I attended Carver Voc. Tech from 86-90. I was very satisfied with the challenge I received from my teachers from Music to the S.O.P trade (business) the teachers that were there at the time made sure you learned what they were teaching before you moved on to the next level in class. I appreciate the enthusiasm the teachers had to teach us the "students". They not only imparted knowlege book wise ,but also how to be productive adults in the work world and everyday life. I say thanks to the administration and teachers of Carver Voc. Tech for being a part of my life.
