Carver is not your fairytale dream school,but it's high school so I made the best of it.Carver has amazing teachers and administrators.I haven't had a teacher who never had my best interest at heart,same with the administrators.Carver has a great atmosphere of school spirit.As soon as you walk the the doors of Carver you will automatically sense school pride.The teachers at Carver let it be know that they will not hold your hand,and their class won't be a walk in the park.My three years at Carver Senior high I was apart of the football team,Concert choir,Honors choir, Mu Alpha Theta, and The Grandiose Gentlemen.Carver is a great school,and I am very happy to soon call it my Alma Mater.

Coming from a middle school in a small town, I was accustomed to teachers actually teaching and caring about the education of students. However, when I arrived to Carver freshman year, things would change. The teachers are lazy. That is my biggest pet peeve. The thing I like about Carver is that it is fun for the most part.

I am currently a junior at my school, and it is a bitter sweet feeling. I am just ecstatic to be graduating from high school but I have had some incredibly good experiences at this school! I will definitely miss this school and staff when I graduate next year. I am most definitely coming back to come and visit my school because I will miss it so much.
