Inquirer: Top city HS gets funds to fuel expansion

By Kristen Graham, Inquirer Staff Writer

One of the the city’s top high schools just got more support for its newest venture, a middle school launching in the fall.

Carver High School for Engineering and Science, which is expanding to serve 120 seventh and eighth grade students in September, was awarded $200,000 from the Philadelphia School Partnership.

That’s on top of a $147,000 grant PSP, a deep-pocketed nonprofit, already awarded to Carver to fund planning for the middle school.

The newest award will support more planning as the school develops, Principal Ted Domers said.
