Thank you for taking an interest in visiting the George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science.

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.

At Carver High School, students work in the Sam Mazza Garden, which is an outdoor classroom: Nature is our textbook. The garden is a place for our community to cultivate nourishment and inspiration.

Our goal is to give our students the resources and confidence to answer the question:
