Points of Pride

Special classes (Music, Art, Physical Education, Computers, and Library) are primarily taught in English. Spanish literacy is maintained in grades 2-6.
- Carver is proud of the diversity of its students with families having heritage from many cultures and countries. Carver’s parents are very supportive of their children’s education.
