Curie mission statement

Curie Mission Statement

It is the mission of Curie Metropolitan High School to offer a rigorous academic curriculum with an emphasis on technology and the arts. Curie High School promotes future success by establishing a culture of college and career readiness and by encouraging students to enroll in post-secondary institutions. Curie High School is committed to providing authentic learning experiences that will provide a foundation for life-long learning. Students will be prepared to become leaders and engaged citizens in a global society, enabling them to contribute positively and responsibly to their community.


School priorities

School Priorities

  • Promote EPAS growth through targeted instruction that addresses student deficits through teacher integration of Common Core aligned instruction.

  • Identify and apply best practice strategies that support increased student attendance and decrease misconducts within the 4-6 range.

  • Teachers will monitor weekly on-track goals at each grade level to support achievement by identifying student needs, differentiating instruction and aligning curriculum and instruction to Common Core Standards.

  • Identify and apply school-wide structures and procedures that support college and post-secondary metrics.


What is epas

What is EPAS ?

ACT's EPAS® Educational Planning and Assessment System was developed in response to the need for all students to be prepared for high school and the transitions they make after graduation.

The EPAS system provides a longitudinal, systematic approach to educational and career planning, assessment, instructional support, and evaluation. The system focuses on the integrated, higher-order thinking skills students develop in grades K-12 that are important for success both during and after high school.

EPAS focuses on a number of key transition points that young people face:

EXPLORE, 8th/9th grade—Preparing for high school studies

PLAN, 10th grade—Planning and preparing for college and the workplace

PSAE/ACT, 11th/12th grade—Being ready for life after high school

ACT College Readiness Benchmarks

The average national composite score is 21


Curie metropolitan high school for the technical and performing arts

The benchmarks are scores on the ACT subject-area tests that represent the level of achievement required for students to have a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in corresponding credit-bearing first-year college courses. These college courses include English composition, college algebra, introductory social science courses, and biology. Based on a nationally representative sample of 98 institutions and more than 90,000 students, the Benchmarks are median course placement values for these institutions and as such represent a typical set of expectations.
