“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.

Wofford students spill secrets to college success
Students in Carver Middle School’s AVID elective met March 9 with a group of African American male students from Wofford College. Carver students had a chance to ask these young men anything they wanted about college life, from choosing a major, to how to spend your free time. Students were very excited about college life and demonstrated an impressive list of schools they hoped to attend– from Stanford, to Yale, to Julliard. Maybe a few are now convinced to put Wofford on their list as well.
