Since the beginning of my freshmen year the school was very welcoming. The school was very easy to get around. I found my classes pretty easy. The people around are very nice and fun to be around. My teachers so far made learning fun and easy to remember. The clubs at carver are fun too. They are very active and interesting. The art class is fun too. You get to sculpt, draw, and paint. The teacher makes it easy and fun. Our band makes our school known . That’s just shows how good our band is at carver. My school also has a program for the kids who just might want to go the the army. The program is called JROTC. Which is one of my classes. The people around when I’m in that class seem to enjoy it. We march and do things that are some what like the army. After all, I find myself going to Carver High School for the rest of my high school year. I love my school.

Hello, my name is TaLia Alston a senior at Carver High School and what I like most about my high school is how education is key. Many opportunities are given for our seniors because they want to see their students strive in life. The opportunities that are given are senior empowerment days which take place on Wednesday’s. With senior empowerment you are offered help with applying to colleges, completing your fafsa, applying and writing essays for scholarships. Our senior counselor sends remind messages out everyday about opportunities of college recruitment fairs and scholarships online that can benefit us once we go forward into our life. My school shows the honor ship and authority of how they want the students of my school to succeed and have a great education in life whether it’s traditional or stem classes. A way to better my school is by bringing students together to take knowledge of the opportunities offered at Carver.
I am still currently a high school student at George Washing Carver High School. My recent years at Carver High School, have been nothing but marvelous. The teacher show and prove that they actually care for their students , and want them to go be something in life. Basically being successful. I can tell you now the work here is not easy, but it is preparing you for college for the most part as they are telling us. Therefore, my overall experience with Carver High School on a scale 1-10, it would be a 10.
