• Roosevelt Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA)

    With a rich history of providing students with the artistic tools to both create and express, Roosevelt’s Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) department continues to meet the standard for middle school achievement in the arts.  Comprised of both Visual and Performing Arts, our teachers introduce new concepts and skills, refine talent, and provide students the opportunity to cultivate a love of the arts.
