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.

Meet the Teacher Night

Dear Parents or Guardians:

Administrators, teachers, and staff of Revere High School cordially invite you to participate in the Meet the Teacher Night event, which will take place on Tuesday, September 9th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Revere High School. The purpose of this event is to build home-school connections. We strongly believe in parental involvement and support the notion that the most accurate predictor of a student’s performance in school is the extent to which a student’s family is involved in the process.

Revere High School Wins National Urban Education Award

At its 2014 National Excellence in Urban Education Symposium held on May 21-23 in San Diego, the National Center for Urban School Transformation awarded Revere High School a Gold Medal award as the Best 2014 Urban School in the United States.

To qualify for this prestigious national award, urban schools around the country had to meet rigorous eligibility criteria and successfully validate the application through a site visit and presentation at the organization’s National Symposium. From a pool of 10,000 aspiring winners, 16 finalists in three categories qualified for the national award. At the secondary level, three schools—Mallard Creek High School, in North Carolina, Thurgood Marshall Academy in DC, and Revere—qualified for the honors, and Revere High School proudly emerged as the Gold Medal winner in the competition. The award is an historic moment for an urban school with high transiency and poverty rates (80 percent of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch), with 27 different native languages spoken by students in the school, and with a significant population of English-language learners and special-education students.

Over the last four years, Revere High Schools has experienced profound organizational changes yielding positive results in student achievement.   A culture of innovation led by educators who have high academic expectations and who provide students with a rigorous and meaningful curriculum is flourishing.  For example, learning has been put into the hands of students through the Flipped Learning model.  Teachers and students can be observed partnering with each other to use educational technology (iPads) to learn curricula, enrich instruction, and promote student-centered practices.  Technology savvy students sit at a “Genius Bar” in the Learning Commons trouble-shooting services to faculty, students, parents, and visitors throughout the day.

Rigor, relevance, relationship, routines, and resilience set the stage for engaging and effective instruction.  Expanded learning time (4×4 Block of 80-minute periods) provides students the opportunity to participate in-depth curriculum exploration, cross-disciplinary learning, and electronic portfolios.  An advisory period to support students and foster personalization; a Freshman Academy to help students transition to high school, and Professional Learning Groups to promote collaboration, analyze and share classroom practices, and learn new instructional strategies through job-embedded professional development are among other innovative changes.  School-wide rubrics aligned with Common Core State Standards are displayed and used throughout the school.

“The finalists have attained a level of achievement more typically seen in schools that serve very affluent communities,” said Joseph F. Johnson, Jr., executive director of the National Center for Urban School Transformation. “They’ve demonstrated evidence of effectiveness among all of the student populations they serve, including English learners and students with disabilities. They prove that our nation’s urban schools can be wonderful centers of learning that change children’s lives.  As a nation, we should be seeking out opportunities to applaud and support these schools while we provide systematic, substantive assistance to other schools seeking to attain similar results.”

On May 30th, Revere High School and the School District celebrated this prestigious national award at the school's field house. The Executive Director of NCUST, Dr. Joseph F. Johnson, came to RHS to preside over the banner presentation ceremony.
