Going to Revere was easily one of the most miserable experiences of my life. It's true that this district only cares about grades and its reputation, making it difficult to feel part of the "community" they love to boast despite favoring only a select group of students. Speaking of community, the school is extremely cliquey, so it was hard to ever feel welcome or like a had a friend group. I often ate lunch alone because I had no one to sit with. The district is located in a very affluent suburb of Akron/Cleveland, and a lot of students are out of touch with how most people live and don't understand financial hardship in the slightest. Although the academics are great and prepare students for the academic aspect of college, I do not feel prepared for the "real" world because I was conditioned to be obsessed with my grades. The school associates taking lots of AP courses and getting all A's as being happy, so this mindset undoubtedly hindered my progress in college.
I have been in the Revere school district my entire life and I will admit academically it is a pretty good school. Each school has its issues and for Revere it's definitely their lack of diversity, within both the students and staff.
Revere was a really great school to prepare you for college. The kids and teachers took education very seriously and pushed all their students hard.
I’m fairly new to this school, we have a brand new school. It’s beautiful!! The football field and track are right on campus. Not much I’d wanna change about this school, it’s pretty nice. I like the choices I have for classes, lots to choose from!
Hands down a great overall school academically, but there are some things that detract from it, making it less appealing. For example, the school is very political in that the parents have so much involvement in the students life and in the school itself that it all seems a bit overbearing. This is because the school is located in an affluent suburb of Akron/Cleveland and for a good portion of families one parent stays home or works reduced hours because there is no financial need for them to work a full time job. One of the great things about this school though is if you are a motivated student that enjoys learning, you will find teachers that will develop you and grow you not only as a student but also as a person.
I liked most things about Revere High School. I transferred to the district at the start of high school and the people there were very nice and welcoming. The overall academics were very good and I found that there were a lot of very knowledgeable and qualified teachers. The school also offered a lot of programs and things to get involved in. Going into high school I did not think I would join any clubs, but the school really offered something for everyone. One of the few things that I would change is the fact that Revere High School did not have a string orchestra when I went there. When I was there, they started a string orchestra in the middle school. As a violinist, I felt it was unfair to those kids who began to play in middle school, but did not have that opportunity in high school. They did have a fantastic band, so there were opportunities for musicians. Overall, Revere High School is a great high school and they are a great school to prepare students for college.
Revere High School is an excellent school with an immense focus on education and college readiness. There are plenty of college prep classes that you are able to take.
I liked some of the staff and feel like they prepare you fairly well for college. The math department is really good although some of the teachers are horrible. The school district is extremely safe and the parents care a lot. I disliked the lack of diversity and the fact that the school district is extremely small and you pretty much know everybody.
I like the atmosphere of Revere High School and how everyone is encouraging for us to do better. When we students need to ask questions, our teachers try their best to help us in any way they can. The teachers are very helpful as well when we ask questions! In addition, the counselors at Revere High School are phenomenal! I like that I can talk to them without feeling nervous. My counselor really tries her best to help me with college applications and scheduling at the high school. Not only that, but the activities outside of school are fun and exciting. I really enjoy going to football games and participating in the Revere Marching Band!
Provided me with almost everything I needed before beginning college. Good teachers and quality of education. The only thing I would like them to add is more and updated personal finance classes.
I like the variety of courses offered; however, it often feels like the administration prioritizes sports (especially football, soccer, and basketball), which leaves other activities lacking proper attention.
I felt that the school caed far too much about scores and ratings than they did about the actual students. They were constantly making changes that were supposed to make learning easier, but it only made school more complicated and confusing.
Revere High School was one of the best place I could have imagined to grow up. Being a small school, student develop a strong sense of connection and pride in their school. Seeing the same group of people for the past 12 years has allowed me to build some kind of relationship or connection with a majority of my peers. It has also allowed me to develop relationships with several reoccurring teachers that played an important role in shaping my plans for the future and in my academic career. I believe Revere as a school district has more than properly prepared me to be successful in all my future endeavors. The only downside was the lack of diversity in the school. We also had slightly less clubs than other schools because of our smaller class sizes but we had a lot of excellent sports teams, an amazing band program, and one of the best drama clubs in the area.
Revere High School is a typical upper middle class suburban high school. By that I mean that it is mostly white, but in general has good teachers and prepares its students to enter the college environment. The people in the environment seem to actually want the students to succeed in whatever career path they choose.
Revere is an overall good high school. I feel like the rigor of academics and teachers have really prepared me for college and the rest of my future. The stigma about grades here still lingers, which is why the environment may not be that great all the time. There are plenty of resources for tutoring, counseling, etc for anyone that may be struggling, and the faculty really does try their best to help anyone in need. Outside activities such as sports or clubs are alright, but there’s nothing particularly outstanding or special about them. Overall, Revere has been a pretty good experience for me in terms of preparing me for the future and providing a somewhat positive high school experience.
I appreciated how hard the teachers worked to not only get to know the students, but to help them through any difficulties they may be having. It is a great learning environment and no matter who you are, you will feel comfortable and welcomed there.
I really enjoy going to school at Revere. I started Kindergarten at Revere and am currently a senior. The school has helped me to grow as an individual in the classroom and in other aspects of my life. My parent’s built their house in the Revere School District because of how good the schooling and teachers are. I have gotten the opportunity to take higher level classes including honors, AP, and CCP course which have helped to prepare me for college next year and begin to earn credits for college. My teachers challenge me and encourage me to strive to grow and become a better student. I have learned all the basics that I will need for college so that I will have a very strong foundation as I transition into the harder coursework.
