Congratulations to our dedicated, hard-working, award-winning PE department. 

Mr. Palazzolo, Mrs. DeCicco, and Mr. Brummitt earned Culver School the prestigious Blue Ribbon Award for the 4th time! Check out the brochure pic to see this unique, incredible distinction! Our PE teachers see every student, every day. They bring the joy of wellness to their lives as they actively skill-build and play. We appreciate all they give to our school and for the countless hours they put into the Blue Ribbon process.

After School Assistance Program (Middle School)

Culver School is dedicated to supporting students’ social, emotional, and academic growth and success. One of the ways we support academic success for our students is through the After School Assistance Program(ASAP).  Please see additional information about the program here.

Sports Spectator Expectations

We love having so many sports fans cheering on our players at our after school sports! We also know how important it is to share our behavioral expectations with students as well as parents/guardians. We ask that you please help us adhere to the following expectations:

  • We ask that all sports fans speak with respect. 
  • Students can use phones in the hallway and must have phones put away when in the gym.
  • Only coaches should provide feedback/coaching to the players. 
  • Fans should not argue or make comments to the referee or coaches. 
  • Showing positive sportsmanship, we expect our fans to treat opposing teams with respect. 
  • If fans are becoming too loud, an adult will ask for a respectful volume so our athletes can focus.
