“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” - George Washington Carver
Carver Middle School is on the move and making great things happen! If you’ve been following our success, you know we’re well on our way to commanding the attention of the world or, at the very least, the Upstate of South Carolina!
Indeed, Dr. George Washington Carver would be immensely proud of the school that bears his name and the many accomplishments that signal our commitment to inspiring and equipping students for success in a competitive global society. Carver is definitely on the map - as an AVID school (Advancement Via Individual Determination) we were recognized as a National Demonstration School, meaning that educators from across the country, who are interested in maximizing the AVID curriculum, will be pointed to Carver Middle School in Spartanburg, South Carolina! To put that in perspective, we’re one of only 150 AVID schools in the nation to be selected as a National Demonstration School.

Well, 10 year-old Ty’Kerian Walker was banking on that happening when she entered a SC Department of Education competition called Read Your Way to the Big Game. In a surprise assembly at Pine Street School today, it was announced Ty’Kerian is the grand prizewinner of 4 tickets to the Clemson vs. Carolina game. To be eligible for the contest, students in kindergarten through eighth grade are required to read six books. As one of the two state winners, selected from more than 50,000 entrants, Ty’Kerian will be treated to sideline passes before the game and pictures with the mascots from Clemson and Carolina. As part of the big reveal the Clemson Tiger joined in the fun at Pine Street, as students and staff celebrated Ty’kerian’s win and wagered their bets on the victor of this weekend’s infamous college rivalry.
