Visit Us

Curtis School sits on 27 acres of gentle hills and grassy playing fields on Mulholland Drive in the Santa Monica Mountains.
We welcome you to learn more about Curtis School and we are eager to share what makes Curtis School such an exceptional school and special place for our students and families. 

After submitting an application, parents and guardians will be invited to attend an Open House. Our Open Houses are designed to provide families with information about our Mission, programs, and community. In addition, you will be able to register for a "Morning with Meera", our Head of School, Dr. Meera Ratnesar. After your application has been received, you will be able to register for both of these opportunities to learn more about Curtis. Please see the links below.
