From the Principal

{title}
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.

Vision, Values, and Viking Pride
Donning a pair of blue and gold sunglasses, District Seven Superintendent, Dr. Russell Booker told a packed auditorium at the Chapman Cultural Center on April 17th that “the future for the district is so bright, we need to wear shades.”
During his 4th annual State of the District address to the community, Booker provided a summary of Spartanburg Seven’s progress of the past five years and pointed to new opportunities on the horizon. Citing the district’s rating of “Excellent” on the 2014 SC Report Card, the tremendous success of 7Ignites and being one of only a few districts in the state to be fully digital, Booker applauded D7’s entrepreneurial and innovative spirit and challenged the community to continue to embrace programs and initiatives worthy of a 21st century education.

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. The course is designed for students who need support in order to succeed in Advanced College Prep (Honors and ODYSSEY-Honors) courses, the most challenging courses the school district offers. In AVID, students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and questioning, receive academic assistance to help them succeed in their advanced courses, and participate in college-readiness activities. Carver is in the process of implementing a school-wide focus on the AVID principles.
