The students and administrative staff have a close connection with their students. Students are always finding ways to add more to the school. There is always something to join in the school whether it be JROTC extracurricular activities to regular highschool activities like sports, yearbook, newspaper club etc... The staff listens to our complaints and continuously finds ways to try and fix those complaints. The atmosphere of the school is fun and welcoming and there are new things to experience every day.
This is my fourth year at Carver Military Academy. While it was not my first choice school, I think I made the best decision in coming here. The reason that I appreciate the school is because it holds the military model. That is what makes the school stand out from other schools. I overall like the environment of the school. While the school is very secluded, the location is very calm and safe. Relating to academics and staff, both of them are exceptional. While most of the teachers that were in the school when I first came in have left, the school has brought in great new staff. They just keep getting better and better, and I appreciate that. The school cares for its students. That is something that most schools do not show.
