Revere Public Schools is an urban school district comprised of students of color and immigrant students with Hispanics constituting the largest demographic group (57%) trailed by White (32.6%), Asian (4.5%), African American (3.3%), Multi-Race/Non-Hispanic (1.9%), and Native American. Our school district strongly believes in teacher leadership as a catalyst for sustainable change and, thus, provides ongoing support, training, and opportunities for teachers to take on various leadership roles within the organization and grow professionally. Our core beliefs center on “do what is best for students,” through building relationships with students and families and a culture of high expectations and accountability that not only promotes student agency but also ensures equitable resources and access to quality education for all leaners. Lastly, Revere educators believe in the culture of 3-Rs (rigor, relationships, and resilience) as key building blocks for preparing students for civic engagement, education, and career opportunities.
