Open Quote My daughter is thriving at Carver Middle School. I can't say enough about the teachers, I've been very impressed with the curriculum, the use of technology to make learning easier and more effective and the steps taken by the teachers and administrators to make the school a safe and nurturing environment. I was anxious for my child going into middle school, leftover feelings of unease from my middle school days. I was quickly assured as I see a spark in her that I never have before, better grades than ever and a willingness to take learning more seriously. I owe this to Carver Middle School Close Quote

Open Quote Some teachers are unfairly disciplining some students for every little minor infraction but letting other kids get by. Seems like some discrimination might be going on here. I had high hopes for my child here but now I cannot wait to get my child out of this school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
