The broader community at North Star is good but I do find that parent involvement is lacking. Parents are very welcome and encouraged to be involved in the school community and life, but seldom do get involved for some reason. More parent participation in the school committee and other school initiatives should be more strongly promoted.
Personally, the community at North Star Academy has always been very close and encouraged solidarity. I graduated 2 years ago, and I still see the majority of my graduating class quite often. Furthermore, myself included as well as other alumni's appear to frequently visit NSA as well as attending other school events that are held at North Star Academy, such as the variety show and spaghetti dinner. Moreover, the parents are always welcome to be involved in the life of the school and the administration always attends to the concerns of each and every parent appropriately. Majority of the parents also attend many of the school events held at NSA. Personally, I have kept up with the students from North Star Academy since I have left the school, I still visit the institution at times, and even attend the events that are held there.
