Principal's Welcome Message


Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
My name is Raul Ramirez and I would like to welcome our students and families back to Carver Middle School for the 2022-2023 academic school year. As the new principal of Carver Middle School, I am appreciative and humbled to have been given the opportunity to serve the students and families in the South Los Angeles area. My priority this school year will be to provide a high-quality education for your children in a safe, clean and positive learning environment.
As the principal my role this school year will be to observe, support, and work collaboratively with all Carver students, parents and staff to continue to build on the strengths of the school and identify ways to continue to grow and move the school forward for all. This will be my 16th year as an educator at LAUSD and I myself, am a product of LAUSD, I attended 96th street elementary, Drew Middle School, Fremont High School, and then went on to attend U.C. Santa Barbara. After college I decided to return to LAUSD and give back to our community and serve our students of South Los Angeles. When I was growing up in South Central Los Angeles I remember the positive impact my teachers, counselors and school leaders had on me, they made me believe in myself, encouraged me to take risks, and inspired me to serve others. As I join the Cougar family, I ask that you join me in encouraging your children to believe in themselves and dream big as we prepare them to move on to high school and college. Yes college!! I believe in establishing a culture of respect and high expectations for all in our school community including students, parents, all staff, and administrators. To promote a positive school culture, I am asking that we model at all times the Cougar Expectations: CHARACTER, COMMITMENT, and COMMUNITY.
Mr. Raul Ramirez
