Curtis Senior High School is a part of the University Place School District and the only high school in the district. The school's namesake comes from the former UPSD Superintendent George R. Curtis. The school opened in 1957 as a joint junior-senior high school at the corner of 40th and Grandview. In 1969, a high school facility was built about 500 yards east of the junior high that then extended up 40th Street. After this, the original site became just a junior high school. In 2009, the original junior high was torn down and a new facility was built about 400 yards northeast of that site.


Curtis Senior High School offers Advanced Placement classes. The school also offers a Running Start program for juniors and seniors to take classes at local colleges.
