Christian Ledesma, Principal


Serving Students in 12th Grade, 9th Grade Last names A-G

Dear Roosevelt HS community,

Welcome to Roosevelt High School - the best high school in Minneapolis. It is an honor to continue to serve the Roosevelt community as principal. We have an amazing staff, the best students, and an enthusiastic administrative team, all ready to serve your family.

This year marks my 21st year in education – having served in both New York City and Minneapolis. I earned my BA at New York University, a Master’s of Science in Teaching at Pace University, and my administrative license at the University of Minnesota. I live in the Standish neighborhood, a short walk from Roosevelt, with my wife Wendy, our three kids, and a COVID pup. We can often be found on family walks through the neighborhood and around Lake Hiawatha Park.

As a neighbor of Roosevelt and with students in the Dual Immersion program, I have a personal investment in the success of Roosevelt – three very creative, curious, and energetic Ledesma kids are coming our way in a few years. In addition to continuing to build strong relationships that are the foundation of our work, my focus is on improving the academic opportunities of our students keeping equity at the forefront.

I look forward to our work together! If you need to reach me, I am always available via email at
