This school is wonderful. The Principal, Barbara Kelly treats all the kids like they are her own and knows each one by name and talents. The teachers are fantastic. I get frequent emails and communication from them when there is concern, or even if they have a cute story to tell me. The curriculum and after school activities are interesting and fun. There is a huge focus on anti-bullying and other social awareness campaigns. My 3rd grader loves the school, her teacher and her classmates.

This is my childs last year at the Paul Revere School. We actually moved out of the Paul Revere district but every year I get permission to have my daughter attend such a great school. The teachers are amazing and the kids truly do come first.

I think the academics are high, as the school does follow th same curriculum set forth by the district! parent involvement is low., the students are wonderful but do need more support from their families

I do not care for the paul revere school and its quality of the academic programs. Parent involvement is limited and hard to achieve. Problems are addressed to the teacher and eventually the principal who sort of washes his hands of the problems and yes' you to death.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
