Starpoint High School is one of the best schools in the county and we are ranked 13th in Buffalo. There are countless extracurricular activities, sports teams, and clubs for students to participate in. Some clubs I have been a part of include, National Honor Society, Math Honor Society, Science Honor Society, Donate Life, and Lock-in Committee. The teachers and faculty are kind and very helpful; they go out of their way to provide extra support for students. The students are smart, hardworking, and well behaved. The building is well taken care of and clean. We have a brand new turf field under the lights for sports teams to play on. We have one of the best musical programs in the area, as our production of Mary Poppins won the 2018 Kenny Awards at Shea's. My overall experience with Starpoint High School has been amazing and I'm sad to leave it behind.

The teachers here are really nice and willing to help you achieve what you need to get your degree. I personally had to drop from a traditional diploma and I'm finishing the last exam for my TASC (originally GED) diploma and I'm heading off to college a year early thanks to the support of the teachers and staff members up in our Student Services. My only issues with this school is that certain kids are being discriminated against by not only students but the administration as well, very unfairly. I have personally been discriminated against for associating with one of these students, who is really good, hard working, artistic guy. I also feel like there is not a lot of mental health support in this school. This school is better than most of the schools around my area, and while that's rather sad with the under-the-radar bullying going on in both the student body and administration, but the academic level here is very high-bar.
Overall, Starpoint has helped in so many ways to grow as a person. I found my niche doing musicals, Starpoint has an awesome program there, and a very supportive student body. Along with that, I still stay in contact with few of my close teachers which really goes to show that the staff there have really put forth that extra step to make students feel understood and like they have a personable relationship with them. Bullying is practically non-existent, the library is fantastic, and the arts and sciences are pretty advanced for a smaller school. I would not be who I am without the support of Starpoint High School
