical High School. The school was integrated in 1953, one of the first schools in the District of Columbia to do so.

2020 photos: The year is too new to have anything to report. The Covid-19 disaster cut off most events here in DC after March 11 and even cut off going outside after awhile. Here's hoping honesty and integrity wins for a change this November.
