The school overall is ok but there are teachers that need to retire & allow younger teachers to take over . The P.E. teachers have been there for many many years & seem to not know what Physical Education stands for . On several occasions I have seen the kids on the playground during P.E. time with the coaches sitting on the benches instead of doing an organized activity .
The school has an idea that Discipline Precedes Success(DPS). We are firm about discipline issues. For academically, we serve not only Gifted and Talented students with Extracurricular Activities but also Left Behind students with tutoring and after school activities. In Beaumont, there could be a better school than HSA if there were another HSA!!!
Wonderful neighborhood school! My children both attend Curtis, and I have been so pleased with all of their teachers. Both students are in the accelerated program, and their homework and projects continue to challenge them. Their teachers are sensitive to their needs, and the accelerated pace does not overwhelm them. They are excited about learning and enjoy school. It is also nice to see the parents so involved, which probably attributes to the success of the students. The PTA works hard to provide additional teaching aides for teachers and programs for children. You have the opportunity to get to know other parents and faculty members. I am thankful for such a great start to my children's education and success.
I am thrilled with Sallie Curtis Elementary. I have had nothing but positive expereinces from all of the faculty. All of the teachers are awesome. You should not worry about your child and the education they received from Sallie Curtis. Keep up the wonderful work.
We moved from Houston to Beaumont and we love Sallie Curtis Elementary. We have been there one year, and feel like we have always been there...the parents, teachers, and staff are just awesome!
We recently relocated, and it was very hard to say goodbye to Sallie Curtis. My daughter attended through the 4th grade and really excelled in the Challenge program there. The fourth grade teachers and the priciple went above and beyond to help us make sure that my daughter got placed in the GT program at her new school. The parent invovement at this school is phenomenal, and with very few exceptions all of the teachers are wonderful- the kindergarten teachers in particular, as well as the 2nd grade Challenge teacher. We had a few bumps along the way, but the school administration always took care of things appropriately. The 'Show Productions' program (drama/music) is very good for helping kids learn to perform onstage- my daughter loved it. We will miss this wonderful school!
