Welcome! George Washington Carver High School for The Sciences (GWCHSS) is dedicated to increasing the knowledge, skills and opportunities for every student.

And we know that when we help our students to develop self-direction and resilience, avoid risky behaviors and find help to overcome challenges, academic performance improves. This website provides resources for GWCHSS parents, advisory leaders, teachers and student leaders to join in and support that mission.

    Greetings Carver Families,

    Mandatory in-school testing will happen weekly for a random selection of staff and students in all reopened school buildings. In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing before school opens on March 22, 2021
