A very good and well rounded academic program is offered at North Star. it is my child's first year so I cannot in fairness speak about strengths and weaknesses yet but overall, I have no complaints. I would describe the academic culture as stimulating, challenging but friendly. My child has experienced some strong but friendly and beneficial rivalry between individuals and groups that has encouraged her to take her game up a notch or two. The school offers many perks and rewards that encourage children to work hard and do their best. The overall environment is very motivational and fosters learning and personal growth.
