    BEST SCHOOL EVER!! The students are nice the teachers are amazing and the lunch is awesome.

    Mr. Murray is an amazing addition to Starline and is exactly the kind of leader this great school needs to make it even MORE amazing! He's a great leader and a PARENT as well--which gives him a level of understanding and passion for his job that clearly shows and will lead our school into even more greatness! My children's teachers are absolutely amazing as well! We're so lucky to attend this school! Go Starblazers!

    The New Principal - Mike Murray is the best. He is really turning this school into the best school in Havasu and in Mohave County. I will be sending all 5 of my children to Starline because everything about the school is GREAT! We LOVE Starline Elementary!!!

    A huge disappointment! Parents' opinions (of course) differ depending on what prior experience they have to compare/contrast and their specific teacher that year. Coming from a higher quality ranked state district and school we strongly agree with the other negative reviews as we share most experiences. There are some bright points some outstanding personnel .. but in general this school is not worthy of our tax dollars and is actually harming rather than helping many children. .

    My daughters K teacher was amazing. I'm so happy that my youngest will be in her class next year. I'm however very disappointed with our principal. She is never available and when you have teachers that are a nervous wreck as soon as she walks thru the door there is a problem. I'm also very disappointed with our district. Learn to budget!! I hope that they get things together at the district and at Starline before they lose more good teachers students and parents!

    No support from the principal or leadership. The school district eliminated Kindergaten to 1/2 day. Music and Art to one semester really? Still we have a Academic Coach walking around the school like she is the principal.

    I love Starline Elementary because it's a top notch school.

    As a parent I'm disappointed with the lack of organization. Every year it has been the same I receive my child's assigned teacher letter after her first day of class. I think it is ridiculous that assigning the teachers for the following year has to be known so last minute to parents and students. PTA is only held during school hours so if you are a parent who does care but works and would like to be a part of PTA forget that option. Book fairs are only held late one night you could earn more money if it were held later for people who do work different hours. My child has done well. We were fortunate to have one teacher that was amazing in 2nd grade. I think it's wonderful that children come home from school excited to tell you about their day and what they have learned.

    My child went from another school in the city to Starline this year and i think the school is Excellent teachers really care and are involved with the children

    We love Starline Elementary School. Starline is an older school but do not judge this book by it's cover! My son is attending his second year as a Starblazer. He enjoys attending school here and as a parent I am reassured with his comfort level and lack of anxiety when facing the new challenges of growing up. Our principal Mr. Danley is Wonderful. He is truly concerned about each student and their academic growth. Mr Danley goes the extra mile to ensure that the kids and their families are getting what they need. The teachers at Starline are Top Notch! I actually know many of them personally and professionally inside and outside of school. The school also offers afterschool programs such as a 'Big Brother and Sisters' mentoring program Arts Advantage run by Mrs. Steele (Starline's Art Teacher) and other activities like Scouts and Parks and Recreation afterschool care.

    Starline Elementary academic programs are adequate but far from excellent. They have a reading program called AR where students have to read so many 'AR' books within a schedule amount of time in order to get so many AR points from AR tests. The only problem with this is that there is no consequence to kids for not reading except the some teachers take one grade point away on their language grade. So they go from an A to a B or so forth. Most of year is spent on preparing children for the AIMS test. Music and Art are limited (no instruments). There are no 'sports' except for PE class. Parent involvement is overboard to the point where they do the grading of children's papers for the teacher and the teacher never really looks at the paper to see the progress of the children in his or her class.

    do not recommend this school to anyone availability of music art etc are scarce not much help in the aspect of para educators or teachers aides as well as poor performance of lazy staff as well as poor quality of leadership of principal.

    Nothing but good things to say about Starline. The teachers do the best they can with the available resources. You couldn't ask for a better Principal then Mr. Danley.

    My daughter has only been in Starline for 1 year but from what I have seen the school really cares about it's students. Parents are encouraged to be involved in all aspects. The school takes pride in their students and their abilities.

    Starline Elementary School offers my special needs child a wonderful learning environment. The entire school is part of the team that helps each student learn. The positive attitudes flexibility creativity and patience the administration and staff provide is priceless. Every avenue for addressing the needs of my child are reviewed. The communication is consistant and timeley from both administration and teachers/staff.
