Roosevelt honored for academic excellence

Email News Alerts

When Roosevelt Elementary School received word this past fall that its students had received a "five star" rating (out of a possible five) in both reading and math, it was cause to celebrate.


First, because the Detroit Lakes grade school was one of only 78 in the state to receive two five-star ratings in 2006.

But secondly, and perhaps more importantly, the double "five-star" designation marked a significant turnaround in academic achievement for the school.
