I learned that the conditions of the school were unsafe and that we deserve better learning space than this.
Roosevelt Senior High School, a comprehensive public high school in Ward 4 of D.C., was built nearly 80 years ago. While the building has seen small improvements over the years, the school building has many structural issues such as aging windows, leaky ceilings, broken sinks, and outdated technology. The staff and students have watched many other D.C. schools leap ahead in the modernization line, and in January 2012 they learned that modernization would be pushed back again until 2013. Students have been working closely with their school's leadership team to document the conditions of their school, and to build public support for a prompt and complete modernization of the building.
