High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place.
Carver Center for Arts and Technology is a public magnet high school located in Towson in Baltimore County, Maryland. In any given year, about 800 students attend, and typical class size is just under 200. The Principal of the school is Karen E. H. Steele. Carver was originally a segregated high school for black students. It was closed and re-opened in 1993 as a magnet school with Dr. Mary Carey as principal. Carver Center was named after George Washington Carver, a man of many talents, in recognition of the talented people within.
Carver's magnet programs feature nine specialty areas, or primes acting, culinary, business, carpentry, cosmetology, dance, design and production, literary arts, vocal music, and visual arts. The visual art prime is further divided into concentrations, including drawing and painting, multimedia, photography, sculpture, and telemedia. Theresa McDaniel, a painting and drawing teacher, has been nominated five times for the distinguished teachers in the arts award, and won it once. Photography teacher Carrol Cook, and Visual Arts chair Joe Giordano have both been nominated twice but neither have ever won.
In 2004 Carver not only had the most visual art entrants in the national art competition ARTS, which is a national art competition for high school students grades 9-12 who excel at Dance, Film and Video, Jazz, Music, Theater, Photography, Visual Arts, Voice, and Writing but had the most entrants from any one school in the US. Carver does not have a football team however, it still holds an annual homecoming dance after a homecoming sports game. The school's mascot is the wildcat. Female teams, such as the girls' volleyball team, are referred to as Lady Wildcats. The varsity golf team won an award for having the highest of any of the fall sports teams in Baltimore County.
Carver Center for Arts and Technology is a high school with a personalized learning environment, which includes small learning communities where teachers and students integrate academic and occupational classes as a way to enhance real world relevance and still maintain high academic standards.
