I taught there and I had to quit. The kids are out of control. The parents should teach manners to their children.

I loved the school my daughters first year.. I loved her teacher and I loved the way they engrained black and Michigan based colleges into the students heads. my daughter is now going into 3rd grade in sep and everything has changed since the last principal left. there is a huge bullying issue especially on the buses. They will suspend your child over anything and worry you to death while your at work with constant phone calls. There was an incident on my daughters bus with her driver, he threatened to slap her for putting her leg up on the seat, I told the school and the man in charge of the buses he did an investigation and found out that what my daughter told me was true. all the school did was report the situation they did nothing further to follow up or to make sure that this driver was suspended punished on anything else and I do mean NOTHING!!! how can you do nothing when the first priority should be the safety and well being of your students. I understand the main responsibility would be on the bus company however they were not involved enough for me at all. My daughters teachers were great however the school as a whole is going down hill I wouldn't recommend this school I am enrolling my child some were else for next year

I really liked this school the first year with Mr Vidido as the principal but since he has left I don't feel like the school cares about the kids as much, you either do it this way or no way. I have two kids here now and my younger daughter has had behavioral issues from time to time but instead of detention or coming up with other ways to handle her they suspend her and threatened to go before the board. This school to me has just changed for the worst from rules that completely make no sense to me feeling as if i can't work cause I need to drop everything and run to the school to sit with my child in class. my oldest daughter on the other hand is a good student never in trouble honor roll almost every semester, she is an example for them to know i don't stand for the mess my daughter does i just would like to feel like they had my back when i comes to my kids education which is ultimately whats most important to me. As for next year they will not be attending this school and I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone...

When my daughter started at Starr, she was barely able to read. We have been very happy with her progress there. Her teachers are wonderful, the principal is extremely dedicated and the entire staff is very supportive. My Son and daughter's teachers were especially good at getting the children excited about what they were learning. My daughter hates to miss even one day of school, even on the worst weather days and even when she feels sick.

What I ve experience since the inception of Starr Detroit Academy is the repeatedly demonstrated warm, caring, nurturing environment which encouraged individual growth in all of its students. Although the class size is large in number, Starr teachers go out of their way to make their students enjoy learning and accepting of the inevitable risks of failing to learn on occasion. Teaching did not stop with the classroom. The instructional coaches, mentors, principals, enrichment staff, worked to include and improve the students on an individual basis as needed by mentoring and providing role models. From the cafeteria to the media center, Starr Detroit Academy delivers an enriching experience for my children. I must say that Starr Detroit Academy has transformed my daughter and my son especially. They are soon to be 4th Graders at Starr. When they arrived at Starr, the challenge was on. Starr plays a large role in their development. The academic standards are incredibly high but the staff is committed to helping every student succeed.
