A Message from Dr. Garcia

As we move forward into the future, we envision Revere High School as a place where academic excellence means educating the whole student. Creating conditions conducive to effective teaching and learning where the cognitive, physical, and emotional development of every student is acknowledged and valued remains the centerpiece of our educational philosophy. While we remain committed to high quality, innovation, and rigorous academic standards, we equally understand the complex challenges inner city students bring to school. As a result, we periodically reexamine and adapt our approaches to meet our students’ academic needs more effectively. Our ultimate goal is to create a challenging and supportive milieu that stimulates students’ academic curiosity, as they explore the curriculum. As we pursue those goals, we envision transforming our school into a stimulating learning environment; a crossroad of cultures; a place parents feel their children are safe and can reach their maximum potential; an environment in which all stakeholders, including teachers, administrators, families and the public express satisfaction of working together towards supporting our students.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Revere High School! As your child begins to make his or her transition to RHS, we want to remind you  that we  all, including teachers,  staff, upper  grade  level students,  and  administrators  will  also be transitioning as well, as it will take time for us to learn about your child and find ways to help him/her adjust  and  continue to  grow academically,  socially, and  emotionally.

At RHS, we consider parents and families important partners in ensuring their child's success. As partners, we look forward to building relationships with you to help you learn more about RHS and get you involved in supporting the numerous programs and services RHS has to offer!

Parents, legal guardians, and families of incoming freshmen and transfer students to Revere High School, during the 2016-2017 academic year, are informed that this year's Parent Orientation Night will take  place on August 24th from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the school auditorium. If possible, please bring an electronic device, i.e. a smartphone, iPad, etc. to easily share information with administration. Prior to this evening, please follow the appropriate link to share any questions you hope to have answered that night.

Dear Parent/Guardian,


The purpose of this letter is to inform you that starting with the 2016-2017 school year Revere High School will be transitioning from iPads to Chromebooks.

Consequently, depending on your child’s grade level, he/she is scheduled to receive a Chromebook in the RHS Field House from August 16 through August 19, 2016. In order to receive the Chromebook, you and your child are required to sign the Parent/Guardian Authorization for Students to take an Chromebook Home and the Student Pledge for Chromebook that describe the terms and conditions of Chromebook usage.


In order to ensure a smooth and seamless distribution process, we have developed the following pickup schedule based upon your child’ s grade level.
