About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

Within the first two weeks of school, teachers and administration had MOTIVATED MY CHILD to get involved in several academic clubs. I STILL can't get over the fact that my child, who can get good grades with very little effort and would normally want to spend his free time playing video games, now LIKES and WANTS to stay after school and go on Saturdays to LEARN MORE ABOUT MATH AND SCIENCE!!
The teachers at Stars CARE about challenging students to do their best and reach their full potential--no matter if a student is classified as "gifted" or one who struggles with learning. I would highly recommend the school, without reservation, to any parent or student.
