Inscription. Since 1936, Carver High School has been a source of pride, accomplishment and enthusiasm for Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. It was the first high school to serve African-American students outside the Winston-Salem city limits, who otherwise would have had to pay tuition to attend Atkins High School. The school opened near the present site in 1936, with Edward Everette Hill as principal. By the end of the 1967-1937 school year, it was named in honor of George Washington Carver. The first class of 18 students graduated in May 1939. During the 1940s, enrollment was high, and a larger facility was soon needed. Carver Consolidated School, a modern, well-equipped building served all twelve grades, was constructed in 1951. The school became Carver High School in 1971.
