    STAR Academy Principal


    Greetings Parents/Guardians,

    Welcome to STAR Academy!  We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners!

    As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to collaborate to ensure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together as a team effort to ensure success for all our students served. Our main focus is student learning and behavior, affording them opportunities that will maximize their success.  We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

    In a forever changing world, it is imperative that we set the bar of expectations high for our students providing them with vigorous lessons to help them reach their full potential.  For STAR Academy to achieve high success it will take the teamwork from our students, parents, guardians, staff, and community.  

    If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or administration a call.  I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.

    Mrs. Thomas, Principal
