Greetings Wildcat Parents and Students!
It is an honor for me to return as Principal of George Washington Carver Middle School for the 2014-2015 school year. Our middle school philosophy is deeply rooted in tradition and the legacy of our namesake, Dr. George Washington Carver. By providing an innovative educational environment, we are strongly committed to equipping our students for success in a competitive global society. George Washington Carver Middle School embraces AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) principles to promote career and college readiness culture and STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) pedagogy. AVID and STEM educational approaches infuse collaboration, inquiry, communication and critical thinking to provide hands-on authentic learning experiences.

D7 Selected to Join the Nation’s League of Innovative Schools
Spartanburg School District Seven has been named one of 11 new members accepted into the League of Innovative Schools, by Digital Promise, a national, independent nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to accelerate innovation in education.
As the only district from South Carolina tapped for membership this fall, District Seven was selected from a competitive and national pool of applicants based on its leadership, evidence of results, innovative vision for learning, and commitment to collaboration. The League now includes 57 districts and education agencies that collectively represent more than 3 million students across 27 states.
“This is a tremendous honor that certainly underscores our goal to be a model School District in the Southeast and the most innovative school district in South Carolina,” said District Seven Superintendent, Dr. Russell Booker. “Our journey to this juncture is directly tied to our dedication to enhance the educational experience of our students. Our one-to-one digital initiative, 7 Ignites, has placed a mobile learning device in the hands of every District 7 student from grades 3 through 12. The result is a level of student engagement that is exciting to see and an opportunity to accelerate our children’s ability to harness the power of technology and digital learning.”
