Grades 9-12

School Program

Program Information

Through a multi-disciplinary and integrated curriculum Carver students master the academic and practical standards required for successful college entry and career readiness. Our school culture is based on critical thinking (head), creative expression (heart), and wholesome action (hands). Our school environment is designed to develop thinking, creating, and healthy activity. We foster respect for the individuality of each student throughout the school. Our college preparatory curriculum is integrated with the arts. At Carver High School, students find a place to explore and experiment; every classroom is like a laboratory or art studio where students and teachers engage in academic inquiry and test their ideas.
