Would not recommend this school esp. for those parents that take bullying serious...The new principal needs to be let go.

I love Carver Elementary because of its collaborative classroom. My son is on the Autism spectrum and the key to success for him was the working together of the regular ed teacher and the special ed teacher. He remained in a regular classroom setting. The principal, the parent liaison, the teacher and student assistants, and all of the staff worked together to everything possible to make every student successful. The also encourage the parents by letting know that are apart of their child's education. A grateful parent!

I love Carver elementary because its a great school. One of the things I rember most as parent of a student at that school is that the principle would stand in the hall way every morning and would personally meet amd greet each one one those students and call them by name as they passed her always with a smile on her face. Mrs. Spencer has done alot to improve carver and make it a better school.The teachers are all onboard with each other and all work well together.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
