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 7th grade and has had a wonderful experience so far. The campus has so much to offer, and all his teachers bend over backwards to help. i am more than pleased with our experience. come see for yourself this amazing public middle school!
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 a student in grade 6 and my teachers, Mr.Oberman and Ms.Daley are wonderful! PR has a great curriculum and a pleasent atmosphere. So far i've had nothing but good experiences (mostly).
im going to this amazing school and there is alot of home work but this school is most satisfying. i love this school everyone is nice and the teachers are great
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!
We are the parents of both a 6th grader and a 7th grader and have had a great experience so far - the transition to a big school, while not always seamless, has been facilitated by caring and responsive teachers. Our children have grown and developed in this large, but exciting, environment. It's not perfect but neither is life. Paul Revere teaches how to adapt - perhaps the best lesson of all.
I am a student at PR and in sixth grade. My teachers, Mr. Hernandez and Mr. Carnine, are the best ever and love to teach. They have a great sense of humor. My PE class with Ms. Omori is fantastic, except for running miles weekly, but everyone has to do that. I am also in the music program, which is great. But I must say, the facilities could be a lot cleaner and the plants better taken care of. I haven't seen many fights. I also wish people would be suspended more often for their wrongdoings. There are bad people at PR, and good people. PR is giving out the wrong message; do bad things and you get the attention, get straight A's and you are ignored. To me, it all depends on which teachers you get that determines if you'll like the year or not.
As a parent of a 6th Grader I could not be happier with Paul Revere...the teachers she has are Mr. Hernandez and Mr. Carnine....Love them...and so does she. The way they have thier PE set up is excellent and the music department is great, too. I have experienced nothing but caring and loving people. Also, My daughter loves the school! She is learning so much. I thank God for a Public and Charter school like PR in my area. Darlene Herbstman, Mom
I am a public school advocate, but am disgusted and frustrated with PR! While there are some excellent teachers (Mr. Honda, Mr. Schwartz, Ms. Chen as examples), my experience to date is that there are too many teachers and Administrators who simply don't care, can't relate to kids, and/or are simply killing time until they can retire (think Stepford). Note: My child sees fights weekly and claims that only a small percentage of the kids get caught. Calls I've made into the school remain unanswered. I am disgusted.
I love the diversity of the school. The curriculum and teachers are challenging. It also is a safe atmosphere.
For a LAUSD middle school Paul Revere is a very good choice. The students are engaged and responsive. There does not appear to be a pervasive bully problem as with most LAUSD schools. There is a sense of pride that I have seen my son develop since being at Paul Revere. The first year he was not sure he liked the school but by the second he was very please to be there. He especially likes the honors math and science classes. Also a nice treat is Mr. Honda's farm. My son loves to visit the animals and take care of them. For a very large middle school Paul Revere has a lot going for it. Another plus is it is a very diverse school with many great kids getting along. I wish more LAUSD schools were like this one.
My son has really developed into a brilliant student at this school. He loves going everday and the teachers are the best. He plays music for an hour each day and is very very happy. I just wish it went on to high school. The math and science classes are world class.
This is a terrible school. Many teachers belittle the students in class and are unresponsive to messages to meet to discuss issues. The counselors are even worse. Bad counselors are promoted to administration and replaced with inept, uncaring, bored people. Unbelievable that we as parents have to put our children in their care day in and day out.
This school is awesome, you make lots of friends and everyone is so nice. There are many pep programs that are very fun. Also everyone at school is so smart.
Recently toured the school and was extremely impressed, especially with the SAS and ASAS classes. The 6th graders were challenged , and seemed very happy in the classrooms we saw. Word is the new principal is top notch. It's a large school, but the kids didn't seem to feel at odds with that at all.
