I went to this for one year, one year only. I hated it so much that I wanted to write a book to vent about it. If I could I would rate this school a zero. You know why? Not many will hear this in a review, but the school had the streaming of obscenity that teachers seemed not to notice. As you will see in other reviews it talk about cherry picking - picking high grade students- what they don't tell you is they don't pick their students very well. For teachers and all people that don't know about carver and people in carver, the kids at carver and teachers cussed, talked about porn, teachers not being aware, distractions like crazy; students distracting me and other students in class, bully a lot, discrimination; students using racial slurs, teachers that don't really like their job; which I would prefer them to for other students that are still there, it put me under tremendous stress; the students would call me buck head and nerd,and etc... I can't say anymore , there is much more, than that because I'm running, but I'm running out of characters. All I have to say is don't go to this school if you want to be bullied and desensitized to violence a crude stuff.
George Washington Carver Middle School is a great school to attend. The learning skills of these students is unbelievable. Carver does have "groups" but it's not like a bullying group or anything just like a group of friends to hang with. Carver is a great school for your children to attend. Also I do not believe that there is any bullying going on that the teachers don't know about. There are constantly teachers and staff members in the hall. Students will love Carver and I'm sure you would too! Come visit our website www.carver.tulsaschools.org!
I am an eighth grader at carver middle school and I have really enjoyed my last three years here. This school is not for everyone, but for many kids I think it is a great fit. I have had teachers all three years that really try to get kids to be interested in the subject. They offer a wide variety of challenging classes. I think this school is a really great match for the right personality.
I am very disappointed with this school. My son has been enduring repeated episodes of bullying and others taking his things and the teachers so far have done nothing but give him 75 pushups to do in gym for missing his uniform because it was taken that same day. The teacher was told this before giving the pushups. Other similar incidents have occurred with my son and other kids as well. Some kids swear and talk obscenely. Some have been heard soliciting inappropriate behaviors from others in the hallway. Academics are OK, but not much better than other schools. My other son goes to a public school in the area and is in advanced classes and has way less trouble with bullying or other problems.
Well I am a 7th grader going to carver middle school.I have been to al l the summer events so far and i think the school is strict which is a good thing and the teachers tell it how it is. This school is a very succesful school and i am really happy to be going there.
Carver is a good school so far as academics but some of the teachers and staff are not held accountable for the way they talk to the children. As a parent I feel like certain children were able to get away with some things while others were not. Academically I recommend carver but some of the teachers and staff need to be checked. One of the janitors was allowed to take things from the children.
I am a sixth grader at carver and let me tell you, some of the boys there need to learn a thing or two about manners. Risque is not an appropriate word for these boys. The teachers just watch! Even though I love the acedemics and that it's bully free, these teachers need an attitude adjustment!!!
I'm an 8th grader and carver is ok but teachers have bad attitudes and students are bully-ish.Janitors and teacher staff also take your things if you buy from the vending machines or if they see your cell phone.Teachers pick on the 'good kids' and barely say anything to the 'bad ones' also they have students there that have repeated grades and have football players playing with grades below a c average. And no I do not reccommend carver at all...and by the way they let every single athletic student into Booker T. Washington and some of them had 2.0 gpa when your supposed to have at least a 2.5 gpa to get into Booker T. Most of the students with good grades did not get into BTW. BTW is not as good as there were if they let students in that do not have the academic standards.
I think Carver is a pretty good school. I'm currently an 8th grader there. But I feel like they don't give you the chance to express your individuality. If you try to wear out of uniform socks, jeans that aren't blue (on the few jeans days that we have), or things such as arm warmers you are forced to take them off. But the teachers actually care about your grades. They aren't just there to baby sit you. But there are teachers that I think should be fired because of their terrible attitudes.
this is my second year at carver and being here has been really great so far though they are way too uptight on uniforms but oh well but yeah the teachers are rreally good way and they have a great way of teaching and were probly a great group of kids cause its not like we have fights every day but they seperate the grades way too much its a good school though.
Tulsa, Ok Carver Middle School has did me a great job of unsatisfactory. In this year, the students that attend Carver temd to be very bully-ish. I have had a hard time connecting techers. Take things into consideration.
I love Carver. My son is in his 2nd year there and has gorwn so much. Academics are first no matter what. They have increased the requirements to play sports here, your child can carry nothing lower than a C to be eligible. That is not a C average, no grade lower than a C. If you set the standard high the kids will rise to meet tham and Carver if proof of that.
my child loves going to carver....it has a very good academic program
Carver is a very good school.They make learning fun like dressing up for black history month and more. I highly recommend this school.
I'm a 6th grader on the dance team at carver, i really like it because there is sytem of give and take because if you have any grades below a c in any class you do not get to participate in sportign events. The ciriculum is awesome and the teachers are too. And our school facility is fairly new and is always clean. Go Wildcats!!!!
Carver is a good school they care more about our grades there instead of the athletics progam. If you are not keepimg your grades they will not let you play. And I think it is very important about the grades if you want to be someone you must at all times keep your grades up to fulfill your dreams in life!
I am a current student in 8th grade, and I think Carver is a great school. I enjoy the curriculum (but what student actually enjoys school?), and the teachers are very supportive toward students. The teachers actually care, and I think it is an overall good school. So bottom line, good school go here if you live in Tulsa OK.
I am an alumni of Carver Middle School. My only complaint is that the kids do a lot of projects. I think its a great school. My son is a sixth grader at Carver this year. I would recommend Carver.
The academic programs are good, and this school really prepares students for the challenges of high school. It provides a diverse environment, and forces students to open up to a variety of different people. The teachers are caring and supportive. I would recommend this school to anyone who asked me about it.
