  • About Dr. George Washington Carver Elementary 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. 

  • After School Programs

    Carver’s after-school program is in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco. It’s a Beacon Program that provides enrichment activities, physical fitness activities, tutoring and homework support, family engagement, vision screening and dental screening. The focus is to help Carver students develop the values, skills, attitudes, character and behavior that will enable them to succeed in life.
