I hate carved middle school there sloppy and very disturbing school. They also have rats and bugs that come inside the building and go everywhere, if you get D-Hall (Detetion) and you don't go, you will get suspended for a week, so I recommend that you should not go there for your goods .

Carver Middle School embraces AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) principles to promote a career and college readiness culture and STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) pedagogy. Students participate in the fine arts through chorus, band, orchestra and award winning art instruction. Additionally, 7th and 8th graders have the opportunity to participate in football, basketball, wrestling and volleyball. Unrelated to this review, this website lists Spartanburg Freshman academy as the nearest middle school. However, it is not a middle school but the freshman campus of the High School. The nearest middle school is E. P. Todd School.
