I went to this school when I was younger i graduation from there. I have 3 kids and my oldest daughter graduated from Carver before we moved over Southside. The staff at Carver some of which I was attended is still there 20 some years later is excellent and supported they are there for you when you need them. They treat your child like family they make sure they get it done and to suceed in life. I love my Carver Peanut Family this school is awesome.

As my child attended this school, he did so much improvement that I would tilt my hat to the principal, teachers, and staffs for thanking them. My son might has special needs but he loves this school and everyone. This is a wonderful school.

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.
