Suzanne Vick

My name is Suzanne Vick and I am starting my 4th year as Athletic Director at Curtis High School. I am thrilled to serve you! I look forward to connecting with each of you! The lessons learned through athletics are essential to every young person's success. Through athletics we learn to win, lose, trust, disappoint, persevere, dig deeper, defer, celebrate, listen, sacrifice, and commit, along with many more.


Our coaches love what they do and work extremely hard preparing to serve our student-athletes. We are committed to competing with integrity, offering the best instruction, over-communicating, and providing a positive experience.


As a staff we have spent the year developing our guiding principles. Our Vision, Mission, Values and The Curtis Way will be our what guides all our decisions this year. Please take a time to talk with your child about what it means to be a Curtis Athlete.


We need you! My hope is every family and fan will partner with us to positively encourage and support all of our Curtis High School sports, athletes and coaches. As you walk into a Curtis event please choose to be a fan. The role of athlete, coach and official are already taken.


I look forward to partnering with you, our athletes and our coaches to make this the best year ever!

GO VIKS!
