As one of the largest and oldest elementary schools in the district, Roosevelt will be completely rebuilt to better serve the needs of the growing student community. The compact site requires innovative use of space, including a playground built above a ground-level parking garage and a multipurpose room with a stage and audio/visual alcove.

To honor the "Art Deco" architecture of the original school and its historical neighborhood, the new buildings will be built with the same classical balance of traditionalism and modernism.

Meanwhile, the school size will be increased from 64,000 to 100,000 square feet and improvements will be made in a new pick-up/drop-off plaza to alleviate street congestion. All portables will be removed from the campus and replaced with permanent buildings that will surround a central amphitheater and common area with shade trees and landscaping.
