Belief Statement

  • At Startown School, we believe Startown School is a safe and nurturing place where everyone will learn, grown, and be responsible citizens.

Overview

  • Startown Elementary, the oldest school in the feeder area (established in 1904) piloted the AIG nurturing program several years ago serving Academically Gifted children at the K-3 level. Other students are supported through an Exceptional Children's department that includes two resource classes, two Autistic cluster classes as well as providing Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy. Not only does Startown serve school-aged children, it houses one of seven preschool classrooms in the county. This program serves typical preschoolers ages 3-5 as well as preschoolers identified with special needs. Startown Elementary, their PTO, and community work diligently to offer Parent Nights, Fall Festivals, and a variety of after-school clubs and activities, including a Summer Reading Program.
