Carver Middle School is an academic magnet school which follows the Middle Years Program (International Baccalaureate) framework. Students must apply and be screened by our school Selection Committee for admission. Students are selected based on grades, test scores, attendance, behavior, and teacher recommendation.
The MYP program encourages students to obtain a global perspective through the courses taught, both core academic and elective offerings. Students receive instruction in English/Language Arts, Geography and United States History, Science, and Mathematics. In the Elective offerings, students receive instruction in World Languages, Instrumental and Vocal Music, Visual Art, Technology Education and Consumer Science, and Physical Education. In addition to the core academic courses offered students may receive high school credit in algebra and geometry, science, and world language.
Each grade level participates in thematic (MYP) units which bring together elements of each course of study. Sixth grade completes an in-depth study of George Washington Carver, seventh grade conducts a shelter building unit as well as holding a joint program with our sister school in Tiberias, Israel, and eighth graders participate in a boat building unit as well as an in-depth study of the Civil War.
