    My daughter has attended this school for three years and will be starting her fourth year this fall. Every teacher we have had has been absolutely wonderful. We are communicated with and always kept up to date. My daughter has adored every one of them! The school is very organized and even gives out very nice assignment books to each and every child. There are tons of great activities for families to participate in and to help raise money. We recently had a carnival!! The principal is fantastic and always keeps families up to date with a weekly phone call on Sundays. We love Curtis elementary and couldn't imagine being anywhere else!

    The school is excellent. I'm very happy with the school. we recently move to Virginia and I was worried about my sons adjusting to a new school. The Administrative staff was a gem. They were very helpful and patient with the boys and I. Also, their teachers went the extra mile to make sure my boys get adjusted to their new school. The first quarter report card was great. Also, I'm that the teachers keep you involved in their lessons.

    I had the pleasure of attending Curtis elementary as a child in my army brat adventures and it was my favorite of all the elementary schools I attended. Now as a Mom to three children, I have the peace of mind sending then to Curtis! They love their school and the many opportunities it provides. The warm feel of the school with the many family building activities make school a fun place!! Innovative teachers and up to date technology also keep the kids engaged and at the top of the state in education. We love Curtis!!

    Curtis is a terrific school. It is rather large with over 700 children but it definitely has a small town, caring, nurturing environment. My children are thriving there.

    I have been both very impressed and very disappointed with this school. The teachers are excellent and my children have loved attending here. The administration has been a huge disappointment. The teachers will outlast the current administration and hopefully their replacements will be of higher quality and standards. I recommend this school to parents because your children will be happy here but the teachers and parents often have a difficult time with the administration. As long as my children are cared for and receiving a good education, I'm willing to put up with the frustrations caused by the current administration.

Music gym and library because they are really fun cause you can learn how to do gymnastics and learn how to sing really good and and learn how to read really really good.

    I am a grandmother of a kindergartener. I live out of state and recently visited. I had the opportunity to pick up my granddughter from school. I am very impressed with the attention given to students and families. My granddaughter loves the school and I love being able to learn about Curtis by receiving email information. I am comforted to know they are taking good care of my granddaughter!

    I love Curtis and so do my kids. We moved here from Henrico County a year ago and the boys like it at Curtis so much better.
