I love that the principal and staff know each student by name. My son is in all of the honors classes and enjoys them very much. He is challenged but not overburdened; He is asked to be creative, to problem solve, to work creatively, and to... think! Couldn’t ask for a better High School experience. Love the new transportation opportunities this year as well!

Other schools crank the kids through their system of boring and formulaic classes stuffed full of students where they grind it out. I see how badly that turns out because I’m a Professor at UC Davis. I wanted my children to enjoy learning again so I sent them to Carver and now they’re happy to go to school and do their rigorous college prep classes. They’ll wind up with a semester of college credit and a 4.0. Classes are engaging and creative and students are encouraged to think on their own, unlike the unhappy stressed-out robots I get in my college classes.
Students are encouraged to create their own club to accommodate their interests and the interests of their peers. Teachers readily make their classrooms available. Anime club, student government, fashion club, GSA, feminist coalition, karaoke club, and comic book club are just a few of the clubs currently operating on campus!
