A Message From Our Principal

Welcome to ESP, the best small public school in Los Angeles! We are excited to offer this website so you can stay connected, because that’s what ESP is all about – the connection between students and teachers, school and family, our community and the world. Use the resources here to help get the most out of the ESP experience. 

The Academy of Environmental and Social Policy (ESP) for Roosevelt High School is an off-site true small public school (roughly 300 students) that provides all students a career-ready and college-preparotory program. ESP is a Magnet-like school without the Magnet application. At ESP we challenge ALL students to be critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, hardworking, collaborators, reflective, inquisitive, and thoughtful members of our community. ESP is a school that is safe, tolerant, and inclusive. Students consistently comment that ESP is a family-like school where every teacher demonstrates their commitment and dedication to students achievement through engaging activities, specific feedback, and personalized instruction. We look forward to welcoming you to our ESP Roosevelt Rough Rider family.
