    We have 2 children at Stark and we love it! Their teachers have been awesome every year! We are about to put our home up for sale and are making sure we buy in the same district!

    This school is wonderful- from the awesome principle to the terrific teachers- I could not ask for a better school for my children. the teachers are very in tune to what the children need and are available for extra help and guidance and reassurance when needed. They also offer affordable quality after school and before school. All kids are eligible for free breakfast. The school is new and absolutely gorgeous. This school is doing great things for its community- right at the heart- the kids and their families!!!
