—Submitted by a student


Posted August 4, 2009

All 3 of my children have attended Curtis and I have to say that the staff and the teachers there are wonderful. When my son first started attending school there he was having much difficulty with reading and after attending Curtis they got him back on track! When my son started there he always said he was not going to college. My son now is a high honors student and is in high school and the transformation while attending this school was incredible. Nothing but great things to say about this school!!

Curtis has been an excellent school for my son. The staff has been very supportive and responsive. Mr. Wilson is fantastic - balancing a sense of order with caring for the kids.

I love Curtis. Without stepping foot in this school- there is no way you could see how much is going on. There are many opportunities for my kids and they really enjoy this school. The teachers are great. There is a lot of communication between parents and teachers and this has helped my children be more successful with their academics.
