• Academics

    Eleanor Roosevelt H.S. is one of the largest and one of the most academically rich high schools in Maryland. The school was recognized by the United States Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School in 1991 and 1998, a New American High School in 1999-2000, and received a Siemens Award for Advanced Placement in 2002-2003.

    Roosevelt is also the Science and Technology Center for the northern part of Prince Georges County (admission by PSAT 8/9), and is a member of the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science, and Technology.

    We have a modified block schedule called the Hybrid Schedule (both double and single period classes) with five (5) lunch periods. There are a total of eight (8) periods in the regular schedule, plus a zero period which is offered at the beginning of the school day to assist seniors, juniors, and sophomores in taking needed AP courses. Single class periods convene for 45 minutes; whereas, double class periods convene for 95 minutes. This flexibility raises the academic bar and encourages academic achievement as shown in the school’s consistently high Parcc and AP scores.

    Eleanor Roosevelt H.S. offers a wide variety of courses that help students enter the college, career, or military branch of their choice. The school is organized into the academy programs and academic departments listed below.
