Notes from the Principal
George Washington Carver Elementary serves children from Pre-Kindergarten Three to Fifth grade. G.W. Carver is designated as a Title I school. This distinction is based on the percentage of Free and Reduced Meals (81%) received by our students. As a result, G.W. Carver is the beneficiary of both state and federal money to help supplement the county funded budget.
Chesapeake Public Charter School Open Application Period
The mission of Chesapeake Public Charter School is to offer each student a unique educational experience within a reflective learning community. Through a modified school calendar, multi-age students in small class settings will engage in a curriculum of meaningful connections and diverse perspectives. This engagement will be achieved using technology, the environment, the arts and community resources. This school will provide a safe, orderly, caring and joyful reflective atmosphere in which respect for all is evident and the outcome of empowered, self directed learners is expected. Our goal is to build a solid foundation for higher education and the desire to continue learning, growing sharing and contributing in multiple capacities throughout each person’s life.
The open enrollment period for the 2014-2015 school year starts on January 1st & closes January 31st
