Carver Center, Home of GEM (Gifted Education Midland)


Carver Center is a unique campus offering one of the finest gifted and talented programs in the state of Texas. The program was originally created by former Carver Principal Patricia Maurer and former Midland ISD Superintendent Dr. Joseph Baressi. Subsequent principals, superintendents and school board members continue to support the program because of the extraordinary successes of the students.

In 2011, Carver Center became a full-time elementary school for exclusively for gifted and talented students from 2nd to 6th Graders. In 2015, Carver opened to 1st Graders as well. Improvements include the construction of a full-purpose library, relocating and upgrading the computer lab, replacing and enlarging playground areas, and installing wireless networking in all areas.

We continue to update the curriculum as we honor our treasured past but embrace the future. Each grade level follows in a theme-based study in the four core content areas, focusing on in-depth research and projects.

Key to any successful school is the support of parents. Carver Center is grateful for the opportunity to serve with extraordinary parents in providing for our children.
