    "Our three children currently attend Curtis and all are extremely happy, well educated and have compassion for their fellow classmates. We started there 8 years ago, and now my oldest is graduating and going to an excellent middle school. Curtis truly embodies what we as parents would like to see for our children...well educated, challenged, in a warm, caring environment where they are known for their individuality. I feel blessed and fortunate that we can send our children to a place like Curtis."

    "I can not say enough positive things about Curtis School. We currently have 2 children attending the school and feel so very lucky to be providing them with this incredible educational opportunity. Our children are thriving and look forward to going to school each and every day. From the nurturing and caring teachers to the endless extra curricular opportunities to the beautiful and enormous campus, Curtis has it all. Curtis also provides our family with a wonderful sense of community. The families that attend Curtis all seem to have very similar values and goals for our children. I know our children will leave Curtis as strong, confident and kind young adults and will be prepared for the next school they attend. These qualities will stay with them for a lifetime."

    "My son and daughter both attended Curtis and it was an amazing experience for my daughter who is now in 7th grade at a top school. She thrived at Curtis and took advantage of all it had to offer which was a lot. It was not the right fit for my son and this is the case with each individual student. Finding the right fit for your child at any school is what makes the difference in the experience. My daughter was well prepared for middle school and my son went from being the average student at Curtis to a top student in his class when he transferred to a top rated public school. The public school is a better fit for him though he still has Curtis friends. Being a parent who has now done private and public, I can attest that there are many advantages to private school. Curtis had PE every day with all kids on competing sports teams as they had a no cut policy and broke them into 3 teams. The technology advantages are also vastly different. My daughter had the most amazing education and experience there and my son has thrived in the public school environment but I may move him back to private at MS and hope he will be prepared. If Curtis is a fit for your kid it can't be beat."

    "My family went to Curtis over a 10 year period and sadly, we saw the school change from a warm, nuturing environment to a cold, calculated one. A few years ago they changed headmasters to a person, though well educated, has made the school extremly cold as well as all about wealth and celebrity. Many families have been asked to leave over the years because they just didn't measure up in one way or another, though the children had been in the school for many years. Educationally, the school is fair. Curtis prepares the kids well for secondary school though you will not see many Curtis alumm on the National Merit lists. The education is middle of the road and could certainly be more rigorous though it would ipiss off many of their celebrity clientel. These parents do not like to deal with arduous hoework. There is no language program also which is not good for a school this expensive."

    "As a therapist and educational researcher, I toured a broad range of top private school ranging from progressive such as Wildwood, Westland and UCLA lab school to more traditional such as JTD, Brentwood, and those in between (Center for Early Education, Oakwood, etc). Our daughter was offered admission to all of the schools to which we applied. We chose Curtis because it has by far the best resources from academic preparation, social development and support, athletics, arts, campus, student teacher ratio, and more. I now have 2 children at Curtis who love school and are thriving! There are amazing science, art, music, athletic, community service and multi-cultural activities which occur regularly. Technology is an important focus and the faculty are highly knowledgeable. It seems that Headmaster Peter Smailes has taken the school in a great direction. This is a school which encourages parent involvement in many ways, primarily with their children. When you come on campus during the day, you can see that the kids work hard and play hard. Middle school outplacement is excellent. Kids leave Curtis very smart, well rounded and confident for the next chapter."
