    My son goes to Head Start located at Starr Elementary everyday. Our family has found it to be a great school with wonderful murals on the walls and a warm welcoming enviroment. The teachers are highly visible and the children are always appear well behaved. The administration seems well organized efficient and friendly. We are grateful that Head Start is housed in such a community minded open enviroment.
