Roosevelt Middle School is located in Blaine, Minnesota, and is one of the schools in the Anoka-Hennepin School District, the largest in Minnesota located in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis. It has an enrollment of approximately 800 students although had nearly 1400 students prior to school boundary alignments pre-pandemic. Roosevelt has long had a history of strong state test scores relative to other schools in the district and other demographic-like schools in Minnesota. This is due to a strong, veteran staff that values the social and emotional connections with students and making sure they feel valued at Roosevelt.

During the 2021-22 school year Roosevelt has added the district middle level online program called the Virtual Academy. As with other challenges such as the boundary changes or the shut down to distance learning during the pandemic, Roosevelt continued to provide a strong education to its students. It will continue to do so for families that continue to choose to learn in a virtual format in the future.
