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.
Very nice middle school with full of edu. It has alot of fun activites and are middle school kids would love it!
This is the best school for all children. This school has the best teachers and staff out of all the schools. The teachers- most of them- help you out when you neeed it and they are people you would look up to. I'm actually going to graduate in a week and the 8th grade activities are great and always fun. Overall, this is the best school to go to for middle school. I spent my best three years of my life here, and they were great ones, too.
We'll for me as a Paul Revere student I feel as if that Paul Revere is a great middle school and is more than your average middle school. They make the 6th graders year easier by putting their classes closer together and only having to switch classes 3 times a day. At times Paul Revere is vivid but what middle school isn't. They have smart, fun teachers there. They give the 8th graders (like me) so much pleasurable memories like my favorite the DisneyLand Trip and 8th Grade Picnic. But as a conclusion Paul Revere Middle School is a great place for your child so check it out. (also for children in the 7th grade I recommend for honor english class only Mr. David Baca's 7th grade hornors english class.) Go Class of '08..!!!
After reading some of the earlier comments posted here, I wasn't sure if Paul Revere would work for my family. I am pleased to report this is a great school. The teachers, without exception, have been amazing. Our counselor is fantastic - he helped my son, who stumbled first semeser, get on track. My daughter loves it here and now my son is enjoying school. The most difficult lesson to learn is that the kids are responsible for themselves - no class interruptions for homework, lunch, backpacks left at home, if you miss class, you have to get assignments on your own - big difference from elementary school but great preparation for high school/college. What would make the school 5 star is more classes/clubs where these students can put their newly learned self reliance to work. Otherwise, a great place.
I started off at Revere in 2005. At first it was a harder transition since I came from an Elementary School of 250 people and homework was a once every couple of nights verses Revere were homework is every night and the teachers don't hold your hand and kids aren't always so nice. As the years pass by i've had so much fun here. Take note that I may not be doing what im supposed to do in class but I've found that your teachers care about you and your education. It isn't just a job for most of them its an enjoyment. Fav. Teachers: ------------------------- Ms. Zuckerbraun - 6th Mrs. Meyerstein - 7th Ms. Uchida - 7th Dr. Fish - 8th Ms. Combus - 8th Mr. Bates
My son just started the 6th grade in September, and I am very impressed with Revere so far. The teachers and the 6th grade counselor are high quality, and the administration has generally been friendly and helpful.
Paul Revere is a great school that has wonderful teachers that help kids out in their time of need. Some of the teachers do not fufill all my child's needs, but I am very happy with the way the school is run.
We are sad because the best teacher in the Eighth grade is leaving this year before our child can be in her class. Some teachers are wonderful, some a complete waste of time. The science program needs strengthening. The principal could more leadership, but many of the problems are due to LAUSD's woes. The school is HUGE and impersonal. Kids get lost in space literally and figuratively if they aren't really strong and directed. For us, it's a long drive. I wish we had better local alteratives. My child could be free to study or play with the hour a day spent in the car commuting. If you have to go here, you have to, I suppose.
I think PRMS is a great school and I like the many choices of the art,music,p.e and other activities that are offered to the students. My son is in the 6th grade and the transition from elem to middle school has been very smooth. The teachers are really great. I have no comment on the parent involvement because I haven't involved like I should be but I am unable to because I work for another local school district (@ IUSD). Thanks, Meiko Cook.
Coming from the private sector we weren't sure what to expect. So far this year we have found the teachers of very high quality, the education excellent and a genuine caring over all from the staff. The challenges for public schools are very different from the private schools but Paul Revere has the right attitude. The parents that we have met since joining are also terrific. Now, all my son can talk about is how glad he is being there and how much he is looking forward to Pali High; especially after yesterdays assembly presentation from the kids and staff of Pali High. The entire 8th grade of Pali was present with the intent of calming their trepidation in going to high school. My son also started (on his own) looking at colleges. This school has been a terrific influence. Thank you all very much. Mr. & Mrs. Callas
Paul Revere Middle School has a lot to offer the serious, responsible, enthusiastic student. My 6th grade daughter, has learned to navigate her way and succeed in a very real world environment committed to the success of the avid learner. It may not be the best choice for all students. However for the mature student who wants to achieve on variety of levels, academically, athletically, socially, artistically or musically, it can happen at Paul Revere. There is no hand holding, children learn to ask for what they want, need or desire and if they can do that they will thrive.
This is an amazing school which has given me so many great experiences I will never forget. I recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you Paul Revere!
Overall I would say Paul Revere has not been below standard but there is room for improvement. My child came from a high achievement school of seven years with a population of less than 450 students. I understand that she was not going to receive one on one attention, however, it's a process trying to meet with the teachers. You cannot visit the school without scheduling an appointment, (of course everyone going to be on their best behavior) sometimes a parent needs to just walk in and see what is been taught and how their child responds to teachers/peers. Lastly, I've never seen a principal, or one who holds a distinguished position that does not speak or even nod at a parent that would be Mr.Art Copper; this is not about his character just my observation since my child enrolled over two years ago. I do attend PTSA meetings and volunteer.
