This is an exceptional school. Being part of the Carver culture is truley an honor. I didn't mind going to school because I was attending Carver.

Carver Center is a great school. Its prime programs are exceptional. My son is excited to be led into the world of programming. He has learned VB, C++ and Java now, and he has determined to develop his own computer games. He has learned to build his own 3D trains and tanks that can be added into those

This is a great school. My daughter transferred from a magnet school and she continued on in their visual arts program. They taught her very well at CCAT.

When I got my acceptance letter to Carver I was thrilled and glad to be part of Carver's culture. After a couple weeks I realized how much I hated that school.

Diverse enrollment, where everyone is respected for their own gifts and God given talents. Middle school was so difficult emotionally. It is nice to see a school that just doesn't talk about respect but walks the walk! It truly is the content of character that counts. Principal Steele and Assistant

The art department is wonderful. The art curriculum is demanding, but student growth is observable throughout four years. Parents ask me all the time how I find the "academic" side of Carver. My observation is that if a subject is inherently connected to a prime (like English is to the Creative Writing
... Read more magnet), the teachers are strong. The weakest department--in my experience--is math. My child did not have every math teacher in the school, but s/he had four. One of the four was halfway decent. The math department needs an overhaul. They are losing one of their best science teachers this year because of the budget, but almost all of my child's science teachers were decent. The foreign language department is disappointing if your child comes from Sudbrook Magnet Middle School, where the program is sensational. Incoming 9th graders should find a niche quickly and attend events at the school, as the "community" is school-based with everyone living in different communities. Read less

Students at Carver Center are busy on their primes in addition to their excellent academics, but they seem to handle it well. Many Carver graduates attribute their ability of smooth transition to college life to the busy life at Carver. Carver parents are passionate and very involving in all aspects

I haven't seen any other parents are so willing to donate their time, effort, money to their school. They wouldn't send their kids to any other school after experiencing the Carver life. Read less
