African American residents of Warwick County campaigned for new public schools to replace inadequate, overcrowded facilities in the 1930s and 1940s. In 1949 the county opened Carver High School, constructed here at a cost of more than $500,000. The 20-classroom consolidated school served students in grades 1-11, with grade 12 added in 1955. In July 1958 Carver was incorporated into the Newport News School system. Homer L. Hines, the schools only principal, inspired students to high achievement. Carver High School closed in 1971 as part of the city's desegregation plan, and the building became an intermediate school.
