I think teachers have heart here, but have a long ways to go in offering challenging curriculum. Classes move slowly and the building itself is very outdated and crowded. Behavior is allowed to slide.
I go there an its beast, best school nationwide , teachers are great awsome school
I have had the pleasure of having both my children educated at this middle school. I found the teachers helpful and knowledgeable. Their students success is their main goal and work extra hard to make sure that they are challenging each and every student. I am extremely satisfied with the education and competence of faculty at the Harris County Carver Middle School and would rate it a 5 star.
The school needs change. A lot of the staff there are from the old superintendent and they are not the best people for the job. Most teachers are good and the principals seem to care. But the job is to get my kids ready for high school and I don't think they are very good at that. Many teachers are too easy and want things to be pretty and fun. That is all good but why reward my child for doing what they are supposed to do like bring their book to class and do their homework?
My child has had a wonderful experience at Harris County Carver Middle School. The Administration and teachers are working hard to improve the mediocre repuation of the PAST. They are always available to parents and communicate in a proactive way through emails, electronic progress reports, phone calls and their up to date website. The school focuses on academics and safety. The fine arts programs and athletic programs are achieving at championship and award winning levels. If you haven't visited lately you should. Great things are happening at HCCMS!
As a teacher at HCCMS I would like to challenge many of the comments made on this site. As you can see many of them come from parents complaining about different rules, this is obviously from parents of students who do not follow rules. Goes back to the old saying about the ones yelling the loudest..... I am very proud of my school and faculty that I work with. I encourage all of these parents to actually come to the school and spend a day and see what a typical day at a 'middle' school is like. I am sure most of these parents have never spent the time to see what actually goes on or come to see all the hard work that takes place!!!!
i'm a former student of harris county carver middle school and i recommend harris county school system to anyone in the country, it's great.
I am a student who currently attends HCCMS. There are some areas that are good, and other that could use improvement. The top two things that need improvement would be the teachers and dress code. We could benefit from younger teachers. The ones we have currently,should have retired already. Also, the dress code regulations are a bit strict. Another thing, the county just spent about 4.5 million dollars to build a new gym. That money should have been spent to refurbish and clean the school. Even though it has many faults, HCCMS is the only place I would want to go. The teachers push us to do our very best ever day, and that is good. Go Tigers!
What a wonderful school this has been for both my boys. They have a wonderful Adminstration and the teachers are truly amazing! All programs at the school are done amazingly...what a great place to have your children!
Harris County Carver has improved in several areas this year. Principal leadership is in my opinion,is much better this year07-08. Teacher quality is good and the extracurricular activities are enough to keep the students busy. I would love to see more challenging classes. At present you can only take 1 gifted course. We came from another school system, and feel that our child is not being challenged. HCCMS is not able to offer enough classes for advanced students and those classes that are offered are offered in the same block, so its not possible to take more than 1 class. It is really something I hope is addressed for next years students.
This is the worst school my children ever attended. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The principle and the staff care more about the dress code then they do education.
I am a student and I do not like the school because of the way students treat other students! The teachers are absolutly unfair and I do not like it!
I am a parent who has 2 daughters. One of which had troubles at the middle school (she missed 3 months due surgery complications). She never really caught up after missing so much in class instruction time. She is at the high school now and is doing great. My youngest daughter just finished 6th grade at the middle school and did remarkable. She had a great team of teachers that were available anytime I needed them or had questions. She is looking forward to the 7th grade. I am a parent who is very much involved in my children's education. When I had questions or concerns, I had no problem getting the administration to discuss it with me.
Hi, i know i'm not a parent, but I am a student, and I think my opinion should count... Carver is probably the worst school I have ever attended... ive been taken out of that school twice. The teachers dont care about students education, they just care if their shirts are tucked in, and if its not, they make a huge scene about it.. I think they need new principals, and younger blood for teachers.
I think that dress code is a little to stern. I also don't think the teachers communicate with the parents enough, it's pretty much none.
I have been very impressed with the middle school from the academics to athletics, I have nothing but good things to say.
Teachers and Admin Staff more concerned about the dress code that anything else. Too many silly rules that accomplish nothing. Teachers rarely available for after-school help. Math textbooks are horrible, Einstein would be confused using them. PTA and other meetings are unorganized jokes. Make sure you monitor your child's grades through the website, because you'll never hear from the teachers; unless your child breaks some silly rule, like not tucking in their shirt. The elementary schools in the county are excellent. Everyone likes the high school. But I've yet to meet a parent that likes anything about HCCMS - everyone just tries to make it through those 3 years...
As a graduate from Harris County Carver Middle School and currently a 10th grade student, I believe the HCCMS has the potential to become a great middle school; the teachers may teach, but how many students learn? It seems most of teachers at the middle school do more of inforcing the dress code then teaching or after school tutoring sessions. At the highschool however, teachers want students to stay after school to recieve extra help. My final verdict? HCCMS is a no. Harris County High is a yes.
As a 8th grade student here I personally think HCCMS is not as good of a school as it could be. There are too many rules that keep a lot of kids from being able to be individuals! The administration is very prejudice. I know this might not mean much coming from a student, but the rules are way too strict. If I had a choice of which school I could go to I definetly would'nt have choosen this school.
