About Our School

Karen Zarate, Assistant Principal


Reeves Middle School serves more than 425 students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades, most of whom have come to us from Madison, Roosevelt and Boston Harbor Elementary Schools. We provide an educational setting designed to help our young adolescents make a successful transition from the dependence of childhood to the confidence and independence required of high school students. Along with the core academic requirements, we offer a 7th/8th grade robotics program, music program that consists of choir, band, and orchestra, an advanced math program, and electives.  We also provide support classes for students who struggle in mathematics and/or reading.  We offer after school tutoring Tuesday and Thursday with the assistance of High School National Honor Students as well as, staff, and other adult volunteers.  We value all of our students’ growth by offering intervention and enrichment time during the school day during Opportunity Time.  Our efforts reflect our school motto:  If better is possible, then good is not enough. 

Modernizations and additions were completed in 2007, increasing student capacity.  Additions included a new entry lobby, administration area, choir room, three new science classrooms, a new library, and a fitness room for physical education.  There are audio enhancements, digital projectors, and document cameras in each classroom.  The school is equipped with multiple Chromebook carts for classroom technology integration as well as a MacBook cart for higher end technology integration.  Reeves offers a balance of educating students academically, socially, and behaviorally using differentiated instructional techniques to meet the needs of all learners.
