Carver-Hill School Classroom Activities

When Carver-Hill High school opened it had 12 classrooms, 18 teachers, a gym and auditorium. “It was hands-on. The teachers were hands-on. They’d push and push you. I don’t think I’d be where I am or what I am today if it wasn’t for those teachers”, are a common statements made by many Carver-Hill School students.

Many of the classrooms and teachers were connected doing the life of the school.  The science classroom, Mr. Samuel A. Allen;  the business classroom, Mrs. Caroline Allen;  library, Miss Lucille Hawkins Butler;  gym, Mr. Elliott Freeman; home economics, Mrs. Lillian Davis and industrial acts, Mr. Harold Powell.

The Carver-Hill cafeteria served as a multi-purpose room and is currently the room where staff, alumni and friends of Carver-Hill High School come together for  Carver-Hill School Annual Alumni Fellowship Night as part of May Day Week activities.  The gym also served as the auditorium.  All class graduations where held in the gym/auditorium.


 The Carver-Hill School staff provided a number of school activities doing it’s history that enhanced the lives of students. The activities were associated with both sports and academics.  Carver-Hill High School activities reflected over into the everyday lives of former students.  Many alumni who perform well in our society today and over the years say that the joys, hard knocks and work from Carver-Hill High School life played an important part in their success and helping them solve their problems in our society today.

While football and basketball were the major two activities, a host of other activities were provided:

Miss Imogene Monroe was the school’s first Miss Carver-Hill for 1954-55. Miss Chineta Wilmer was named Miss Carver-Hill for 1955-56. Miss Wilmer won the contest with $83.00. She was a resident of Ft. Walton Beach, Fl.

Currently the Carver-Hill School serves as the Carver-Hill Administrative Complex for the Okaloosa County Public Schools. The cafeteria is managed by the Carver-Hill Memorial and Historical Society, Inc and is a location for many community events and activities.
