Changes I'd like to see at Revere: -Stop District 'pacing' assessments in math. Revere scores, although not perfect, are among the District's highest. Stop wasting valuable teaching time with this kind of testing (there's enough testing with the CAT 6/CA Standards tests) and let our excellent teachers do their job. -Stop promoting 6th graders to 8th grade math (Algebra) without testing them on 7th grade math standards. Why rush to push students and skip a year of math without being sure of what they know? If they score 85% or better, they can probably handle Algebra. -As a 'Science and Tecnology magnet school,' every Revere teacher (and administrator) should have an email address and homework calendar on the website. Also, the library should have a computerized card catalog and check-out system. -Occasionally use SSR (sustained silent reading) periods for 'council' meetings where kids could talk about their issues and feelings about growing up.
I think that this is a very VERY unhelpfull school. I was doing wonderfull in elementary with strait fours, which are equivialant to A'S. I am a very respectful person and in my opinion, i think that whoever is still attending this school is making a very poor choice for their future careers.
This school is fabulous for my kids. Although my son has just graduated, with not the best grades, the consulars and teachers overrworked themselves trying to help him. My daughter however who is in 7th is doing excellent work. Although her math teacher is not very helpful. I tried to switch her out, but the principal ingnored me. My other dissapointment is that there is too much profanity.
I am a parent of a 7th grader honor student. She is doing fine in this school, she has great teachers and I think this is a good school. The 7th grader Counsellor is very helpful in answering problems with regards to my kid. Keep up the good work and also higher math teachers/parents needs to work together as a team for their kids, because the only subject that Revere is falling behind in the California Achievement is the higher math subjects.
My child just started at Revere this year in the 7th grade honors program. There are, at least, 35 kids in every class that I have been in. Last year when we toured the school there were at least that many in every class we visited. I did not see any classes with 20-25 kids. The atomosphere at the school seems very positive and the campus is beautiful. There are just a lot of kids in each class. Less would be better.
