Having read thru the reviews of previous reviewers, I could not agree more.For want of appropriate word, I would describe carver middle school as a correctional facility. kids are sent out of class for hours , place on in-house suspension, or send out of school over frivolities..More emphasis seems to be given to "discipline" than learning. I am not surprise that the school is a "D" school by FCAT performance.And I add in all other areas as well. Carver middle school needs complete overhauling staffwise as well as infrastructure. Thereare questions that bug me : why is carver middle school 100% black in both staff and students? Where are the white kids living in the school zone. What school do they go to? Or is this a form of racial segregation.Why has the Orange County Authority neglected the school? Why have they turn deaf ears to all the complains about the school? I need answers.

This school is like any other school it has a place where kids could learn educational stuff. You might hear some bad rumors about Carver Middle School and think it's true but it's not. For example, people might hear that Carver is a school where kids fight a lot, but it isn't true I mean only a few kids might fight but not all kids fight. That is the same with other schools. The teachers at Carver teach all kinds of stuff that helps kids understand that subject. Carver is the oldest school standing in Orange County Public School an yet it is still standing, because of the hardwork that the staff and students of Carver put in everyday Carver can be a great school. Carver might be old but it doesn't matter if it is old it only matters about the education, I mean what do parents send their kids to school for. Education, right?

The kids in this school district are already dealing with alot with the neighborhood that is rough and unsafe.. then they attend this school to get an education with a few teachers, that are just there for the paycheck and dont teach the kids anything... For example, a teacher that is going to tell one of his students that he is going to throw her belongings in the trash in front of the entire class, doesn't inspire any of the qualities a teacher is suppose to be... Great job , for displaying just what you are... Bullies that enforce holding kids back from reaching their true potential because you instill fear not encouragement, distrust instead of faith, neglect instead of support .. doubt instead of confidence... within your student... How are they suppose to become law binding citizens when all you teach them are the negatives.... " Lead by example"

Horrible school. You would not learn a thing from being with teachers who just cares about getting paid, also teachers do not care about students because they know that since this is a bad school anyway the state would not be surprised by the students performance. Just HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANY PARENTS TO BRING THEIR STUDENT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carver Middle School is a phenomenal school I attended the school from 6-8th grade and learned a lot from the time spent there. The school has some great programs and is filled with some of the most amazing teachers and staff who are truly devoted in helping children achieve. I do agree that there punishment for not obeying dress code and other requirements where a little ridiculous but there was good intentions behind it. I can say those rules have truly prepared me for high school. Every school has its problems and Carver is no different it has its share of good and bad things.

This is the worst middle school in Orange County. You say you care about our children, obviously not. Why do you suspend them out of school because their shirt tail came out, their pants are up, but they did not have on a belt? I thought this was a place to learn, not a military base. If you want your child to fail, send them to Carver.

This school is making progress because of dedicated teachers who work there. The school has many difficulties and would benefit from a YMCA type after school program and a mentorship program such as 'Outward Bound'. The school would also benefit if it were truly administered in a site based model which included the entire staff in making improvements. A 'culture of success' has not been estabished at this school. But, the teachers are still striving to make a difference in the students lives and are attempting to help them one by one.

Carver has been a great school thus far for my 6th grade daughter. I was reluctant about sending her to the school but I'm glad I gave them a chance. It has proven to be a true asset. She is doing spectacular academically and she has made tons of life long friends. The teachers are awesome!
