Welcome to Revere High School

A national-award winning school, Revere High School has many reasons to be proud. Our teachers are recognized for developing meaningful Relationships with their students as a foundation for learning. Teachers serve as guides and advisors for students. Our community of learners supports our students and encourages them to be leaders and active participants in their own learning and high school experience. Students are given a voice and a choice in their learning through forming and leading clubs and committees as well as suggesting ideas for expanding learning opportunities for all learners as core components of their success. The result is thoughtful, passionate, curious, and enthusiastic students who achieve high academic success. 

Through Revere’s Rigorous academic programming, students delve deep into their learning. Students take a leadership role in demonstrating, through various methods, the deep understanding and knowledge they gained. Using the Chromebooks they are provided, students expand their learning and make Relevant connections to the real world. With flexible scheduling, students embark on a pathway to learn life skills and explore their interests and passions through internships and dual enrollment in college classes.

At Revere High School, we appreciate and celebrate the strength and Resiliency that comes from the rich diversity of our students. Our students are from many different cultures and have varied abilities, preferences, and backgrounds. We are proud of our heritage, some of our students are third or fourth generation Revere, and we welcome our new students and families. 

We believe that through Rigorous academics, deep and meaningful Relationships, and Resiliency to go the extra yard, every student will get a well-rounded, Relevant education, graduate, and be prepared to pursue his or her dreams in college or a career.
