I moved my child from the Academy of Moore County to this school and all I can say is that I should have come here first. The principal at Stars is a licensed and educated principal. Unlike the Academy whose principal has neither a degree or license in Principal Leadership. The principal treats parents and children with respect. I heard a lot of screaming from the principal at the other school and I was not going to tolerate it again. The teachers and staff really care about the education and growth of the children. The school excels in math and science instruction and the children are always engaged. There is a big population of military children at this school and the school really tries to go the extra mile for them. There is also a very strong military support group at this school. If you want a well round, challenging and nurturing education for your child, then this is the place for you!

STARS is an excellent school of choice for those looking for a refreshing new option in education. The school has made numerous improvements in the past 3-4 years with a new administration and many new faculty. STARS is a very happy school because the students and faculty love being there. My children have been learning at STARS for 2 years now and would not want to be anywhere else. They are learning more at STARS than at their previous schools and enjoy the way the school uses the arts to teach them about anything from Math and Science to English and History. My kids have developed not only academic skills but also strong character through self expression because of the environment here. I cannot say enough nice things about STARS and the direction the leadership at the school is headed.

The school has a decent philosophy, but in all honesty it's not much different than any other poorly managed charter school. They have a nice building and nice landscaping, but they don't have enough science and math books for some grades.

This is my daughter's second year at STARS. It has been a wonderful experience so far. They welcome parent involvement and focus on the whole child. My daughter's confidence is strong; they have fostered her education, talents, and individuality. I can not wait until my other two children join her at STARS so that I can watch them grow in this unique learning environment.

con't.....The hallways are filled with impressive artwork and stories. In each room entered I found children actively engaged either directly with the teacher or with their fellow students..oh did I say...smiling, happy children..! And yes...smiling happy teachers apparently enjoying their vocations. I left with a smile and deep gratitude for the entire staff into whose hands my most precious grandchildren have been entrusted. Ad multos anos stars !!

My granddaughter attends STARS and has for almost two years. She is in 6th grade. Prior to enrolling she was home schooled following less than positive experiences at public schools. Her home life went thru an extremely traumatic period leaving some additional challenges to those of just growing up. We found STARS shortly after moving to the area from out of state. We were looking for a setting that fostered her creativity and supported her self-expression while building a strong scholastic foundation. It also had to be a place that was sensitive, innovative and creative in the way it reached its students. We found that standard, public, main-stream educational settings weren t enough as her levels of sensitivity, artistic expression and outside- of-the-box perspective needed a venue in which she could grow and flourish rather than be bored and stifled. During her time at STARS her test scores have gone up markedly, her desire to attend classes and learn is high and consistent, and her overall level of self-confidence is healthier that it s ever been. This school has a growing and active Parent Teacher Organization, encouraged by administration and welcomed by the teachers. We have the opportunity, thru service to the school, to be an active part of our granddaughter s education experience. We get to be a part of the solution thru participation rather than a part of the problem thru inactivity and distance. We have come to know, respect and appreciate STARS administration, teachers and support staff as we see much of the day to day interaction with the students. Appropriate members of the faculty take great effort to reach each child, regardless of the child s skill level, to help them achieve their potential. For those students with special struggles, administration has established after-school help. My family s hope is that the school continues to grow so our granddaughter can continue to have the measureable benefits of attendance regardless of her grade. It is a place of that offers participation and growth by all: students, teachers, and families. Steven George

Wow - this school is so different from last year. Last year, the middle school was kind of off the wall - no discipline, kids doing whatever they wanted, teachers letting them do whatever, just crazy. Now, the teachers are mature, they care about the kids, and they seem to be living up to the 'vision' that Ms. Kemple kept talking about last year but no one could see. They are having fun and learning, and the expectations are high, not just in middle school, but in the whole school. I'm excited to see what happens the rest of this year.

I love STARS. My son has attended since kindergarten. The staff and teachers really care about the children and I am happy with the way the school is run and the way classes are taught.

Overall I have been very impressed with the school. The principal as well as the teachers are very involved with the students and take the time to get to know each student. The children are also well networked. By the end of kindergarten my daughter had friends in all grade levels. My only complaint is that events and activities are put together at the last minute (a common flaw in most creative minds) With a little more planning and notification, the school would be perfect.

This school is awesome. You can feel it as soon as you walk in the door. The directors really set the tone - they work long days and you can go to them with anything, and they really care about the kids. So do the teachers. Test scores went up this year, and the way they put the arts into the classroom is really cool. Now that the building is finished, everyone can settle down and focus 100% on building the program to even greater heights, and I know they will.

I rank STARS school as excellent! The teachers and staff at STARS are so wonderful and caring! My son attended 2 grade this year and is being promoted to 3rd grade now. He has learned sooo much more at STARS than he has ever learned at regular public school. Not only that, but his self confidence is at an all time high and he literally has become excited to learn. STARS teachers have a very unique way of making education fun and interesting for the students. The Arts are incorporated into the academics programs so that each child acquires talents in areas that actually bring out the best in them! Self confidence is boosted and each child feels important and this is what makes them excited to learn! My son has learned so much this year -he is way ahead of children in our area who attend the local public school.

STARS has excellent teachers and staff. I truly believe they are moving in the right direction with the new school. Many of the things they don't have could be acquired if there were more parent involvement. My grand daughter has done very well this year and improved academically. I hope we can all chip in and help the school grow in every way in the coming year.

I'm very disappointed in this school! I find the leadership very lacking! They do not follow through as they suggest! I've tried to get a graded report card for the school year now and still haven't gotten one and I've even filled out all their required paperwork! I have two children at this school and one has an excellent teacher! The brochure for this school is wonderful but I find it doesn't represent it's portrayal of the school!

I don't know... my daughter is in sixth grade. She read The Crucible this year, her vocab words are SAT prep, and she is studying and doing well in eighth grade level math. Stars isn't perfect - they do need more money, a library, and more resources. Parents could be more involved. The teachers don't get paid enough, but they do a great job with what little they have. Now maybe that they have a new building, they will have more money. I would put Stars up against any school in the county.

The staff are great, however, I don't feel the teachers have the tools to adequately teach nor does school strives for any academic excellence. There is no library in the new school, no lunch program, and more emphasis on the arts than learning. It would be a great school if they'd learn to balance and take care of academic needs first. Someday this children will be in a high school and find themselves 2 grades behind.

The staff at this school are absolutely wonderful. Every parent can tell how much so the staff are involved with the students and enthused about their learning.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, data for that group is not reported.
