|Principal:||Mr. Ronald Peart|
Ask the principal about the Carver Learning Community and he’ll tell you it’s ‘The Smart Choice For Smart Kids.’ He can back it up with proof. Carver students are making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). The school has also been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Skillman Foundation’s Good Schools: Making the Grade Initiative. The money will be used to improve the school with a new media lab that will feature wireless technology plus Carver is in the running for another Good Schools Grant.
‘Smart’ is the word the Carver learning community lives by. For them, it’s the place to be because the children are taught in a loving, nurturing, and safe school environment which enhances learning. The student population is diverse, so while the children learn their math, language skills, science and social studies, they also learn about other cultures and how acceptance is universal. That helps them to become more well-rounded individuals. Carver also offers a dedicated bilingual program.
To further enhance the efforts to produce Smart children, Carver offers services at the school that help the teaching process such as Social Work, speech and language pathology sessions and an on-site psychologist. Add challenging extra curricular activities such as the Chess Club, The World in Motion/Engineering Society of Detroit, Girl Scouts, corrective reading, and instrumental music that help round out the students academically and add to their overall development. If parents are in need, the school can put them in touch with several services such as legal assistance and the Judson Family Development Center. At Carver, their Smart parents also get involved in the children’s learning activities and get tips from the school to help them become a more active participant in the education of their child.
Partners from the community also contribute to the success of Carver students by providing them with enriching experiences that add to the core learning and help them to think about their future education. All of these contribute to student achievement and progress.
At Carver, the focus is on helping children to succeed and prosper in life. The daily goal is to use every tool available to help students improve their academic performance and use their brains to become the smart student they can be. Give us a call so that your child can become a Carver Learning Community Smart Kid!!
