Welcome to the Proud Home of the Cobras

Welcome to George Washington Carver Elementary school, home of the Cobras in Yuma, Arizona. We're a K-6 school located in the south west border of the state, where we enjoy good weather and warm summers year-round! We're glad to have your students with us and consider ourselves The Greatest Little School on Either Side of the James Jefferson Bridge!

We are proud to tell you that the AZ Department of Education has given us "Performing Plus" recognition. This year we will be hard at work to meet our goal of 80% proficiency in reading, math, and writing in all grade levels. You can help us make our goal by sending your children to school every day and on time. We are encouraged that our scores steadily improve through all grades.

We hope you'll find what you need to know about our school at this website. Just browse around and learn more About Us, the school News, and Calendar items. Please give us a call if you aren't able to find answers from any of our Frequently Asked Questions. We are so happy to teach your students on campus every day. Please come back to our site often. We're glad you came!
