  • It is a give and take situation, the students can make the school better by taking some pride in it, and the teachers could improve the school by giving the students some basic respect.

  • I believe Carver will be a fantastic school if the students will buckle down and do the work they are capable of doing and leave the drama alone. CLASS OF 71

  • YOU CANT GET NO WHERE WITH THE ASST. PRINCIPAL MR. MOSS HE ONLY SEE THE TEACHERS SIDE AND HE BE KNOWING THEIR IN THE WRONG SO YOU HAVE TO GO A STEP HIGHER AND TALK TO MR. HUDSON WHO I FIND IS A FAIR MAN. I JUST HOPE HE DONT CHANGE. BECAUSE SOME OF THOSE TEACHERS ARE THERE JUST TO GET A PAY CHECK AND JUDGE CHILDREN FROM THE WAY THAT LOOK AT THEM. MRS FREEMAN IS ONE OF THEM. SHE TELL PEOPLE YOUR CHILD HAVE A PROBLEM AND YOU DONT KNOW ABOUT, WHAT KIND OF MESS IS THAT TO SAY ABOUT SOMEBODY CHILDS AND YOU DONT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THEIR HOME LIFE. SHE WILL COME ACROSS A YOUNG PARENT THAT DONT CARE ABOUT GOING TO JAIL AND WILL SHUT HER DOWN WHERE SHE STAND
