One thing I like about Curie High School is the AVID program, it has helped me come far in this journey and I am happy to say that they were part of my growth in the school, they helped me challenge myself and I wouldn't have made it this far if it wasn't for my AVID peers and teachers of course! The school culture also had a lot to do with me coming every day to school because it made me feel like I was at home and that motivated me more, being involved in the school's clubs and helping out with certain events was really fun and that's what I will miss more but again once a Condor, always a Condor!

Curie is a inclusive high school that welcomes many diverse students to work and showcase their talents. It has an amazing IB program, AVID, computer science, architecture, and radio/production program for interested students. Curie offer students to express who they are and find themselves through the many after school clubs they offer based on culture, sexuality, STEM, photography, and more. This high school has the most welcoming environment and when students step inside Curie high school they know they're ready to do something great.
All of my closet friends, I met at Curie. My teachers and several staff members keep me motivated in my class and care about how i do in there class. I am in the CTE program of early childhood education so getting the experience I have is one of the best experiences not only at curie but in my entire life. I am so thankful that I am able to be apart of a school that takes pride in not only academics but also extracurriculars and sports!
