my daughter is in 1st grade and her teacher ms.g is awesome.she always texts me back when I have a question.she is always up beat.her students love her.she will be missed by my child and I when the school year is over.i wish my child could have her next year for 2nd grade.i am pleased to have my child going to Curtis bay.i had a child that went to bay brook and let's just say he never liked it there but only for his 4th and 5th grade year.i feel that the school has tried the best they can.they've made mistakes but no 1 school is perfect.they can only improve in my opinion.i've had very few problems with Curtis Bay.ask yourself what school doesn't have it's querks.as long as they can learn from it then it's all good.i'm happy to be a parent that child attends Curtis Bay Elementary School

I have an autistic 5th grader currently enrolled in this school. When we moved here three years ago, I originally had misgivings about enrolling him here--his last school (Maree Farring, #203) had recommended institutionalizing him, and I expected the same from CBEMS. Three years after starting there, he is now reading at his grade level, and doing grade level math at 75% accuracy, his teacher Ms. Amberger writes 'a joy to teach' on his progress reports and has strenuously objected to his prior classification at his previous school as a candidate for institutionalization. Although I no longer work in the area, I have elected to deal with a 2 hour commute to work rather than relocate and remove my son from this school.

I attended this school, and all three of my children attended this school as well. The school is in need of renovation and repairs. However the staff is amazing, minus the principal, I would send my nieces and nephews to this school. The new principal is not good at talking to parents. I have been disrespected by her for standing up for a child that was not mine. I think you would want you parents to be happy because we have the voice to make things happen from North Ave.

Great with the children; the teachers are truly motiveted to help the students reach their full potential. My gr'daughter's teacher has even called her at home since she has missed days from her GI condition. They have a neat gymnastics team that has really improved over the years. Students are encouraged in sports as well as arts and activities despite all the budget cuts.

overall i have to give this school two thumbs up my kids have been attenting this school since head start i do believe that thw teachers should challenge the smarter kids to harder work but as a parent if i see my child excel at a faster pace I challenge them at home but i would like to see a program there for gifted students or advanced students ....ms avery (the principal) is amazing she always addresses any issues that we (the parents) or the children has iv'e had a few problems im not saying that they are perfect but ill just say that my kids attended one other city school for about 2 weeks and i snatched them out so quick because i would have been taking them back an entire grade if i would have left them there so overall i love the school for it to be a city public school i think that they do A OK

The teachers in this school are amazing!!! The classes aren't too big so the children get more one on one time. It is just a small school but it is a wonderful school. they say dynamite comes in small packages, that's Curtis Bay Elementary!!!!

I love this school. My daughter also loved this school. If i told her not to go school due to sick, she would mad at me UNTIL she can go back to school. I would register my son there too.

This school is on the rise! Despite reservations to send my child to a city school, I have found the curriculum and staff to be above board. The school if full of dedicated, caring, and qualified staffmembers that consistantly go above and beyond the title of thier particular position. Many new changes to the school this year- new playgrounds & landscaping, classrooms, & programs. The only drawback I have observed(besides general lack of funding apparant in all Baltimore city schools) is the lack of support the school is given by the parenting community. Get involved no matter where your cild goes.

Curtis Bay is not the outstanding school that some would claim it to be. Since my child has been attending this school I have noticed a slight decline in his behavioral habits. The communication between the staff and parents are way below average. I dont feel like its a good environment for a child to be in I would think twice a about having my child attend this school another year.

My son has been in this school for several yrs now. From head start to now 2003, and I couldn t ask for a better school. The principals are great! And the commutation there is also good.
