North Star is a wonderful school filled with exceptional teachers, principles, and other staff truly committed to seeing their kids succeed. A few years ago my son was blessed enough to make his way off of the lottery waiting list and was offered a spot in the 1st grade. Walking into this school literally felt like a breath of fresh air when compared to his prior school. Everyone we met on our tour that first day was very helpful and welcoming. All the staff had a genuine smile on their face and I could feel that they were happy to be there. Such a pleasant surprise!

North Star Charter is a really high-level education school with a great learning environment and great teachers. I had an awesome Freshmen year there. My English teacher told me that my class was learning 11th-grade material compared to the local public school. North Star is a small school - way smaller than your average high school. However, this allows the teachers and students to get to know and trust each other more, which I really like. One thing I would like to see change is communication of events and upcoming activities to the students. When I was there, I didn't know about a lot of what was going on in the school community. One time, I showed up and apparently, it was picture day, and I had no idea. This happened a lot when I was there and I think it's a problem. If I don't know what's going on in the school community, how am I supposed to get involved?
Overall, North Star Charter is an amazing school that gives high-quality education in a great environment. I love it!
Incredible teachers and academics. The school teaches the International Baccalaureate program, which helped a lot when getting into college.
