Discover This School

Dr. George Washington Carver Academic Elementary School is a hidden treasure in Bayview-Hunter's Point community. Every day, Carver’s staff come to school with compassion and dedication to each student’s academic and personal success. We stress academic excellence for all students, and want all students to 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.

Carver offers students a variety of enrichment opportunities, including an after-school program. Teachers working in the after-school program provide 1:1 tutoring and cooperative lessons, as well as implement programs such as “X - KIDZ” (a hands on science program) and Street Side Stories (a creative arts program). Other programs for parents include parent leadership classes, Family Math Night and Family Literacy Night. Historically, Carver has been an award-winning school, and we strive to maintain the excellence of ourselves and our achievers. Most recently, Principal Emmanuel Stewart was awarded San Francisco’s Mayor’s 2017-2018 Elementary Principal of the Year!
