Carver Middle School is an academic magnet school that follows the Middle Years Programme (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, geometry, science, and world language.
Each grade level participates in thematic units which bring together elements of each course of study. Sixth graders complete an in-depth study of George Washington Carver, seventh graders conduct 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.
We are a community of lifelong learners with unlimited potential who welcome diversity, embrace challenge, strive for excellence, and celebrate personal growth for every member of the Carver Middle School family.
Carver Middle School is committed to empowering all students to be inquirers and to meet high academic standards in a nurturing, enriching, supportive environment where individual differences and talents are respected. At Carver, academic excellence is promoted and lifelong learning is strongly encouraged. Critical, creative, and higher level thinking skills are developed, while connections among all disciplines are provided, and students are empowered to become productive citizens of the global community.
