Biographical or Historical Information
In December of 1894, the Board of Directors of the Normal School first authorized the construction of a building for the practice school. In 1902, the school moved to the new building on College Avenue. It was named in honor of Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry, an advocate for the establishment of the State Normal and Industrial School in the early 1890s. The practice school remained in the Curry Building on College Avenue until it was destroyed by fire in 1926. It was replaced the same year by another building, also named for Curry, located on Spring Garden Road.
For many years the Curry School consisted of Kindergarten through twelfth grade. The school was phased out gradually; the junior high school in 1968, then the senior high school in 1969, and finally the elementary school in 1970.
