    "I have had two boy at star elementary, before they attended Paramount. Although Star does not seem to have the funding that Parsmount has it makes up for it with the wonderful teachers and administration. The teachers have set up seperate math programs to make sure my kids were challenged. One review mentioned bullying, I have not found that at all, I have found that there is a real since of community at Star and that the teachers and the principal go out of there way to make sure that the kids are safe and happy. My only complaint is that with the growth in Star the school district has not kept up and the school is experiencing over crowding."

    "This school has truly exceeded my expectations in providing a valuable learning environment for my children. They use technology tools with engaging teaching instruction that truly surpass other schools which makes me question the GreatSchools Rating that Star Elementary has received. I think it needs to be re-evaluated. The principal and teachers truly care for their students and it shows. As a parent that has always been concerned about my children getting an excellent education I have not been disappointed at all. Great job to everyone at Star Elementary!"

    "Based on the new State of Idaho 5 Star rating program that takes into account the bigger picture of a schools qualifications Star is rated a 2 out of 5 for 2012-2013 school year. A 1 or 2 school means that an improvement plan is required by the State. (https://apps.sde.idaho.gov/Accountability/Content/files/StarRatings2012-2013.pdf )"

    "I have lived in two states and when looking for a school decided to see what this site had to offer. Using the tool you provide I took notes and checked off all that Star had to offer and looked for missing items. Star met and surpassed the evaluation sheet. I observed teachers engaged in working with students using a variety of materials and groups. As I looked at this and a few other schools the climate at Star and the evidence I witnessed of relevant instruction and positive interactions made it clear that this is where my children belong. I also viewed the video on this site and find it interesting that you put such emphasis on testing when materials you promote for evaluating a school point out that tests are a very small and often inaccurate view of a school. The rating is misleading and not very meaningful."

    "This school is amazing. Why is this rating so inaccurate? Under test scores form 2012 it uses only 84 students? This makes NO sense. PLEASE know this school is a wonderful place! The kids coming from here are very well prepared students. The more a parent is involved with their kid and teachers...the happier everyone is. Keep up the great work staff and students."
