The STAR (Service to All Relations) School is a charter elementary school located 25 miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona, near the Southwest corner of the Navajo Nation. The school serves students from preschool through grade 8 who live in a large rural area that includes Leupp, Tolani Lake, and parts of Flagstaff. Class sizes are limited to allow for individual attention, and we have a waiting list each year. Families are encouraged to enroll students early to reserve a place.

The STAR School’s vision is to create a joyful learning community in which members develop the character, skills and attitudes for understanding themselves, living in balance, and serving all our relations.

STAR is the first all off-grid, solar and wind powered, charter school in the country. Sustainable living is a way of life intrinsic to the community which the school serves. We promote self-reliance, alternative building methods, and energy sources such as solar and wind power.

We agree with the evidence that small community schools can deliver a superior education. We have set out to be a model of how that can be done even in a community with few jobs, no public utilities, and high drop-out rates. We host workshops about our unique curriculum, sustainable living, place-based education, culturally responsive education, technology and the arts. Contact us if you are interested in our workshops.

Channel 12 News: STAR Students Harvest White House Garden

First Lady Michelle Obama got her hands dirty harvesting the White House Kitchen Garden alongside students from STAR School. STAR School was one of only three schools outside the Washington, D.C., area invited this year to participate in the annual fall harvest of the vegetable garden planted by the first lady on the South Lawn of the White House. “I’m happy that you guys are here to help me because we couldn’t get this done without you,” Obama said before the event.
