Kurtis quig

Interim Principal


Kurtis Quig is in his 24th year in education, all of which have transpired in middle schools and high schools and most of his time has been serving the North Aurora Community. Graduating from the University of Mary in 1997, he began his career as a middle school social studies teacher. During this time, he received his master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Colorado at Denver. After graduating, he became assistant principal at North Middle School in Aurora Public Schools. These years were very formative in his growth as an educator as it provided a solid foundation of best practices in low income schools that are in turnaround status. In 2013, he was honored to accept the position of principal at West Early College Middle School in Denver Public Schools where he was able to support this school in turning around the quality of education and move the school out of turnaround status. Mr. Quig continued serving the North Aurora community in 2018 as an assistant principal at Aurora Central High School. Mr. Quig is looking forward to this opportunity of leading the 9-12 Visual and Performing Arts Magnet school.

Mr. Quig enjoys spending time with his wife, Kara, his son, Kolton, and his daughter, Kennedy. The family enjoys spending time with one another and traveling around the country looking for a relaxing beach.
