My son is thriving in kindergarten at Startown. We wouldn't have him anywhere else. In fact, we chose our house because it was in Startown's district.

Clearly, this is an excellent school. Startown does an excellent job of maintaining a balance that respects the rights of all students.

This school discriminates against children with special needs. Selective teachers have there pick. If a child is not part of a teachers pick, the child is bullied by both students and teachers and the administrative staff will do nothing about it. My daughter attended this school. Her last year there was the 5th grade. My daughter was put through pure HELL. We now home school her. She has never been happer. Her grade point average has doubled since she has been removed from the public school system.

Our daughter attends this school and we couldn't be happier. We looked at several private schools in the area and found the activities, expectations and staff at Startown to be superb. The teachers recognize academic potential and strive to ensure all students reach it. Startown school made us feel like we were part of their school family even though we were new to the area. You will not be unhappy with this fantastic school.

I have 2 students at Startown. What I love most is the amazing staff. The teachers and administration are some of the most caring and dedicated people I've come across. They are great role models and really connect with the students. They use a challenging curriculum that is also flexible to meet students needs. This school goes the extra mile in all areas! Awesome!

We recently moved here at the beginning of the school year. I really like this school for my children. I enjoyed my childrens teacher as well as the bus driver. I only have one question and that is does the school have tutoring for second graders for reading and math if so please let me know. Mpruette@yahoo.Com thank you so much for all you do to help my children suceed in their schooling.

I was not surprised to see one review for Startown School in the last year. I found it hard to write a review for Startown School. I found myself trying to weigh the good things about Startown School.I should not have think this hard to find good in the School. I have had 2 children attend Startown School and can think of only 3 teachers that were meant to be teachers and truly love their job. That is such a small number for a school it's size. The Startown School faculty is not a very accepting group of employees. I find most of them including the TA's to be rude and judgmental especially if you are not apart of Startown Optimist group. However I hold the Principal of the school responsible for their behavior. You can't always be the nice guy and sometimes a teacher is wrong.

What a wonderful school! Excellent teachers, fantastic support of the arts and physical education! Very few discipline problems, yet culturally diverse! Have sent two through this school, and will send two more, wish the school was a k-12 school, because you hate to leave such a wonderful caring place.
