Carver Elementary

After one year and three weeks of construction, Carver Elementary School opened on Sept. 5. Our community generously supported a bond referendum in 2015 for a school that is needed to serve a growing population. Carver Elementary was projected to open with 594 students and now has 648. The new school is located near the intersection of Hwy 212 and Jonathan Carver Pkwy. in Carver. Carver Elementary is built for a 720-student capacity with the option of future expansion for up to 865 students. The two-story building includes 30 traditional classrooms designed around collaborative learning spaces. It has two full-size gymnasiums and a large cafeteria to accommodate future growth. The property shares a sports field and walking paths with the City of Carver. The estimated total cost for building the new elementary school is $33.21 million.

Additions to Clover Ridge & Victoria Elementary

Clover Ridge and Victoria Elementary schools were originally designed to accommodate expansions. As part of the 2015 referendum, the district needed that space to serve our growing communities. Each school received an additional six classrooms and Victoria’s lunch room was expanded. The added spaces were complete in early 2017.
