WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

STARS project based-learning program is balanced with social emotional learning. STARS focus is the whole child, taking into consideration social development as much as academic. The teachers are so supportive and nurturing. My kiddos can’t wait to get to school each and every day which was not the case at all with other schools. My kids come home inspired and excited to share everything they are learning.

Stars Academy is a gem. Shayna Turk and the staff that make STARS Academy so incredibly special truly make a difference in each child’s life. School had always been a source of battles, stress, and just overall survival mode to get through the day. Not at STARS. The comfort and sheer relief that my child feels each day at school is indescribable. It’s what all kids should feel and deserve to have in any school.

STARS Academy offers an amazing experience both socially, intellectually and academically. There are not enough words to describe how fantastic each and every one of the teachers are and the support they give our children. Highly recommended to anyone who is “Experiencing” the lack of educational support in the traditional school trajectory at this point with their child.

Since our daughter became a STARS student, she eagerly shares details about her learning and her friends; all unprompted. We felt that this was very telling of the environment STARS creates as it has fostered an excitement for academics that we had never seen before. Making the STARS Academy School choice has only brought us closer as a family, for our daughter knows she is our top priority.

STARS has given me the best education I could ask for. I love how you really understand the kids and what they've been going through! I especially like how you put the kids into the groups you think is best for them and then ask people to not make fun of the people who go to a group that has younger kids in it! Your school is officially the best school I can wish for!
