Principal’s Welcome


Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in learning more about G.W. Carver High School of Engineering, or Carver E&S.  We are a STEM-based magnet school in Philadelphia that serves 900 students in grades 7-12 from all over the city of Philadelphia.  Founded in 1979, our mission is to create a rigorous and supportive learning environment that leads to success in college and beyond.

Our aim for this website is to give you a glimpse into the work our incredible students are doing.  For a quick overview, please check out our Points of Pride or School Profile.  For a more in-depth view of our school, please take some time to read our News Stories.  I think you will be impressed with our students!

If you are new to our school, come for a visit!  We hold student-led tours every Tuesday and Thursday at 8:30AM and would love for you to experience our engaging school culture.

Again, welcome to Carver E&S.  We are excited you are here to learn more.  If there is anything I can do, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly.
