Starret Junior High school has an amazing staff who go above and beyond for their students. Our family was impressed by the way the school used information gained from testing to improve their practices. Students at this age have so many issues and we were particularly impressed with the counselor and how much time she spent helping our children find their way through the toughest years they have had.

Unfortunately the staff and quality of education seem to be lacking greatly. Hopefully my children will rebound once they get into High School.
