About our Great School!
Starmount Academy of Excellence is a multicultural school located in the south west side of Charlotte. As a diverse school community, our students and families are exposed to a variety of learning opportunities that view each individual uniqueness as an asset for our community. In addition, our smaller school size (460 students in K-5th+36 Pre-K students) allow for teachers and students to develop close relationships. Teachers then use their student knowledge to differentiate lessons that appeal to a variety of students' interests and learning styles.
At Starmount we take our relationship with our extended community very seriously. We strive to be a true community school, a goal that would be hard to accomplish without the involvement and support from our surrounding community. To that end Starmount has established about 23 partnerships each with its own unique contribution to our school community. These partnerships has afforded our students and parents with hands-on learning opportunities that otherwise they would not be able to access. Among these are Discovery Education Saturday Science Academy, Starbase Program for 5th graders, Adult ESL classes to mention a few.
The Starmount community is looking to further students' globalization awareness by taking our first steps in the implementation of our dual language program starting with our Kindergarten class. Two out of the four Kindergarten classroom are currently designated as Dual Language. We are very happy to report that both classrooms are at full capacity.
