High School Enrollment Fair
October 13, 2018 @ John O’Connell High School

This is the one opportunity you have to meet people from all the schools, pick up application materials and learn about what the school offers and what they have accomplished. This is the best way to determine the right place for your student.

All students have detailed info about schools, shadow and tours in their Google Classroom.  Please talk with your child about the best school choices for them. We will ask for 5 schools on the high school application.

Lowell and SOTA have very specific application requirements and dates. Charter schools require an additional application for the specific school. Contact the school for the application.

After a long hiatus, the busy blogging bees are back in session here at  There are a lot of changes this year at Paul Revere - we have a new Principal, a new Assistant Principal, and lots of new faces on the faculty and staff.  We even have a new 7000 sq. ft. turf field on the upper yard of the main building!   But we also have kept some of the best of our programs from previous years, and tops among those programs is our partnership with Alive & Free.  Every year Paul Revere partners with this program for an after school program for 4th and 5th grade boys.  The group was on the Street Soldiers podcast to kick off the year.

Revere Walks 'n' Rolls to School Again!

posted May 2, 2017, 8:58 AM by Brian Lawler

Our last Walk 'n' Roll event of the year happened this past Thursday, April 27th.  Similar to the prior events, this one was held at Martha and Brothers on Cortland.  Part of the "Safe Routes to School" initiative and organized my Paul Revere's own Teresa Maxwell, it was a wonderful community building event as well as great way to start the day.  We shared coffee and treats and then walked down to school together.
