I get the impression that teachers and principle care a great deal about the success and quality of this school; my son was fortunate to have had very caring competent teachers

We have 2 very happy children who attend Starkweather and we are thrilled with the level of education, parent involvement, PTO, caring teachers and administrators, special programs and all that is offered to our kids on a daily basis.

Great teachers and a great school. Big parental involvement and super PTO. It isn't true that parent's can't volunteer or attend class parties. I volunteer all the time for my 3 kids!
