Terrible school, students are violent and out of control. Teachers are treated like trash by the principals hence the high turnover rate, which is a concern for parents because when teachers leave their replacements are low paid long term substitutes without any certifications to actually teach the subjects. Palm beach school district just turns a blind eye to all of this and then wonders why they are losing so many students, teachers, etc. to private and charter schools.

Carver is one of the lowest rated schools in the state of florida. The turnover rate for teachers is too high, over 40 teachers left in one school year. which should raise eyebrows about the conditions at this campus. The student behavior is absolutely horrible, they curse out the teachers and get into fights every week, the school often goes on lockdown. carver is unsafe, the test scores are worse than almost every school in the state and should be shut down like Odyssey middle was.

If I could give this school zero stars, I would. The behavior of the children is absolutely horrible. They are rude, disrespectful, refuse to listen to the teacher, curse, and physically fight with one another. They get sent to the office and are returned to class after a sit down and nothing changes. It's no wonder why this school has a low rating.

the school district of palm beach county needs to held accountable in finding out why teachers are so unhappy with being at this school. my son attends this school and he said that some of his classes had teachers just leave out of nowhere. he said his reading class alone had multiple teachers come and go before half the year was over, he said one was in there for about a week before he left and never came back. the turnover is very high here compared to other middle schools in palm beach county and according to the staff survey this has one of the lowest staff satisfaction rates of any school in palm beach county. it said teachers are generally very unhappy being here. the teachers are the ones who are teaching our students and we need to make sure there is stability here instead of having our kids taught by many different teachers a year. if teachers are this unhappy with being at this school, especially compared to other schools in the district, then its a symptom that there is something seriously wrong with the way they are being treated or other serious problems that are not being addressed. i mean even the principal left before the year was over.

When I here on the first day of school on the 6th grade, I already came with a depressed viewpoint. On the last day of school on 8th grade, my views were incredibly warped. A sizable chunk left during the summer after 6th grade; most went to charter schools or enrolled in choice programs at Boca schools. The infrastructure of the school is crumbling. We've experienced days where the electricity system broke. Compared to other local middle schools, this school is the most disorganized. I can't even count the times an ambulance has been called for incidents! Don't even ask for high school preparation. Only a few local schools showed up, the rest were charter schools. But Don Estridge had there high school choice event during the day, so students could be available. One major tip is don't eat the school lunch. The options are limited, and the good food is in the long line. There's been a few occasions where the chips I bought were stale. You're basically a prisoner here. They lock the bathrooms everyday. And even though the bathrooms are locked most of the time, they still aren't clean. Your bus WILL be late numerous times. If you have serious quirks, some people will go out of their way to alienate you. This is Delray's only middle school, so it's best to leave Delray for middle school. If you're stuck here for the 3 year ride, plan for high school well. Atlantic is better only for the IB program. Boca High and Spanish river are over capacity so that leaves Olympic Heights and West Boca ( better to go South instead of North). It'll be easier to get in the choice programs there, plus the schools provide are full of replenished resources.
