Attention Curtis Families
PCS has a new system for parents to complete their students' back to school forms electronically via Focus! We hope this new system saves you time and effort during the back to school season. To learn how to complete the forms, watch this video ( https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/pcsfirstday ), visit our webpage ( https://www.pcsb.org/backtoschoolforms ) or call the TIS Help Desk at 727-588-6060 for more information. If you need help creating or accessing your parent ID and password, or if you need your student attached to your account in Focus, please contact your school.
We are pleased that you are interested in our school and hope that our website has much to offer you. If you are new to Curtis and its fundamental program, we trust that you will find our school to be academically rigorous, uniquely progressive, caring and helpful to our students and parents.
Curtis is the first fundamental elementary school in Florida and is among only a handful of fundamental schools in the country. What do we mean by fundamental? We mean that we have created a program that is “like schools used to be.” We have created a school where parents are involved, students are on task and are successful, and teachers are responsive and highly communicative.
Among the unique aspects of our school:
Mandatory parent meetings each month
Regular communication with teachers
A homework heavy curriculum
A system of infractions that requires students to stay on task
A modified dress code
High expectations for student behavior and cooperation
Our students are strong academically and involved in extracurricular activities. We endeavor to create a school that is worthy of their attendance and true to their expectations of excellence. We seek to hire the best teachers in Florida and are very proud of our current faculty. They are first-rate educators.
This combination of strong students and high-performing teachers is uniquely Curtis. Though we still work to improve each year, we have all the key ingredients to make our school a world-class elementary school that our principal envisions and our community demands. There is no stopping us now.
