I may have mentioned before that Logan gets mad at me every morning if we're not out of the house by 7:30 am because he wants to go to school early. He joins the outdoor time before school with his friends. I think this is a great indicator that he thrives greatly in the school life at Star Academy. As for improvement suggestions, I do not have a perspective yet about the older grades but limited choice of friends due to smaller class sizes in later grades could prove to be a challenge. As of now though, Logan shudders in horror at seeing teeming masses of students playing outside in regular public schools because he treasures the small, family-like school life culture at Star Academy.

Both our children are happy and keen to go to school on a daily basis. Because school policies and facilities promote student safety – both emotional and physical – previous anxieties related to witnessing aggression are no longer a concern. They are appreciated by their teacher for who they are and what they bring to the table – in the case of our eldest, leadership, peer motivation, and athleticism – which has motivated her to work harder. She wants to achieve and receive constructive feedback from someone she knows respects her. Varied learning experiences also keep them engaged and interested. In addition, expectations in terms of assignments and support in achieving these expectations are clear, with smaller objectives being identified within the larger assignment. Smiles, shared laughs, words of approval, and constructive feedback have created a sense of trust between my children and their teachers. In essence, they are given opportunities to succeed and learning has become fun for them. While more intramural/extracurriculars would be appreciated, the small student population and lack of public transit make this challenging.
