Carver High School taking shape, construction on schedule

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) - In just about eight months the students that attend Carver High school will have a brand new school.

It is said to be one of the most technologically advanced schools in the state of Georgia.  Equipped with an impressive foyer, a massive cafeteria and a capacity to fit nearly 1,500 students the new Carver High School is a big improvement from the old school.

"We've got some painting going on, they are finishing the gym floor and they are working on the finish touches for the school so that it will be open in time for the new school year," Valerie Fuller said.

Fuller says the project is on track and is expected to be handed over to the school district this summer. Project Engineer Duane Ellis says the only problems they have encountered so far is rain.

"We are pushing through it, we are working hard everything is coming together it's really a team effort we know how important this project is to the community in Columbus," Ellis said.

"Wireless Internet and Smartboards in every single classroom, a big difference from what you saw in the old Carver."

Each student will have their own Netbook making paper books almost out dated. As for construction, the 37 million dollar project has something to show. The athletic complex is almost complete, and even some of the classrooms are almost done except for the tiles along the floor.

"This would not have been possible had it not been for the 2009 SPLOST, this is just one of the promises made promises kept, the new Carver High is coming into fruition," Fuller said.
