“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.

August 2017 Eclipse - Are you Ready?

August 2017 Eclipse - Are you Ready?
The clock is counting down to the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Spartanburg County and parts of surrounding counties will be in the path of totality for this awe-inspiring eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017. The rest of the Eastern United States will see only a partial eclipse. This spectacular event will engulf Spartanburg at 2:39PM (EST) in a dark shadow for around two minutes, giving observers a once in a lifetime celestial experience!
A total solar eclipse is when the Sun is covered entirely by the Moon, the sky deeply darkens, the temperature cools, and the Sun’s corona becomes visible. To find out the exact time of the start and end of the eclipse and totality for your specific area, use the following resource:NASA Eclipse 2017
To help you prepare your students (and yourself) for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, Spartanburg County Schools is happy to share these resources. Read More

Wofford students spill secrets to college success

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.
