Daystar School Reviews

3 reviews
Our daughter started attending Daystar this past school year. The Daystar community was an answer to prayer for our family. From our first visit our daughter felt welcomed and accepted and we knew we had found a unique place. The school excels academically and we love their IB curriculum. The environment is inclusive, loving, and extremely caring. The transition of coming to a new school can be difficult for any child and we had some difficult circumstances as well. We were seeking a school that would offer not only great academic learning but also be a community for our family. Daystar has been all of that and more. Everyone we have worked with has been very helpful, thorough and very pleasant to work with. Highly Recommend it!

My daughter transferred to Daystar from a CPS school last year. We did not know what we were missing in Education/environment until she started at Daystar. The whole administration knows every students name and greets them daily. The teachers actually teach the students the skills they need to know. And they care about them as a whole person-not just their academics. Worksheets, excessive testing and monotony of busy work is not present at Daystar. Instead, the students love to learn through group projects, reading, and learning excursions. So grateful for this place.
We just finished our first year here at Daystar School and as parents, we are just extremely happy that we make the right choice to put our three kids here.

From the first time we went to the tour, we know that Daystar is our first choice. It felt like home.

We don't have anyone here in the states and everyone here treat us like we are a part of the big family. Our kids gain a bunch of aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.

Another reason why we chose this school because it is a Christian based school. Although it's Christian school, we have seen many of kids who are not Christian.

Overall, we feel like Daystar is the perfect fit for our family.
