Very strong academic orientation. Very good counselors. I am very happy with the very high standards of the school that have pushed both my children to work hard and achieve far more than they would have otherwise.

Pauk Revere is not only great in Academic scores but it's also great because the sports and music programs they have. Besdies, they also have a small farm that helps the students to gather around and take care of the animals.

My son just started at Revere. I was worried that he would be overwhelmed at such a big school, but he absolutely loves it. And so do all of his friends. The school seems to do a good job of helping the students navigate the new experience and feel empowered to handle the new independence and responsibility. I look forward to seeing what being at Revere with its mix of different people will spark in him.

Overall, this is a good school. One of the bad aspects is the extremely late (or no) response you recieve after a call to the school. The teachers are fine in honors, but the discipline focuses on the wrong people. Still, if you have a smart social kid they should be fine and enjoy middle school

In response to the review posted on July 2, 2009. My child just graduated from Revere. He had a great 3 years, had good teachers, grades and made lot's of new friends. The new principal and all the administrators are wonderful.

I'm currently going into 7th grade at PRMS and I'm extremely impressed with the faculty and staff. Reguardless of the other comments (overexagerated) this is one of the best schools in California. Thank you Mr. Carnine, Mr. Hernandez, Mr. Amos, and Mr. Miyoshi! -Allison Wyant

We loved this school it was a great fit for my daughter. Her classes and teachers were very challenging and she did very well. She got along with all the kids in school and had some great teachers. She graduated in June 2009 and had a great three years at Paul Revere Middle School

Our experience at Paul Revere was literally a nightmare. Administrators and counselors are incompetent, all new, and don't know any of the students. No one ever answers the phone and when one goes to the school one is just given the run around. Teachers may be fine in the honors program, but if your child is not in honors, they are basically ignored, given the worst teachers, and left to fend for themselves. All children are not treated equally here, and are not given equal access to a quality education. Paul Revere should only be a school of last resort for those that care about their child's education and school experience.

Paul Revere Charter Middle School is the hidden jewel in a very tarnished LAUSD Crown. I say this as all of my children have or will attend this exemplary charter middle school. The newly hired administrative staff (principal, assistant principals etc) is dedicated to continuous improvement on campus for ALL (students, staff, faculty and parents). This is quite a statement considering Revere's current API is 837. which rates amongst the highest in all of CA. No one is resting on past luarels at PR, everyone is bonding together to create the best possible education for ALL students in a real world setting.

My son is in sixth grade with Mrs. Gadh and Ms. Williams. These teachers are great and very accomodating. They are always available and helpful. They really know their students very well. Mr. Miyoshi and Mr. Amos are just amazing, too. Our experience here at PR has been mostly positive. Thank you.

I am currently a seventh grader in Revere MS and I would day that it's a pretty good middle school. For those overachievers and 110% students, it probably isn't the greatest school you'll go to. A students don't get as much needed attention. For those average but pretty good A, B, and maybe a C students, this school is great! The teachers (definitely 5 stars) help a lot and are overall kind and amiable. The honors program is great, and there's even a single high honors ASAS class (rare!) that is somewhat more advanced than the honors classes. The copious diversity in social and ethnic factors here are good, there is a lot of different topics besides fashion and tv shows to talk about. Overall, this is a pretty good school, and as long as you have the motivation to study hard, you will do great!

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
