Discover This School

Paul Revere College Preparatory School, kindergarten through 8th grade, is located in the heart of the Bernal Heights neighborhood. Our mission is to achieve academic excellence, while celebrating diversity and building a strong family - school - community connection. We provide a distinctive and high-quality education with our dedicated staff, small class-sizes, commitment to bilingualism, and a safe, nurturing learning environment, so that students may lead full and productive lives. Incorporated in the school are the core values that this community strives for: excellence in academic achievement, respect for diversity, and strength in character and personal growth. We focus on a rigorous academic program emphasizing reading, writing, math, science, and the arts.

Our dedicated and caring teachers and support staff work together to provide a safe and nurturing environment for learning. Learning based on projects and problem-solving addresses real-world issues through the lenses of race, gender, culture, economic equity, peace, justice, and the environment. Our community and the city are our classroom. School-wide expectations promote and recognize positive behaviors, civic responsibility, community service, acceptance, and safe/healthy choices. Assemblies recognize high academic standards of student performance as well as positive contributions to the overall school environment. We value a culture of service and support that is responsive to all and clearly defines how we work with our community. We frequently remind our students and families that at Paul Revere School, we cannot do it alone— "It Takes a Village". Partnering our efforts with a committed parent community, Paul Revere works toward a better future for all our children.
