About George Washington Carver


Named after the African American inventor, George Washington Carver, Carver has been in existence in the city of Baytown since the 1940’s in either the form of a high school or as an elementary school.


Open during a time in America when children of different races were segregated, Carver was the high school for the African American students. The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s changed this permanently throughout our nation and in our city, Baytown.


As time went on, Carver became an elementary school, endured name and location changes, but one thing remained: the community of Baytown held great pride in the faculty and students of Carver.

About our school

One can not move forward unless they understand from where they came. This timeline is meant to celebrate the long history of Carver–as it existed during times of great change in America and during those times, the focus was on providing children an education. In this celebration, we also recognize that our greatest gifts are our diversity and the fact that so many Baytown residents have completed some portion of their education in a school named aptly after a gentleman who valued learning above all things.
