offers a challenging academic curriculum that promotes dynamic, engaging
approaches to teaching and learning.
We balance traditional and innovative pedagogical
approaches to ensure that students develop a strong foundation for future
success, becoming engaged learners and active participants in a school
community. Our faculty fosters students’ mastery of developmentally appropriate
literacy and numeracy skills, as children learn to create, to understand, to
reflect, to transmit, to include, and to strive.
goal is to develop, in every child, a sound mind in a sound body, governed by a
compassionate heart. We recognize that children are individuals who have diverse learning styles and, in consequence, a diversity of teaching methods is required to maximize effective learning and the development of each child's potential to succeed. We take great pride in the caliber, commitment, and collaboration of our faculty and academic staff.
Our students become young people of character who
are also critical thinkers, effective communicators, respectful collaborators,
and resilient problem solvers. Curtis graduates leave us as whole,
self-disciplined, ethical beings, who are well prepared to pursue, confidently,
the next stage in the journey of their lives.
Our Lower Elementary division (Grades DK-2) fosters the young child's natural curiosity and a love of learning. We believe in the importance of nurturing a child's emotional and social growth as a foundation for intellectual development.
Our Upper Elementary division (Grades 3-6) fosters the increasing independence of our students by providing appropriate academic challenges along with sustained support for each student and promoting engagement within a nurturing environment.
