Starks High School is great school with great faculty members who are willing to help in any way possible. I personally love how small the school is because it feels more like family and everyone knows everyone. I honestly would not change anything about Starks High School.

Starks High School is in the beginning stages of a renovation. The facilities were somewhat outdated, but that is now changing. Foundations are being built to create new and improved classrooms. This will provide a better atmosphere for the students to learn.

SHS uses technology quite frequently to complete assignments. Everything from attendance, grade records, class assignments, and report information is located online. Our guidance counselor is always available to assist us in any questions we have. She also is enthusiastic about helping us achieve our goals and go to college.

SHS also offers AP classes that prepare us for college courses. Dual enrollment classes are also offered. Overall, Starks High School is, and will always be, the greatest place on Earth.
At Starks High School, the administration is very involved. Every administrator, staff member, and faculty member make a great effort to be involved with the students. Bullying is often addressed and steps are taken to prevent this. The administration is very strict on dress code. Disciplinary actions are taken if rules are broken. Attendance is taken daily and kept up with, but sometimes is not enforced like it should be. If a student misses more than the maximum allowed days to miss, no action is taken. Overall, everything runs as it should.
