About Carver:

(from Wikipedia) George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology, also known just as the Carver Center for Arts and Technology is a Baltimore County-wide public magnet high school originally established in 1992 as one of three geographically spread technology high schools, (others established earlier in 1970 were Western and Eastern Technical High Schools – [original names]). The Central Technical High School, was located in Towson, the county seat in Baltimore County, Maryland, United States. In any given year, about 800 students attend, and typical class size is just under 20. The high school is primarily known for its eleven “primes”, for which students must apply in order to be accepted to the school. The school is distinguished in many categories, mainly its many art achievements.
