    "I have to admit I was worried about enrolling my children into a small town school but like the saying goes, "never judge a book by its cover!" The principal and teachers are an awesome, hardworking team! My husband and I have never seen a more involved, patient, and kind principal. My kids struggle a little in the academic arena and there were meetings with my husband and me on a consistent basis to make sure both my children were excelling. The teachers and I were in constant communication which made me feel like they cared. I agree with the parent comment before me, Star Elementary IS the best kept secret!!!!"

    "Star Elementary School is the best kept secret of the Meridian-Joint School District. We have been to other Elementary schools within Idaho and the Seattle area and have found that Star is our favorite and the best. The teachers are refreshing with their love for teaching and the energy to keep all their students happy and learning in a wonderful environment. The best thing about Star Elementary is the smaller community that feeds into the school. The school is small which gives all the children a very personable feeling when they enter the school doors. The feeling of family and community is very strong and we are happy that we have stayed with this school instead of feeding into the magnet schools that try and make the parents "think" there children are getting a better education. The Star staff and principle go out of their way with each student and the overall atmosphere of the school is that of quality, kindness and achieving the best."

    "It doesn't seem like this website iss very current because Star Elementary is ROCKING IT! It is so awesome having all this technology to help us teach. It really motivates the students in their practice of important concepts. What I like most is that we, as a school, set a goal to get technology and then made it happen. Way to Go-What a TEAM!"

    "The highly qualified staff at Star Elementary strives to maintain a well-balanced community atmosphere. Teachers collaborate consistently with each other, students, and families. We expect great achievement and support each student in growing academically as much as possible. In addition, teachers work to secure many grants and community partnerships to enrich the learning environment. One major benefit of this extra effort is the recent implementation of the Star Technology Project. Students enjoy access to computers, hand-held devices, and web-based programs at home and at school. These serve to enhance learning and instill critical 21st Century thinking skills. This is a school which values progressive ideas, while maintaining high expectations for all students."

    "Such a disappointment. We transferred to a MUCH better school after my oldest son's 4th year, and my youngest 1st year. Both had to work extra hard to get caught up from not learning what they should have at Star..... If you child is a robot, you won't have any problems. If you child doesn't fit the expected mold of a Star student, they probably won't do very well or get the assistance they need. Of the 4 years my son attended, he only had 1 excellent teacher who truely inspired him. If you have the opportunity to go elsewhere, do!"
