John Curtis Christian School Reviews

By a Parent on

My kids have been attending John Curtis for four years now.  They absolutely love it there.  They are both eager to tell me what they have learned and wanting to learn more.  All the teachers and faculty know just about every student and what makes that student tick.  They make sure that they offer guidance and support when they see a student start to slack off a little.  They teach the kids about respect and that is something that is normally not taught in schools.  I am very happy that I chose John Curtis as the school my kids.
