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.

I would give an A for the quality of academic programs, and a A+ for the music, art and aports programs. Parent involvement is high but could be higher. I jave a son in 7th grade and I love this school as does he.

This is a horrible school that is way too crowded. The kids get too much homework. The principal and staff are much too harsh on students.

My son just finished his first year at PRCMS,and it was a very good year.I was very pleased with the teachers he had,they would always return my calls and keep me informed about my son's progress.He finished 6th grade with two awards ,which I feel would not be possible without his hardwork and caring teachers. As a parent I'm hoping for another productive year for7th grade.

I believe that both the charter and magnet sections of Revere have good and not-so-good teachers. I believe that the classes are too large. The principals, teachers and staff work hard and care for the students. The math department is outstanding...at least while my son was there. I know that they have lost several wonderful math teachers to district level positions!

My child is in the 8th grade ASAS program at Revere, and we couldn't be happier. My child has always felt safe and has always been academically challenged. The PE program is strong and everyday. The teachers know the students strengths and weaknesses. It is an extremely caring enviorment. A child will only get lost if the parents allow it, which sadly at the middle school level is something you see a lot of... The principal is hands on involved, his focus and energy an inspiration to all. The student body is pulled from all around Los Angeles, which narrows the parent involvement down to the local mothers. They are warm welcoming women who get things done. A little diversity in the Pride/ PTA would be welcome... My only real complaint is the cafeteria... The food could not be worse. Do your child a favor and make her lunch.

Revere has provided a challenging academic program during the three years my son has attended. I am disappointed with the physics program in the magnet as there have been no experiments and/or demonstrations to increase student learning.

I would not recomend this school for someone who wants their child in a school with: good teachers, good sized classrooms, and overall nice environment, a helpful education.
—Submitted by a student

If your child is in the honors courses, then this is a school I would recommend, however if not they will most likely get lost in the shuffle. the school is far to large to meet the individual needs of students that struggle.

School is good for honors but inflexible in their extra-honors (HSAS) program. In other words, if a child is having diffulty in a class, she/he must leave the whole program in order to transfer a class, which is truly disruptive. Some teachers wonderful, others (those with tenure) truly awful, but in general, a good education. Keeps 6th graders apart from older kids. Very helpful as older kids are much more teenaged than younger one. After-school activities are limited. Kids must be off-campus 30 mins after end of classes--very hard for working parents.

Has great teachers. Discipline is great. Your kid will be safe.

My 6th grader is happy at PRCMS and the school ranks high acamenically for an LAUSD school. But the classes are way too large. Administrators are competent and helpful, but it is difficult to meet with them and get assistance because they have way too much on their plates.

Paul Revere is a wonderful school. My child has been there two years. The academics are rigorous. After a great math and science teacher in sixth grade, my child tested into Algebra in seventh grade. Some of the theorems they're covering I didn't have until high school. English class sizes are small, written essays, paragraphs, and poems are required every week. The P.E. program is outstanding, and has been turned around in the past few years by hiring serious athletes who lead it. The music department and their orchestras are renown throughout the city. The after school program, started by the parents, is in its second year, and covers everything from drama to soccer.

The teachers are bright, concerned, active and challenging. If the student is motivated, I am certain that Revere's highly gifted program gives as good an education as any private school in West Los Angeles.

A student says: great school, great teachers, great atmosphere, safe feeling. The most beautiful campus! Extra-curricular activities could be better, but funding is tight, and does not permit such things as separate teachers for each elective (e.g. there's a math teacher teaching art).

Great location, beautiful campus. Excellent honors and high honors programs. Excellent music program and sports.

My daughter is in Revere's 7th grade honors program and she has been lucky enough to get some of the best teachers she's ever had. That being said, this ain't no elementary school. In response to the 3/14/04 student, being 'nice' doesn't get you the A's they might have given in elementary school. Excellent spelling, grammar, and punctuation notwithstanding, there are very high standards here and a great deal of homework. My daughter attended private school for the first 6 months of 6th grade and the work is more intense at Revere, especially in 6th grade. Fortunately, there are often interesting and highly creative long-term projects culminating each unit of study and my daughter seems to enjoy this over the tedium of worksheets. Many teachers give college-style lectures, so she is learning note-taking skills. Emphasis here seems to be on preparation for high school, when grades really count.

The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

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.
