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.

It is difficult to believe that we are almost halfway through the 2013-2014 school year. As incredible as this may sound, we are already in the second half of the year.

RHS Nellie Mae Leadership Team
On October 17, 2013, a high-profile delegation headed by Chinese educational leaders visited Revere High School. This visit falls within our growing interest in sharing best practices and promoting mutually beneficial partnerships with progressive educational institutions on innovative technology and other initiatives that promote student-centered practices. School authorities offered the visiting delegation a warm reception, which included JROTC colors presentation, nation’s anthem played on behalf of the two countries, Mayor’s welcome speech, Mandarin Chinese class presentation, and updates on technology and flipped learning by the superintendent of schools and hosting visiting principal.
Our guests, accompanied by Nellie Mae photographers, roamed the hallways of our school taking pictures of artifacts, wall mural posters, prints and visiting numerous classrooms where they had the opportunity to observe teachers and students partnering with each other to integrate educational technology (e.g., iPads) into curriculum and instruction and implement other student-centered approaches.
Our visitors were duly impressed with our school’s organizational structure, particularly the advances we have made in incorporating technology into classroom instruction to promote student learning. The event culminated in a working lunch interview with teachers and students followed by closing remarks by school officials and the head of the Chinese delegation and a ceremonial exchange.
To expand your perspective on this event, please view the photo gallery below.

HALLOWEEN COSTUME GUIDELINES
On Thursday, October 31, 2013, we will ban any costumes and activities that violate the dress code or may distract or disengage you from learning. We will also prohibit you from carrying objects (real or fake ones) into school facilities that can potentially endanger the safety and/or orderly operation of the school. Remember that the focus of school is to provide a safe environment conducive to teaching and learning.
ON THIS DAY, WE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO:
1. Wear costumes that depict gangs, horror characters, or are scary in nature.
2. Bring any weapons including fake ones into school facilities or premises (*).
3. Cover your heads or use masks that would make it difficult for teachers and administrators to identify you.
4. Wear heavy face makeup.
5. Wear costumes that demean any race, religion, culture, nationality, handicapped condition or gender.
6. Wear costumes that reveal the student's undergarments or do not sufficiently cover the student's body.
7. Wear costumes that include any type of blood or gore.
8. Wear costumes that will disrupt the routine of the day or class, including Physical Education.
(*) Weapons in schools can consist of more than just guns and knives. Any item that can inflict harm upon another can be considered a weapon. These include: throwing stars, arrows, bullets, and even lighters. Toy weapons should not be brought to school either. This is because many of the toys that are made are very realistic and can easily be misconstrued as a real weapon. This can result in others becoming afraid when they should not be.
Note: Bear in mind that the list provided above is not exclusive. Administrators will make the final decision on all costumes. On October 31, 2013, all students will enter the building through the Lobby Entrance Only. We will not allow students to enter the building through the Brown House (East Wing).
