A few years ago before Mr. white was principal I would not have even let my kids play at the park by the school. Mr white has done an excellent job along with the staff and the vice principal mr phok is an amazing persona as well. These two men will take care of your children while you are at work an with the teachers , they are like a well oiled machine. My daughter had a reading problem at the beginning if the year and yesterday she brought home a first place award in reading because they TAKE TIME TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS. There are issues everywhere but these people mean business when a sub is rude to your kid or anything at all and if the kids are having problems they address it appropriately and don't point fingers. There's a lady there named Miss Vickie and she is unreal. She hangs out with the kids and eats lunch with them when she can and she just is a God send. I am a single parent of four children with no child support or any support at all and this school is helping me raise my children and I cannot thank them enough. Thank you guys so much for being you and Mr White, this world would be a better place if there were more men like you and mr phok. sincerely, Audrey Todd

My children will be starting their 3rd year at Curry tomorrow and I couldn't be more pleased with their growth. The office staff is always eager to help with any issues. The principal. Mr. White is a thrill to the children and a classy role model. He is fair and works hard for the students. He encourages good decision making and leadership. Mr. Phok has a connection with the students that is incomparable. Curry had made great strides to improve academically and within the community. They have a dedicated and hard working PTSO that engages the students.

Mr. White and Mr. Phok have been a blessing to Curry. Thank you ! I have been a parent at Curry for 10 years. I have had 4 children attend school there. In all the years , I have not witnessed a better team till those two. They brought the change needed. It was nice watching the dark cloud float away as the school year went by. I must say ,the smiles I witnessed on all the staff and teachers faces and the children's faces was uplifting. It made a powerful statement for Curry and what type of school it is, and what they brought to it.

I use to go to Curry elementary and I must say this school was one of the best schools i have ever gone to. My best memories was being in Ms.Day's class and staying after school to play awesome games and then again in fourth grade i remember being in Mr.Moon's classroom and all the fun projects we did. Curry was the best school I have ever gone to and I'm happy i did they made my childhood one of the best. It may have changed over the years but i can still remember the beautiful sunset and green grass when school was over and staying after school too. I wish i was a kid again.

Curry used to be a good school, now it's a joke. It's clearly the forgotten school of the district, as shown by their D grade in testing. To make up for being forgotten, the district is trying to fix things according to what they think is right without regard to the students who attend. If you're planning to enroll your children at Curry, please do not, don't send them to any school in the district either. While other schools are doing well, the district is showing they do not care about the students at all. There are some amazing teachers at Curry and I hope their experiences at this school do not cause them to remove themselves from teaching.

I had one child complete elementary at this school.I was excited to have my second start here when the principal called the police on me for bringing my younger son to say goodbye.The principal has no teacher to parent skills he treated me with disrespect.My son learned bad language in kindergarten,He was in a fight his first day,and his teacher told me flat out she has to many students and cant watch them every moment.I was appalled on how they treat parents and students.I drive 5 miles out of my way now to take my child to a better school.I would recommend the same

My son is just finishing up Kindergarten and we have not had a very good experience with the school. Which is very sad because I was excited that he was able to go tto Curry as I did 20 some odd years ago. His teacher does not have control over the class, she has had him pin pointed from the very begning. He does not get the positive encouragement that he should. I had asked to have a meeting with the teacher, counsler, and principle and that never happened. Spoke seperatley with the principle and he was suppose get involed with my son and he never followed through. I really hope that first grade goes much better.
