Star’s educational needs

… are met by a modern, county-wide school system, which offers our children excellent educational opportunities. Elementary students attend either Troy Elementary School (K-2) or Page Street Elementary (3-5), while middle and high schools students travel only a short distance to attend West Middle School and West Montgomery High School, which are located just outside the town limits. 

The Montgomery County Schools are considered to be progressive, with strong technical/vocational programs offered alongside a strenuous academic program.
