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.

We have a lot of academics that other schools in our city do not have. We have a welding program, a culinary arts program, and a hospitality program. Many students from other schools apply to be accepted into those programs. Also we offer dance and theater that many others school do not offer at all!
