Reeves Middle School

About Our School

Patrick Murphy, Superintendent

Aaron Davis, Principal
Karen Zarate, Assistant Principal


Reeves Middle School currently serves more than 394 students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades, most of whom have come to us from Madison, Roosevelt and Boston Harbor Elementary Schools.

Along with the core academic requirements, we offer a 7th/8th grade robotics program, Art for all grade levels, a music program that consists of choir, band and orchestra, wood shop (Tech Arts) for all grades, broadcast journalism, leadership, an advanced math program and a variety of electives with a music and arts emphasis.

We value all of our students’ growth by offering intervention and enrichment time during the school day. Opportunity Time (OT) is offered four days each week: the premise of OT is to give students additional time to receive in-depth instruction on difficult concepts, make-up tests or quizzes, turn in missing work, make-up missed assignments and, in general, assist students with learning while enjoying a smaller teacher to student ratio.

Reeves offers a balance of educating students academically while being sensitive to the social/emotional needs of our students. The school has changed the mascot to the RAMS to reflect our emphasis on the arts and music. RAMS stands for Reeves Arts & Music School.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.
