What does Curtis School mean to our former students?

For many, it brings to mind traditions such as the Halloween Parade, the Holiday Concert, the Talent Show, trips to Washington D.C. and Boston, and almost certainly the amazing Curtis Fair. Older alumni might add gymnastics shows and ski trips to Mammoth to the list; while younger alums would count in the Southwest Trip, Go Global Week, Book Spree, and the Emerging Artists Exhibition. But no matter the era or the campus they attended, our alumni share warm memories of their time at Curtis and retain a continuing emotional connection to our school.

A recent graduating class chose a theme for their sixth grade year that expressed their relationship to Curtis:  “At First a School, Now a Home.” The idea that Curtis is more than a school—that it is a second home to its students—is not unique to this class. Rather, it is a feeling that is shared by students across the grades, by Curtis parents, and by our alumni as well. It is the feeling of belonging, of being accepted, and of knowing that you will always be welcome.

As former students, you played an important role in the history of our school; as alumni, you continue to be treasured members of our Curtis community. We invite you to stay connected to Curtis, and we offer you a variety of ways to do so.
