New Carver High School opens its doors

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Students and faculty have been waiting for a new Carver High School for the last eight years, and they finally got a look at what millions of taxpayer dollars bought them.

An official ribbon cutting was held over the weekend, and it was a standing room only crowd as former Superintendent Susan Andrews introduced everyone to the new Carver High School.

Other members from the city government and school board were there as well, but the real focus was on the alumni, students, and Principal Christopher Lindsey.

"Every classroom has a Smart Board," Lindsey said. "Every classroom will have what they call an Elmo. Every classroom has the ability to have all the kids online at one time and not be knocked off. The wireless capabilities we have are beyond my imaginations as well as any facility in the school district."

The new school can hold up to 1,250 students and will open August 13.
