How will you engage the world?

G.W. Carver Country Store

Dear Carver Families,

The season of giving is upon us and the Carver Gardening class has been hard at work all through the harvest!  Please consider handmade items from our gardens and classrooms.  

We are offering several types of preserves, tea, bath pods, and blank note cards designed by Carver students.  We are also offering ornaments, including beautiful seashells knitted by our dear principal, Dr. Alessandri! Also available, GWC ball caps and homemade vanilla donated by a parent.  You can be sure that vanilla will be appearing in upcoming baked good from the garden, it's divine!

For a complete list of available items and prices see the order form. You may fill out the form and e-mail it to or print it and put it in her box in the office.  Orders will be filled the next day and available for pick up after school. Photos available on Carver's Facebook Page.

Mme Fain says, "It's a good idea to take care of yourself too!"

Happy Holidays,
Jennifer Fain & the Gardening Class

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:
