Stargate Governance 101:
Why is Stargate considering expanding to a high school? The Administration and Board are working together, along with a dedicated group of parent volunteers, to investigate the option of expanding our school through 12th grade. Many of our students are finding that traditional high schools may not be challenging enough or they are not able to meet their unique gifted needs. Please join the Board on March 19th at the regular business meeting to discuss the recommendations of the investigation committee on whether or not to continue to move forward with plans for a high school expansion. You can also send questions to

What is the "State of the School" presentation? The Stargate Bylaws require the Board to present to the community the results of the community survey, an update on the financial status of the school, an update on fundraising efforts and progress towards educational goals.
