Principal's Greeting

Greetings Carver Community!

My first week as the leader of Carver Middle School was fantastic! I have several events scheduled this month to meet with the parents and stakeholders of the Carver community. As your Principal I intend to focus on two top priorities for our children- safety and success. By establishing a nurturing, student focused environment, our faculty and staff will achieve high academic standards for all students. I envision the Carver Middle School experience as one whereby students will be eager to attend because of challenging yet rewarding classroom instruction led by teachers who make learning fun. I am a champion of life-long learning and I cherish the opportunity to lead the students, staff and faculty while uniting with parents, community and district stakeholders for the benefit of our children.

Please contact me if you are interested in providing support to our learning community.

Anthony J. McLaurin, Ed.D.
