On behalf of all the staff members, I would like to welcome everyone to Star Academy of Toledo!! It is a privilege to serve as principal of STAR. Our school has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful program. Receiving an “A” in Value Added for three consecutive years from the Ohio Department of Education, STAR is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive parents/guardians interested in their children’s education, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing each student with a quality education.
Currently, STAR has a student population of approximately 180 students in grades K-8. STAR is staffed with 14 certified members of the teaching staff and 10 classified/support staff. In addition to core academic subjects, students have the benefit of daily computer classes and weekly art, and physical education classes. Special services available to students include: special education, literacy support, speech language therapy, and counseling. School hours are 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your child’s education. I certainly realize that many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your child, talk with your child about school, or simply seeing that your child is organized for the next school day can have great benefits. Checking the school calendar, website, and our Facebook page for events and activities will help keep you informed as well.
Enjoy the 2015-2016 school year and all the excitement it will bring! Please feel free to contact any of us at STAR if you would like more information about our school.
