Dr. Chavon Curry

Welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy!

I am excited about serving the scholars, staff, families and community partners of our school community to ensure that all scholars continue to receive high-quality learning experiences. We will work hard to make sure that we provide the safe, inclusive, wonderful and enriching education that each scholar deserves.

I've worked as a Elementary School Administrator in SLPS before leading at Patrick Henry. I fostered my love of teaching for over 10 years, working in California, Missouri and Illinois. I've also been the St. Louis American Golden Apple Award recipient and an SLPS Elementary Reading Teacher of the Year.

At Patrick Henry, we are determined to meet the needs of every scholar who walks through our doors. We have a dedicated staff that  pursues and strives to embody our mission and vision. We are a strong community of families, educators, and partners dedicated to our scholars' emotional, mental, physical, and academic well-being. At Patrick Henry Downtown Academy, it truly takes a village to ensure we meet the needs of every scholar. 

I am excited to see how our scholars will take flight and soar this school year!  

Educationally Yours,

Dr. Chavon Curry
