Discover This School

Dr. George Washington Carver Academic Elementary School, a hidden treasure in Bayview-Hunter's Point, holds high expectations for a culturally diverse student population in a structured environment. We stress academic excellence for all students. Students become self-motivated, intrinsic learners by learning respect for themselves, others, and their surroundings. We guide them to perform to their best ability and to be socially prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. Students will leave us with a strong foundation in literacy, mathematics, and technology.

Our school offers students a variety of enrichment opportunities, including an after-school program. Teachers working in the after-school program provide tutoring and cooperative lessons, as well as implement programs such as Tree Frog (a science and nature program) and Imagine Bus (an arts and crafts program). Our staff come to school every day with an attitude of compassion and dedication to students' academic and personal success. Other programs for parents include parent leadership classes, Family Math Day, Family Literacy Days and Fatherhood Day. Historically, Carver has been an award-winning school, and we strive to maintain the excellence of ourselves and our achievers.
