I am a current Senior at G. W.Carver High School. I am privileged to be a part of the graduating class of 2012. The reason i have come to this website, is to voice my opinion of this school. I always hear people commenting on our school. And its not always positive. And a lot of people speak of G.W.Carver High School in reference to the football team, which is great. But what about the academic portion of our school. We have some of the most phenomenal administrators that I've ever had the privileged of being taught by. And our principal Mr. Lindsay is one of the best there are. I thank him as well as the school administrators for being the amazing staff that they are.

It is often said a school is only as good as its educators but I say a school is as good as the support its educators receives from the parents. Educating a child does not start at school, it begins in the home. The home should be the foundation upon which education is built. In the past few years a noticable change has taken place at Carver. Carver graduated one of its largest classes in years this May 08 and we could not be happier with the care and attention our daughter received as a student. Too often it has been stated that unless your child is in the magnet program you should send them elsewhere. Carver loves all its students and encourages them all to be the best person they can be. Thank you Carver and many blessings!

I'm not a parent of Carver High School, I was a student there...it was a good school. Carver has alot of activities for students to do after example: FBLA, football, spanish club, and that is just to name a few...Some of the teachers listen to there students; cause they want they student to learn and be able to be success in life. Overall I give Carver High a 9;

Overall, Carver is a nice school, but I would only your child attend if he/she was in the magnet program. The rest of the student population is ok, but just like every other school, it has it's bad crowd too. Carver offers numerous extracurricular activities to keep it's students occupied after school like football, basketball, FBLA, Key Club, National Honor Society, and the famous 'Tiger Marching Band' just to name a few.

This school has excellent teachers and principals. However, the leadership skills that they obtain are very poor. It seems as if the school is controlled by the students. There are more fights and this school than any other school in this district. It would help if the teachers and principals, enforced the rules!

The teachers at this school needs to listen to the students more. The students are very talented and have bright ideas to make the school a better place. Otherwise, this school is excellant! I think they should keep up the good work!

Carver High is a very good school. Even though when featured in the paper its only for the bad things, there are good students at this school who come to learn and are happy to be taught.
