Starpoint High School 2

Starpoint is by far one of the nicest schools in the area, if not the best . The high school is only about 10 years old and has a beautiful gymnasium, library, and auditorium. However the cosmetics unfortunately overshadow the negative of the school to the rest of the WNY area. Bullying and safety is not a concern to the school. The bullying is often ignored or little done about it. Starpoint is also one of worst schools "cliquey" schools I've seen as a former Starpoint teacher. The reason of this is because kids have been going together since kindergarten. A lot of teachers do care how students perform, but it seems after teachers get their tenth year, some stop caring if they succeed. Some of the sports teams are consistently good and others go through cycles of winning and losing seasons. Starpoint has a wide variety of Business and Art classes but only offers a couple electives for English and History. Most of the kids are from rural area and you often see kids driving to school in their tractors.

Starpoint is not a bad school by any means, however, do not expect any immediate action from the superintendent on important saftey meaures or involvement in any issue other than sports, or some way to make the school 'look good'. Dr. Whelan cares more about his reputation than anything else, and many teachers will agree with that statement as well. On that note, the education I've received cannot be degraded and the quality of teachers is well above average. Mostly friendly student community and fine selection of sports teams.

I am an alumni from Starpoint Central School, attending K-12 and graduating in 1997. The school is the perfect size for student interactment, teachers are helpful & work hard to keep students 'up to par' and the choice of extra curricular activities is great - music, arts, drama, and a variety of varsity & jv sports!

I think the school is great except their lack of a variety of sports and their terrible lunches.

I feel that Starpoint is a terrific school. They have added a new high school, with state of the art equipment, computers, new library, high tech security, and the new sports facility! The teachers are very dedicated, and some email weekly updates to keep families informed. I recommend this school highly. We have been in the community for ten years, the kids started in the elementary school and are now in middle and the high school. I wouldn't think of leaving the area until they are finished with school. I think they are receiving the best education available in Western New York.
